After releasing “First Day Out” and “The New Message”, J-Batters is back with a new song. Batters links up with label mate Money Meach of Take Money Entertainment, on this back and forth track entitled “Preliminary Hearing.” The song is a tribute to Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, the Boss of The Black Mafia Family (BMF). Flenory pleaded guilty in September 2008 to running a continuing criminal enterprise and sentenced to 30 years in prison for running a nationwide cocaine-trafficking ring.
The song opens up with a dope musical sample right before a sample of audio from the 1994 Drama/Crime Film “Fresh” drops in. J-Batters and Money Meach going back-and-forth, bar for bar. “You ever been down to your last, tryna plot on a lick/Or with ni***s thats acting funny so you know they’ll switch/Don’t slip, cause when it sink, you’ll go down like a ship/Order bricks, we takin’ hit’s and write it down on a list.
“Preliminary Hearing” is a hard kicking, snare hitting, violin-driven instrumental. “This for my ni***s in prison who couldn’t wait for mail/Preliminaries, keep fighting and stay away from twelve,” raps Batters.
Batters wasn’t the only one to release new music recently. In January, Money Meach released a 5 track EP entitled “Free Jay” in honor of label mate J-Batters. This was right before Jay was released from federal custody. Money Meach also revealed he would be working with Batters on a collaborative album produced entirely by Nard & B and Ease On The Track.
J-Batters EP, #Justice4JBatters, is set to drop Tuesday (Mar. 27). However before the rapper releases his highly-anticipated project, he has a few surprises for his fans.
