MC and Producer Jai Nitai Lotus (pronounced Jhai like Thai, Nee-tie) has recently released his mixtape project titled Acknowledgement. The title is inspired by the opening song on the legendary John Coltrane album, A Love Supreme. For Jai Nitai, it’s about acknowledging the original source of creation: the Creator, as well as artists he draws inspiration from. Jai reworks an impressive variety of productions from artists such as Pusha T, Haitus Kaiyote, Kanye West, Thunder Cat, Madlib, as well as includes his own originals. The Acknowledgement mixtape is being realeased in collaboration with Dudley Perkins & Georgia Anne Muldrow’s label, Somothaship Connect.
Also, a new video single is being released with this mixtape project. The single, titled “Noir”, is a heavy sound clash of styles including Hip Hop, Reggae, Soca, and Eastern music styles over a Dilla-esque groove. This song features the talented Vox Sambou (Nomadic Massive) rapping in Creole alongside Jai Nitai Lotus, with the chorus sung by the incredible Sam I Am Montolla, giving an anthem-like energy. The beat is produced heavyweight Montreal Producer, Kenlo(Alaclair Ensemble). The video is highly playful, colorful, and full of imagination. Check it out below!
