Boy Better Know co-founder JME has announced a new album, Integrity>.
JME first emerged as part of North London’s Meridian Crew, before joining Roll Deep with his brother Skepta. He later co-founded Boy Better Know, which mainly operated as a mixtapes and singles label but also enjoyed a roaring trade selling t-shirts, hats and more (as one Skepta lyric boasts, the label made more money from t-shirts than most rivals did off mixtapes).
Earlier this year, JME stopped tweeting (he usually tweets a lot), prompting speculation that something was up. Various collaborators and friends tweeted #FreeJME, playfully fuelling the fire. Turns out he was merely finishing a new album, Integrity>, out May 4 and available to pre-order now. Naturally, he returned to Twitter yesterday to announce this.
The album features vocal appearances by Skepta, D Double E, Frisco, Big Narstie, Giggs, Wiley, Jammer and Shorty, and production turns from Joker, Tommy Kruise, Deeco, Preditah and more.
And yes, he wanted to use more >s in the title, but he wasn’t allowed. Check the album artwork and details below.
