Brooklyn rapper-lecturer-activist Junglepussy deserves to be in the forefront of the New York hip-hop conversation. Even more so with her latest album, ‘JP3,’ which combines her comedic timing and sharp wit with sexually free bars and a grip of jazzy and billowing beats. Dropping nearly three years after her introspective and sprawling ‘Pregnant With Success,’ ‘JP3’ is a breezier affair that still packs the poignant punch that makes Junglepussy a standout MC.
Every bar JP drops is spiked with personality. From the caustic “State of the Union” to the groovy pussy eating anthem, “Ocean Floor,” featuring fellow New York rapper Wiki, ‘JP3’ covers all the bases that make for good hip-hop: confidence, sexuality, punchlines, and charisma. For all its brightness, there are equally tender moments in “Trader Joe” and the heartfelt closer, “Showers.” Of all tracks, “Showers” sheds JP’s humor to deliver an emotive verse about washing away the past and stepping into the present. With that, ‘JP3’ is as soul-baring as it is hysterical.

On this episode of the Sum'n To Say podcast we are joined by the incomparable DJ Wally Sparks to talk about his roots here in Atlanta and his epic R&B party The Groove. Wally also opines about the nature of "fickle" music fans. Is NYC still the mecca of hip-hop? Can meccas move? We dive into that topic as well. Also, Soulja Boy is a political activist (not really, but kinda?)
