Jwalt comes from the Bay with “Yours Truly”

Bay Area hip-hop artist Jwalt releases his highly anticipated debut album Yours Truly. The 11-track album is produced by renowned producer, DJ, drummer, and member of the underground hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics, DJ Touré. Yours Truly is also executive produced by media maven and SiriusXM radio host Sway Calloway.

Yours Truly gives listeners insight into who Jwalt is. The 18-year-old MC gained national attention when he became the youngest participant in the Sway’s Universe Doomsday Cypher in 2017. J rocked the stage with notable rappers like Quincey White, ANoyd, FVRTHR, and Pro Era’s Nyck Caution. His lyrical aptitude was obvious then, and with Yours Truly. Each track covers engaging topics such as mental health, family, relationships, and coming of age in the entertainment industry.

The beloved rapper, songwriter, poet described by Mistah F.A.B. as the “the next Bay Area artist to break” is strategic with the format of Yours Truly. Each song tells a story and highlights aspects of Jwalt’s personal life. “There are songs you can vibe, study, exercise, or turn up to,” he says. The album’s lead single, “THE KID” was selected by ESPN for NBA Countdown to be played nationally in between games, commercials, and recaps in early 2019. Anticipation for Yours Truly intensified when Jwalt released his second single, “Where You Been”. The track illustrated the depths of his introspection and poetic sensibility. It also became the intro song of his mini-documentary entitled, A Day with Yours Truly which highlights Jwalt’s monumental performance at the Oakland Arena with rap icons the Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Dave East, and Too Short.
