Artist Jape releases his newest EP called PLAY.
Online PR News – 05-October-2016 – New York, NY – Hailing from Toronto, Jape is no newcomer to the music scene. “I feel like I was born an artist. I've been involved with music since I was 11, starting with piano and teaching myself how to play guitar. When I graduated from school I realized the "normal" world wasn't for me and decided I'd give this dream my all or die trying,” says Jape.
With a loyal, local fan base, Jape is ready to internationally expand his music and the PLAY brand outside of Canada with the release of his new EP, which includes simplistic but symbolic graphics along with solid singles. The chemistry of Jape and Prezident Jeff is clearly exemplified throughout the EP with Jape’s relentless flow over the melodic, hard beats. The EP includes five tracks:
U Better (p. Prezident Jeff)
DOA (p. High Klassified)
Come Alive (p. Prezident Jeff)
Never Let Go (p. Prezident Jeff)
Bezel ft. Thorobread (p. Prezident Jeff)

Inspired by the 90’s in sound, Jape channels the nostalgia that his generation feels when they hear a good 90s record – some big influences being Tupac, Jay Z, Jadakiss, Jodeci, and Kanye West. In the past, Jape has opened for Freeway of Rocafella, MadeInTYO, and Audio Push, and Zaytoven as well as crushed performances at South By SouthWest (SXSW), North By NorthEast, and Canadian Music Week. Driven to be “legendary” and push the culture forward, Jape creates music and art like the best of the best.
