JAHMED is back with another single, and joined forces with fellow rapper Freddie Gibbs to bring us “GLIMPSE.” The track is the first single of his forthcoming EP ARMANI and is produced by produced by Dupri and Extendo Beatz.
ARMANI follows JAHMED’s debut studio offering THEBOOFMOBILE from March 2020. The project was led by “TWOTEN,” and the track later on received additional guest verses for a remix from fellow West Coast rappers Mozzy and D Smoke. The original version of THEBOOFMOBILE only included a sole feature from ICECOLDBISHOP.
Earlier this summer, JAHMED also appeared on a single with G Eazy and Drew Love titled “Love Is Gone.” He also recently linked up with DJ Party Favor for their new song “ACTUP,” which will be featured on the Madden ‘21 official soundtrack.
Freddie Gibbs is having a relatively busy 2020, as he’s been gifting listeners with plenty of verses consistently, riding the momentum of his May project, Alfredo, a joint LP with The Alchemist. Alfredo, which includes features from Tyler, The Creator, Conway The Machine, and more, was well-received and debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 15. The 10-track project follows his 2019 release, Bandana.
Gibbs has already released a slew of visuals for the Alfredo, including “Frank Lucas” featuring Benny the Butcher, “Scottie Beam” featuring Rick Ross, and “1985.” He also traded bars on collaborations with other artists recently, including Problem’s “Don’t Be Mad At Me (Remix),” Machinedrum’s “Kane Train,” The Jacka’s “Can’t Go Home,” and The Colleagues’ “Red Vans.”
JAHMED’s listeners are drawn to him not only for his lyrical ability, but also the uniqueness in his voice. In a DJBooth interview, he explains the intention behind switching up his vocals. “By giving the listeners more than one vocal pitch—not too much—it keeps the listeners a little more involved with the record because you not used to the voice,” he says. “It keeps everybody on their toes about what else I can bring in the next bar, and what sounds different.”
