Jay Worthy has kept busy in the early stages of 2020, dropping his under-the-radar but significantly solid project Two4one, a series of collaborations between some the rapper’s favorite artists like Kamaiyah, Cardo, Boogie, and The Alchemist. It was a West Coast-heavy affair inspired by vinyl B-Sides. Now Worthy returns with the first single titled “Can’t Be Stopped” from his upcoming project with prolific producer Harry Fraud, Eat When You’re Hungry Sleep When You’re Tired.

The introduction to the EP also features San Francisco native Larry June and is a nostalgic turn to early-80s hip-hop with a funky baseline, heavy synths and a melodic half-sung chorus that will be stuck in your head for the remainder of the day. It’s the type of music you want to listen to as the sun sets with the windows open.

“When I moved to New York City, I told Body to link me with Fraud as I always knew we would make something special,” Jay Worthy told HYPEBEAST. “Next thing you know we were locked in doing an EP. We was in the studio til 7AM every night. It had my sleep schedule and eating all f*cked up. The shit was fun though. I’d do it all over again.”

“On “Can’t Be Stopped” we wanted to make something that sounded like South Beach in the early 80’s with a player twist,” Harry Fraud continued on the collaborative process between the two. “Once we had the track rocking there was only one artist we could hear on it with Worthy… Uncle Larry!”

“When me and Worthy first linked up we just started going through a bunch of old music. As we were listening to all these songs from the 60s, 70s and 80s we started to key in on the same stuff and were chopping them up as we went. We didn’t necessarily start with the intent of making a project, but before we knew it the project had made itself,” Fraud revealed.

Eat When You’re Hungry Sleep When You’re Tired drops May 1 with other notable features from Guapdad 4000 and Big Body Bes. Stay tuned for more. In other music updates, Run The Jewels returned with a new music video celebrating the death of income inequality for their single “Ooh LA LA”.
