Je$u$ - XII APOSTLES [Beat Tape]
Je$u$, this is a good beat tape. Je$u$ is a producer out of Germany who specializes in making instrumental hip-hop jams. XII APOSTLES is 12 tracks deep, all Roman numeral titled, all jazzy, soulful samples, all fuzzy head nodders. “III” has a tight little bossa nova backdrop to accompany its clobber, jab-step percussion. It’s chill. “IV” has this Roberta Flack “Feel Like Makin’ Love” sexy downtempo vibe. Its got this guitar lick (it’s so familiar) that steals the show. Urban Waves hosts this dope tape and it’s available on cassette if you like the ’80s and still rock a Walkman. This tape is awesome.
