Jake One is best known as part of the G-Unit production team but also has an equally important voice in the underground hip-hop scene. Jake One made his name doing production work with artists like the Gift of Gab, Boom Bap Project & John Cena (yes, the pro-wrestler!) and went on to solidify his presence in mainstream hip-hop, appearing on albums by De La Soul, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Young Buck, E-40, G-Unit and Lil Scrappy, among others.
White Van Music (Out Today) marks Jake One’s first foray into producing a complete album in his well reputed style. The self-proclaimed ‘perfect beat writer’ and master record collector has put some of the most recognizable voices in hip-hop against a glitchy & soulful musical backdrop. Reading like a who’s who of hip-hop, White Van Music features appearances from Freeway, M.O.P., Slug, MF DOOM, Brother Ali, Busta Rhymes, Young Buck, Prodigy, Alchemist, Casual, Keak Da Sneak, Little Brother, Evidence, eLZhi, Royce Da 5’9″, Posdnuos, Black Milk, Nottz, Bishop Lamont, Ish (a.k.a. Butterfly of Digable Planets) and more.
