Spillage Village, the Atlanta based hip hop group consisting of 6lack, Earthgang, JID, Hollywood JB, Jurdan Bryant and Mereba, has officially announced the release date of their upcoming album, Spilligion. The album is set to be released on the 25 of September, and the group will be releasing the album’s second single, “BAPTIZE” along with a video, tomorrow.
The group has seen huge progress made in terms of popularity and success of their individual members since the release of their most recent album, Bears Like This Too Much, released at the end of 2016. 6lack released East Atlanta Love Letter in 2018, as well as an EP in 2019, while preparing for the release of his third studio album. Dreamville members JID and Earthgang continued to advance through the ranks of hip hop both due to their individual albums, including JID’s The Never Story in 2017 and DiCaprio 2 in 2018 and Earthgang’s Mirrorland in 2019, as well as the massive 2019 collaboration project Revenge of the Dreamers III.
The reuniting of the group will be a welcome sight to see, and it will add a star studded album to an already packed 2020 discography. Between Earthgang’s unrelenting energy, JID’s lyrical and melodic prowess and 6lack’s charisma paired with beautiful vocal abilities, the album will provide a variety of approaches and styles of hip hop that highlight the various skills and talents of the members of Spillage Village. It will also be interesting to hear the development of the lesser known artists of the group, Mereba, JB Hollywood and Jurdan Bryant; although they do not share the same big name appeal as their contemporaries, their talent across the board will still be on display, and will likely have excelled noticeably since the group’s last album in 2016.
Be on the lookout for Spillage Village’s new single, “BAPTIZE,” tomorrow, as well as their new album, Spilligion, which will be released on September 25.
I have just completed my senior year at the University of Michigan majoring in international studies with an emphasis in political economics and development, with a minor in Chinese language and culture, and I have recently been accepted into the Berklee School of Music’s masters of music business program. Although economics, politics and history are all academic interests of mine, I consider music to be my true passion.
Music has always been my passion, and it is a driving force for the way I think, act, and conduct myself on a daily basis. I have been playing the clarinet and saxophone since the age of ten, and the ability to play music at a high level has allowed me to embrace music on a multitude of levels. I am both an avid player and listener of music, and I find myself constantly in search of new artists who bring something new and different to the art form, and writing about new music has become a new outlet for me to explore what is going on in the musical world.
