JPEGMAFIA, an Enigma

JPEGMAFIA announces new EP, shares "FIX URSELF!" | The FADER
JPEGMAFIA.

For the past 5 year or so now, JPEGMAFIA has emerged into the scene, bringing us new flavor and unique taste of what’s about to come and burst into the Hip-Hop scene. With quirky, original, bizarre and weirdly pop preferences, and sounds, Peggy has fully blossom into the heroes for the unsung. With the release of critically acclaimed 2018’s Veteran, and 2019’s All my Heroes are Cornball, he has set himself up as the new arsenal in the alternative and the contemporaries among his peers.

Rediscovery of past releases and discography digging culture of our era nowadays, makes him the most whom had one of the most die hard fans out there. Even when COVID-19 strikes, he still manage to connect to his fans through many medium. Such as interviews in Complex’s own Talib Kweli podcast The People’s Party, HTBAR series on Youtube, and even series of lectures on Cambridge Union.

After series of singles and ep that releases throughout the whole 2020 and 2021, he finally release his latest album, on his birthday nonetheless. October 22nd this year, he finally release his latest album and latest penultimate frustration in bandcamp.

Two sides of the LP!

JPEGMafia - 'LP!' album review: a wacky free-for-all ...
JPEGMAFIA – LP! (Online Version) (2021).

The album release itself had two versions that surfaces on the map. With Online version that available on the common streaming platform, and offline version on Youtube and Bandcamp releases. The two differs in track naming and an unreleased tracks due to sample clearance. Prior to the album releases, he frustratingly express his disappointment towards his label, and decided to quit from his label.

JPEGMAFIA – LP! (Offline Version) (2021).

“I live and die by the quality of my work, not the hype. And the minute anyone does anything to impede on that. You are dead to me. And that’s how it will stay. I had a contract to fulfill and I used a lot of things I was gonna save for the album just to be out of this s**t. But it’s over now. This is my last release under a label. From this day on I’m free as hell, more free than i already was something I haven’t felt in a long time”.

Roots of the strange strain

Had this album release not on his birthday, and the backstory was not established by the artist himself, it will not change the sounds, and styles that is so wicked comparing it to the first two label debut releases. I couldn’t paint a more beautiful picture of how chaotic, serene, and moody this album is. The luscious sonic escapism, have the same effect of dopamine releases on high points on this album and also the lower more contemplating sections of it.JPEGMAFIA has successfully paint a bigger picture into his mind, universe, mode of how he sees the world and took us into a journey of his heart, while he’s at it.
