Have we discussed Jay Kell at length before today? Yes. Today’s a little special though. Today, we’re digging into the Houston native’s first full length project, Muddy Melodies. With production from Beats by Relli and The Other Beats, the 11 track project combines dark views into a variety of subject matter. From “Addiction”, a story that personifies drug addiction over a sample of Outkast’s “Jazzy Belle” to “These Dreams”, a commentary on the woes of being an artist. The project title becomes more and more fitting as you wade your way through some pretty deep content.

Kell’s quick lyricism and creative wordplay create a listening experience that bears repeating.
