Deuce Eclipse & J.Lately – “The Setup” album

Emcees Deuce Eclipse and J.Lately released their collaborative album, titled The Setup, on July 31st. There are 10 songs, with production credits to Jamie Way, Oops, Mind & Matta, Falling Blocks, and Kevin’s Laboratory, and only one guest feature from Zion I. Switching between rapping and singing, as well as English and Spanish, these two Bay Area emcees lace up hard-hitting boom bap beats with intricate lyrics that are packed with tight flows, clever wordplay, positive perspectives, emotional depth, personal storytelling, conscious bars, and everything that you’re sure to like from Deuce Eclipse and J.Lately.
