Jah Huey is a 20-year old lyricist from Brooklyn, NY out of the ORGornothing collective. Born in Crown Heights and raised in DC, Jah Huey was always submerged in music with a Hip Hop journalist for a father; blasting classic New York rap such as Nas, Biggie, Boot Camp Clik, Slick Rick, A Tribe Called Quest, and even the likes of Outkast and Ice Cube. The conditions of his environment led him astray although getting his mind right, moving back to NYC in 2012 and rediscovering the music of his childhood. This was enough for him to gain motivation to pursue music, join ORG and intern at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. “Early Morning Hues” is an 8-track lyrical and soulful, yet exciting listen. All tracks are performed solely by Jah Huey, except “Pray” featuring ORG Prophecy & Cliche of Sacred Gzz, which is now available on iTunes and Google Play.
“The EP “Early Morning Hues,” by Jah Huey, is a lyrical, energy-driven mix of the flow of classic New York hip-hop and elements of D.C style and lyricism. I have been putting together this EP song by song for the past 3 years. Some songs were written this year and some were written when I was still in high school, revising verses and instrumentals and cutting out songs thats didn’t make the cut. I am speaking from the perspective from what I’ve experienced growing up in Brooklyn and Southeast D.C as a young man. The concept behind it is being and loving your truest self in order to become who you want to be, understanding that life is about the ascension of energy, just like the sun in the morning. I want to inspire listeners to realize their aspirations are achievable no matter what they might be, as long as passion and love are put into it and they trust their paths. I want people to wake up in the morning, play this album and feel fired up, ascending with the sun, ready to own the day and create their own reality. And most of all I made this album to express myself. To really tell the world who Jah Huey is, and what I think and feel on a daily basis. Coming from a kid that used to censor himself and had no confidence in the path he wanted to pursue in life. I made this EP primarily to free myself, and hopefully I can free many other people in the process.” – Jah Huey
