Jesse Jagz Plans To Unveil Six Albums In Three Years
WORKING With Ice Prince On Third Studio Album The General Officer Commanding (GOC), ‘Jagz Nation’, Jesse Abaga, popularly known by his moniker, Jesse Jagz, has set himself a target to unveil six albums between 2015 and 2017.
Jagz made the disclosure in a recent interview with an Online TV platform, Pulse TV. “At the end of my current three-year contract with Chocolate City, I would have released six albums, two every year,” he said.
This year, the rapper and producer plans to release two albums named Gunspiracy Theory and Oddyseus. According to him, both albums are 80 per cent complete and discussions are on with the new management of Chocolate City on the mediums of release.
He explained that Oddyseus is more likely to conform to the registered formats of pop and Hip-hop albums, while Gunspiracy Theory will bring out his inner creativity, pushing the borders of Nigerian sounds.
Earlier, Chocolate City had released an album celebrating the merger with Loopy Music and the return of Jesse Jagz. The compilation album called The Indestructible Choc Boi Nation features all the stars on the Chocolate City/Loopy Music roster and related artistes, and has been released during the week for free, streaming exclusively on Star Music App.
Artistes on the album include, Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz, M.I, Nosa, Ruby Gyang, Victoria Kimani, Pryse, DJ Lambo, DJ Caise, Loose Kaynon, Dice Ailes, Milli and Koker.
Meanwhile, label mate and cousin, Ice Prince Zamani, has begun work on his third LP, which he confirmed on Instagram, captioning one of his recent photos: “A lil sunshine out the booth! Man no be machine bruh. 3rd album loading #JosToTheWorld,”
It would be recalled the rapper released his debut in 2011, titled, Everybody Loves Ice Prince with the production imprint of Jesse Jagz, and achieved huge success as it was widely applauded and recognised as his best record.
In 2013, he released his sophomore effort titled, Fire Of Zamani, which was also generally accepted. Jagz was unable to contribute to the album due to his exit from Chocolate City, but with his return to the label this year, the pair reunited for the next project.
Jagz admitted being responsible for the production of the LP. “It’s not even a conversation. There are some artistes I own their production rights…by the power vested in me. I am currently working on his third studio album,” he said.
Ice Prince was recently the subject of buzz after spending a significant part of last month in the USA, meeting with executives of Roc Nation, owned by Hip hop mogul, Jay Z.
