Sheffield spitter J.KAS has been cooking up some new material which includes a brand new visual for track, ‘Smack ’em All’ from the EP ‘Hometown’.
The the four-minute production came to fruition when the BBC Introducing artist was in the process of moving home and had two burning bins in the backyard for unwanted items. A lightbulb moment came and J.KAS called a local upcoming videographer, Shakeel Robinson – and here it is!
The video is a filler in the run up to the official release of the ‘Snapchat EP’ (June 2017), which will be accompanied by videos to ‘All Night (Sugah, Sugah)’ and ‘Snapchat (Ain’t No Killing My Vibe’. Also there will be a another track dropping titled ‘Dem Gyal Deh’, which features Sheffield alumni Franz-Von of K.O.G. And The Zongo Brigade.
