My emails from Buffalo's rapper/visual artist Just Ending Now, or Jeremy Jermaine Jerome, are always some of my absolute favorites. The guy reveals just enough to catch my attention, but not enough to show his full hand, as he poses lyrical puzzles for me to decipher his messages. Yesterday, I received my latest from JJJ, with a curious and to the point subject line of "this is goodbye!" Is he leaving the game behind or just his much loved home town? Allentown has been suspiciously absent of him since the holidays. Could this be the last Buffalo has seen of JJJ? Give a listen to his latest track, the Dead Beatz produced "Debt," while we try to figure this all out.
Update: A follow up email was received this morning with the subject line of "I told you I was going to be the first to survive" with the following photo attached. Has JJJ beat the 27 Club?
