Fresh off the release of his debut album, Rated Oakland. The Oakland emcee releases a brand new visual for the latest single “Tonight.” The Eric G. produced track features the lovely songstress Heather Victoria. GQ teams back up with “Another Road” director, Cam Be, great chemistry on set between GQ and Heather V.
Today is June 24th, 2014 and Jamla Records signee GQ has released his highly anticipated album, Rated Oakland. The fourteen track album gives GQ the zone to go as he gives us an insight through his city of Oakland, California. Been listening to this all morning, and I’ve got to say this is a great album. Features on the album includes Nipsey Hussle, Problem, Badd Lucc, Rapper Big Pooh, HaLo, Heather Victoria, and more. As with majority of the Jamla Records releases, they are produced by the Soul Council. Along with production from other Soul Council producers (9th Wonder, Khrysis, E. Jones, Ka$h), Sinopsis, The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Eric G handles most of the 14 records on the album.

Oakland’s own GQ is prepping the release of his upcoming album, titled Rated Oakland. After a couple of delays, and pushbacks it seems as if the Jamla Record’s emcee is set to release the album on June 24th, 2014. Today, here’s the release of his first single “Another Road” which is produced by Kooley High’s own The Sinopsis (who also produced GQ’s “Too High”). Attached is the official album cover for the upcoming anticipated album. Also be on the lookout for the official video set to be dropping soon, Directed by Cam Be.
Take a listen after the break.
UPDATE: Now with the official video to accompany the Sinopsis produced single. Premiered by Vibe.
After releasing the absolute fire track “No Competition“, Jamla Records shows no signs of slowing down. Today, they release a brand new track entitled “Walk On By” which features GQ and Heather Victoria. Khrysis is on the boards once again with this one. The Jamla songbird does a great job on this one, while the Oakland CA emcee handles the rhymes. GQ is dope, y’all need to stop sleeping. January 28th is the release date, Jamla Is The Squad.
That Jamla Records team stay making moves. Big Moves. A couple of days ago, Rapsody, GQ & 9th Wonder stopped by “Sway in the Morning”. After talking about her upcoming mixtape with DJ Drama entitled She Got Game, Rapsody spit a couple of bars and let me tell you, nothing but flames as always. GQ took to the mic after Rapsody and freestyled off the dome for Sway (which is from the same hometown as GQ Oakland). Be on the lookout for She Got Game to drop August 20th, 2013, and GQ’s album to drop later this year.
Today is Wednesday and the “Summer Of Jamla” continues on over at DJ Booth and with the good folks of Jamla records. Here’s a brand new release from Oakland’s own GQ entitled “Get Fly”. Although he has a great project with his Death Threats & Love Notes, it’s always great to hear new music from GQ. The track is produced by Khrysis and those spacey sounds though.
