New Music Exclusive – J-Nice feat YZ the MC “Strung Out” (produced by RA Blaze)

“Strung Out” is a dope track from Albany, NY’s J-Nice; a rugged, raw, and gifted MC that has a knack for smooth word play. J-Nice and featured artist YZ use lyrics to tell a story and suggest methods for dealing with the pain of heartache and loss. RA-Blaze, a veteran producer out of Long Island, NY and member of Innovative Grind Music Group’s Team Innovation, produced this banger track reminiscent of Havoc, 9th Wonder, and old Kayne. Enjoy.
