Bay Area, California emcee J.Lately presents the Erica Eng-directed music video for “Papayas & Blunt Smoke”, the Space Cadet-produced single from J.’s album ‘Be Fucking Happy‘, featuring guest appearances from Demrick, Khyenci Tienne, Rexx Life Raj, Beejus and KBong as well as production from Mikos Da Gawd, Chase Moore and Kris Rewlz.
Hailing from Sebastopol, and having split time between Oakland and Southern California, Lately has toured with Zion I, Locksmith, and A-Plus of the Hieroglyphics, and his previous releases include “Save Yourself” featuring Blu and visuals for “I’ll Be Living” and “Breathe“.
Lately says about the single:
“The minute that Space Cadet played me this beat I knew I wanted to make this song. I often get caught up in all the troubles of the world, or searching for all the answers to life, but with this one I just wanted to make a fun song that appreciated the small joys of life. I wanted to live in the moment.”
