Hip-hop supergroup Spillage Village has returned, announcing an upcoming project set to release later this summer with their first collective effort in four years. Titled “End of Daze,” the track comes equipped with a full-fledged visual directed by Caleb Seales featuring group members J.I.D., EARTHGANG, 6lack, Mereba, Jurdan Bryant, Hollywood JB and Benji. In a recent press statement, it was revealed that the group operates under the “it takes a vilalge to raise a child” mentality and “aims to borrow from this adage to inspire stories aimed at rebuilding and revolutionizing our communities for the future.”
“End of Daze” was written during the coronavirus quarantine and remains just as fitting during the Black Lives Matter protests currently sweeping the country and demanding social justice reforms and the end of systemic racism. J.I.D.’s verse is a particular showstopper as he raps, “When I make it to the heavens, what’s the code? Do I call a phone?/ Security at the gate, no plus one, come all alone?/ All along the race of life, I took a jog alone/ Along the coast, I’m tryna cope, I raise a toast.” The chorus is timely too, as Doctur Dot, J.I.D., Mereba and Johnny Venus sing, “It’s the end of days, end of times/ My, oh my/ Up in a blaze, you can’t hide/ Why oh why? All the kids afraid, momma cries/ God packed his bags and said, “Bye-bye.”
The track was produced with involvement from Mike Dean, Nice Rec, Johnny Venus, Jay Card, Christo and Elite. The group’s chemistry is undeniable and you might wonder why it’s been so long since they’ve released a project together. Then you remember the collective’s solo success including multiple GRAMMY Nominations. “End of Daze” follows 2014’s Bears Like This, 2015’s Bears Like This Too, and 2016’s Bears Like This Too Much.
