MP3: J.Lately– “Can’t Go For That” ft. Von Pea & Bambu (Prod. by Oops)
The Bay Area Rapper Enlists Von Pea and Bambu For First Single From Forthcoming Let’s Just Be Friends Album, Debuted by GoodMusicAllDay
Prolific Oakland rapper J.Lately distinguishes himself as an emcee with soulful style and a laid back flow on “Can’t Go For That,” the lead single from his forthcoming Let’s Just Be Friends album. The infectious tune, which premiered on GoodMusicAllDay, has J.Lately teaming up with Tanya Morgan’s Von Pea and Bambu to speak on living life to the fullest and avoiding roadblocks along the way.
“‘Can’t Go For That’ is the perfect combination of hard hitting 808’s mixed in over a soulful sampled hip hop beat,” GoodMusicAllDay said in their premiere post. “J.Lately’s flow is smooth and very relaxing to listen to as he delivers perfectly over the Oops production. Another element of this song to appreciate is the storytelling as J.Lately takes us through everyday life and dodging obstacles as he refuses to be a product of his environment.”
Coming from the small town of Sebastopol, and having split time between Oakland and Southern California, J.Lately’s influences are eclectic and mesh together effortlessly to form his own individual style. A relentless drive has kept Lately on tour across the country with artists such as Zion I, Locksmith, Los Rakas, Chuuwee, and Rey Res to name a few. He has released multiple solo and collaborative projects, with his most recent solo release being 2014’s Make.Believe. J.Lately’s upcoming album, Let’s Just Be Friends, releases October 23rd.
