Deuce Eclipse & J.Lately – “Caught Up”
At the end of this month, Bay Area emcees Deuce Eclipse and J.Lately will be releasing a collaborative album, called The Setup. Pretty big fan of J.Lately and new to Deuce, and I’m loving this first single from them so much!
Produced by Jamie Way, “Caught Up” fumbles over warm bass chords, slapping boom bap drums, and largely driven by a familiar 90’s RnB vocal sample, and I rock with it big time. The beat is what pulled me in, in the first place. Then came the guys. J.Lately tells a story in the first verse, about how he got caught up between two women and how it all fell apart. Stepping into the second verse, Deuce Eclipse raps about learning from mistakes and getting back up from those bad situations.
It’s a really dope track, and I’ve been listening to it on repeat. Listen to the song below, then make your way to Bandcamp to download the song for free. Look out for the album on July 31st, too.
