Emmy award-winning Oklahoma City rapper Jabee presents the Steve Jones/Digital DDK-directed music video for “Exhausted”, his new single produced by Statik Selektah which will appear on Black Future, his forthcoming album featuring Chuck D, Brother Ali and Killer Mike as well as production from J57, Hannibal King and M Stacks. In 2013 Jabee released his album Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt (iTunes) on Murs’ 3:16label. Jabee was already one of URB Magazine’s Next 1000 when his DJ Vadim-produced Blood Is The New Black mixtape dropped in 2008. His Must Be Nice mixtape collaboration with Terry Urban and Mick Boogie featured Green Lantern, 9th Wonder, Blu and Oddisee. His 2011 Lucky Me mixtape clocked 40,000 downloads. Jabee contributed a track to the official Boondocks Season 3 mixtape, and won an Emmy for his writing and performance in a commercial for Science Museum Oklahoma (watch). Jabee was a vocal and focal point for a leading role in the new NIKE x Kevin Durant commercial “The Baddest”. In 2014 Jabee was invited to Shade 45 in NYC to be featured and interviewed by Sway of “Sway in The Morning” (watch). Chuck D of Public Enemy says “Jabee’s music has the potential to change the world.” Black Future drops late June. Jabee has been added to Murs and Propaganda’s summer 2016 tour.
