Keeping it short and sweet with track one from his album STILL SHINING II, Just Jimi loads up the barrel and releases an ephemeral sonic spasm titled EVIL.
He may be walking with demons, though this joint sounds like something from above instead of below, with a slightly eerie echo. Just Jimi delivers a kaleidoscope of cosmic notes, a celestial guitar loop, and a husky-like low flow that caresses each instrument as he pours his heart out over his past. You can hear the deep emotion twirling through his mind as he reflects and redirects his energy to the present while vocally delivering EVIL.
"I think it was just that late night/early morning time frame in the studio. I was by myself, and I remember a heavy vibe coming into the studio and just lingering over me. "Evil" was the culmination of that, looking back on how I got past a lot of heavy evil shit in my life, and a lot of those elements still sit on my soul at times. My purer self fights with that shadow self all the time." - Just Jimi
EVIL evokes the energetic combat between the darkness and the light within the soul, with the two constantly buffering and re-balancing long after the intention is sown. The memory of what was remaining with the choice to reignite the chaos or snuff it out, and Just Jimi captures the push and pull with this particular track.
"This was a beat that was sitting in a folder of beats producers sent me. If I had to say something, it would be what I expressed—it was a buildup, if you will because the production feels heavy, it feels cinematic, and it feels like something is lurking in the back of your neck." - Just Jimi
Adding to his excellently executed experimental catalogue, Just Jimi has dropped more musical gems, including a Pop/Punk Hip Hop blend with his track Otherside and a softer RNB track with Believe. He is scheduled to release his album SEE U NEVER and he has zero intention of taking a hiatus!
