Tennessee-born, Brooklyn-based Producer & Emcee Jake Palumbo unveils the 2nd single from his upcoming solo project, Jake It Till You Make It – “Exoskeleton”, a high-energy, no-nonsense diatribe featuring the emcees trading hard-body bars atop explosive drums & piano chops, topped off as usual by Jake Palumbo’s trademark snarky humor.
Shot on location in Brooklyn, the colorful visuals were directed by Megadon, who directed Palumbo’s previous video, last year’s “Tuffalupagus” featuring C-Zar Van Gogh.
Jake It Till You Make It will be available 11.18.16 on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon, Google Play & wherever music is sold. CD’s will be available shortly after. The 16-track LP was Produced by Jake Palumbo & features guest appearances from Roc Marciano, Ras Kass, Sean Price (RIP), El Da Sensei, Shabaam Sahdeeq, & more.

Jake Palumbo is a producer, emcee, recording & mix engineer, DJ, & the proprietor of SpaceLAB Recordings – a growing independent hip-hop label based out of NYC, as well as full service recording studio located at 251 W. 30th Street, New York, NY 10001. He released his 3rd album, Jobber To The Stars in November 2011 – a follow-up to his acclaimed 2008 sophomore LP District Selectman (also the name-sake of his “hood politician” alter-ego.)
A resident of Brooklyn, NYC for the last 7 years, Jake Palumbo spent his formative years in the grimy, unlikely setting of Knoxville & Johnson City, TN. Growing up geographically disconnected from modern hip-hop culture was an obstacle at first, but over time it allowed him to develop an eclectic production style & humorous, unnerving rhyme persona that unintentionally attempts bridge the gap between hardcore & almost “nerdy” audiences; just by being himself – “too abstract for the hood, too hood for the hipsters.”
Perhaps the only rapper influenced by Frank Zappa & Ric Flair as much as Wu-Tang & De La Soul (with a soft spot for low-budget “ignorant” rap) Jake Palumbo spits dense, complex verbals in his signature Southern twang that frequently blur the lines as to when he’s kidding & when he’s serious – the listener is often left laughing, head nodding, pleasantly confused. Though far more a storyteller than a battle emcee, Jake Palumbo’s love for the science of rap ensures his bars are never lazy.
