Local Rapper The Jacka Wants You To Name His Near-Trainwreck of a New Song

Pittsburg rapper The Jacka has a new album on the way next year called Murder Weapon. Today, he released the first track from the forthcoming project, simply called "Untitled." But there's a (marketing) catch: He wants fans to name the song.

Thematically, "Untitled" abides by a fair amount of already-established hip-hop concepts; mainly, striving to get rich and better oneself while avoiding the pitfalls of illegal activities. And the decision to sample the most recognizable part of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" is highly questionable. Luckily for us, The Jacka is a talented enough emcee that he can somehow salvage what should otherwise be a musical trainwreck.

 

 

If you'd like to name this piece of work, you can send The Jacka a reply on Twitter, and he'll announce the winner on Saturday.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
