Montreal-based MC/Producer Jai Nitai Lotus (pronounced Jhai like Thai, Nee-tie) is back after releasing his highly acclaimed LP Something You Feel, to bring forth his new mixtape project titled Acknowledgement. The title is inspired by the opening song on the legendary John Coltrane album, A Love Supreme. For Jai Nitai, it’s about acknowledging the original source of creation: the Creator, as well as artists he draws inspiration from. Jai reworks an impressive variety of productions from artists such as Haitus Kaiyote, Kanye West, Thunder Cat, Madlib, as well as includes his own originals. 

Jai Nitai will be releasing the Acknowledgement mixtape in collaboration with Dudley Perkins Georgia Anne Muldrow’s label, Somothaship Connect.

On this first video single and opening track “Honest“, Jai embraces Pusha T‘s “Numbers on the Boards” by keeping Pusha T’s possessed-like aggression, but flips the intention of the lyrics: “I see flaws, blood on your diamonds, see these wars that’s relyin’ on your minin’.”
