It’s no secret that Chicago is one of the epicenters of youth culture right now. While Drill music represents one element of the vibrant Chi-town scene, Jahzel, a native of the North Side/Uptown section of the city, balances soulfully tangible songwriting with trunk-rattling production. Though young, Jahzel boasts a track record that includes ghostwriting Top 40 hits for internationally renowned acts, a debut mixtape that featured platinum producer and friend KE, Lil B, and JBar from Soulja Boy’s SODMG, and features with Datpiff, Fake Shore Drive, Thisis50, MTV2, and MTV’s Suckerfree Sunday. Now putting the last touches his final free mixtape release, In God’s Image, Jahzel looks to raise the stakes yet again. The project will feature extensive production from Maybach Music Group/Wale producer Tone P, a Chicago-heavy feature list that includes Noelz Vedere, Mathien, A-Cross, Meagan McNeal, and Whitney Rene, and a plethora of videos for his most refined offering to date. In God’s Image will be released on July 2nd, 2013 via The Black Key Collective.
