“I got Friday Patience,
So I don’t wait.
But the time that its taken,
That might change…”
Jacobi Ryan, “Friday Patience”
It’s week four of Jacobi Ryan’s “52in365 Formerly Fresh” campaign and this week Jacobi delivered another banger – the soulful and hip hop inspired track entitled “Friday Patience”. Produced by Tuelv, this track touches upon a variety of topics including the influence of his upbringing by his parents, however the central theme of the track is about his true testament of his patience and aggressive determination to path forward – or maybe wait. (Check out his podcast on Monday to hear his take on the track.) Similar to some of his previous releases, on “Friday Patience” Jacobi never let’s you forget what time it is with him – “I got the fire/Who want me to be the arsonist?/ I ain’t never been too concerned about who really started it….”). False Evidence Appearing Real? He from Lawton – not this artist.
Producer Tuelv comes through on this track with the horns and strings with the same razor sharp expertise of a Pete Rock or a J Dilla and Jacobi delivers on point lyrics and a mean ass flow filled with so much conviction about his personal ideologies – you’ll stan for him because he dope. I hope to hear more music from these two again at some point during this campaign.
So, “Heyyyyy, ayyyyyy” (in my Jacobi voice from the “Friday Patience” track)… listen and enjoy the snippet y’all!!
“Friday Patience” is now available on all digital streaming platforms.
