about

The idea of this EP has been in the works for about 6 months now, while the range of songs has been worked on for almost a year. The title, "Testing the Waters" is about me as a producer finding where I am comfortable. The EP starts slowly, and shows where my tastes were when I began producing. "Interlude" is a reflection on my lack of complexity in my tracks. "Break it Down" and "Saucin" are tracks that I took inspiration from other artists from - Flagz & Quix. Flagz has been a huge help to me ever since I began producing and has helped me with multiple things such as sound design and how to mix/master tracks properly, so big s/o to you, Christoffer. The next 3 tracks are a reflection of when I began to take more time on my songs. "Lights Out" was the most complex track on this entire EP, and took me the most time to complete. A lot of problems were face during the making of that track - and my POS laptop didn't help. "Beat Em Up" is a track that I took inspiration from Herobust on, like his track "Dirty Work." The final track of the EP, "RCKTHS," is a reflection of me when I used to play the guitar, which I gave up for other reasons, and regret a whole lot. I grew up on rock and metal music, and it was a nice twist to add the guitar and percussion used in those genres.
Blood, sweat and tears went into this EP and I'm so excited to finally share it with everyone.
Thank you everyone who has supported me so far on my journey.
With much love,

~Jake

Track Name: Saucin'
Nobody close
look at my clothes.
Champagne and bottles
we making a toast,
making a toast.
Making some bread,
and I'm lost in the sauce,
and I brag and I boast.

I don't worry about nothing,
Ratchet shit, that hood ring.
Need a bad bitch, fuck an average.
Damn she got a nice nose ring.
I don't worry about nothing,
Ratchet shit, that hood ring.

and she got a nice nose ring.

Track Name: Lights Out
All black as I descend into darkness,
Old-school as I run with a grill and some parchment,
it's a bargain.
Damn this is our shit.
Some lethargic,
got a tree like Tarzan.
Damn,
now it's so abstract.
Where the cash,
you can find it in her ass crack.
Can I get a couple bitches just to snapchat.
Tell 'em get over rap,
I just need something to laugh at.
Tell 'em get over rap,
I just need something to laugh at.

Talkin' shit and I'll back it up,
Taking shots and I'm acting up.
And I don't even stop 'till I see the back of the cup,
Back of the cup,
Now the whole pack up.
Honies be cuffin and people go yappin,
I stay in the back, I ain't talking a lot.
Button my shirt and I tighten my tie,
and you look in my eyes when you talk to this boss.

Caught up and I'm living in it right now,
I drink a lot of liquor and I like it.
And the keep a brother around for the right sound,
When I'm on the mic everybody just pipe down,
Pipe down.
Right Now.
Pop a bean,
do a line.
Right Now.
Get me in the lights now.
Smoking weed, sippin wine
With the lights out,
Lights out.
Now.

'Cause I'm badder and I motherfucking know it,
You can see it in my face.
I'm smug and I show it.
I give it out like I owe it.
You should listen to what I say,
I'm a modern day poet.
You,
I do.
Jeff Bridges.
No need for attitude,
I be turning necks, bitches.
Hop in the way, Lou.
You'll never come back when you take these bitches.
I'm...

I just need something to laugh at.

Talkin' shit and I'll back it up,
Taking shots and I'm acting up.
And I don't even stop 'till I see the back of the cup,
