Directing us into his first track that proceeds the upcoming debut EP set for release in a few months, JIRI shows us his Bo Jackson attitude on this gritty entry that brushes away the wackness from others in the game with ‘No Excuses‘ (prod. Cedes).

Reading, Pennsylvania-born JIRI is a Raleigh, North Carolina-based indie Hip hop artist who drops ice-cool bars that slice so fine like a mature wine ready for his big moment.

As he opens the door and sends a message to anyone out there who is not honouring this legendary art form as it certainly deserves, JIRI seems like he is here for the long term as there is much to like about his potently projected delivery.

‘No Excuses‘ (prod. Cedes) from Raleigh, North Carolina-based indie Hip hop artist JIRI, is a ferocious release that is all street-savvy and esthetically pleasing for all those underground fans who know what good music should sound like. The flow is heavy and fly-filled, as he rocks the mic and sends our speakers in a happy trance. This is an artist who has been building for this moment and unleashes something rather special, that we all needed to hear.
