Baltimore experimental rap artist JPEGMAFIA has dropped a brand new surprise track with ‘BALD!’, a song he says is dedicated to his fellow bald men out there.

Some new heat from Baltimore experimental rapper JPEGMAFIA is here, with a brand new surprise track that is titled ‘BALD!’, and finally puts some bald-headed representation into the media.

Channelling Ray Allen, (his words, not ours) over some glossy production, the rapper and producer has proven yet again that he will not rest, with this new track coming only months away from his last full-length album All My Heroes Are Cornballs. 

“MY NEW MUSIC WILL TARGET THE BALD DEMOGRAPHIC. IF U GOT A FUCKED UP HAIRLINE THIS FOR U,” he wrote on Twitter upon dropping the song on Thursday evening. The one-off single arrives with a self-directed video that has him fooling around in his prized Playstation sweatshirt. You can watch the video at the bottom of this post.

“BALD!” marks JPEGMAFIA’s first solo single since releasing his last album All My Heroes Are Cornballs back in September, which followed 2018’s Veteran. In the past year, he’s collaborated with Danny Brown (“3 Tearz,” which also features Run the Jewels), Vegyn (“Nauseous/Devilish”), and Tkay Maidza (‘Awake’).

JPEGMAFIA’s recent collaboration with our very own Tkay Maidza is still on constant repeat, and proved that Tkay can jump on any beat and make it her own. Here’s what we wrote on the song:

Maidza is still evolving past her final form, and it seems with ‘Awake’ she has found her footing and is now just clearing land to build her full-time residency in the landscape of worldwide rap.

JPEGMAFIA himself is a pleasant surprise on the feature, as the artist usually hops on tracks with artists of a similar experimental inclination to himself.
