Since wowing hip hop fans in 2015 during his performance for the BET Hip Hop Cypher, North Carolina emcee Jackie Spade has had a steady output of new music. Between mixtapes and EPs, the rapper has released a total of seven projects since 2011. Perhaps his most significant project yet is his forthcoming proper debut full-length album Aurafication (due out via Champion Sound Recordings/Common Cents Media Group in February 2019). Today (12/18/2018), Jackie shares the album’s DJ Slim-produced lead single “MIA.”
“When you don’t want to be found, it seems like everyone is looking for you. MIA is a modern day ‘Fade to Black’ ‘outerlude.’” – Jackie Spade
