I’ve been meaning to put up something about JD Era since I started at B&B, and now I’ve got a good reason to post. JD is a Toronto emcee that the city’s hip-hop community has much love for, even after going on hiatus for a minute. I will be honest with you: JD is not a stellar lyricist, and therefore doesn’t put out material with strong retaining value (no shots, it’s just the facts). That being said, he is by no means a sub-average rapper and can ride a beat nicely. Th1RT3En drops this Friday and from what I’ve heard on the leaked side of things, it’s shaping up to be pretty good overall. JD already has the sick cover art and features from Drake and Saukrates, so at least he’s off to a good start. Catch the tracklisting and listen to to the latest leak, “You Know This” (sampling Rihanna’s “Hard”), after the jump. Via cityonmyback.
Update: Download link for the tape is now up. Grab it after the jump.
