Exclusive New Track by Willie IszJuxtapoz // Friday, 14 Aug 2009
Khujo Goodie (of Goodie Mob, Dungeon Family & long-time Outkast collaborator) brings a dirrrty South twist while Jneiro Jarel mixes up golden 90s, Crunk and Snap beats with psychedelic rock influences.
“We definitely want to keep that Dungeon, Goodie Mob, OutKast vibe. A lot of hip-hop is lacking that soul that Dungeon Family used to bring to the table. We’re holding on to that,” says Jneiro.
Gosohaurd (Milky Way Mix by Dr. Who Dat?) is available for your listening pleasure exclusively on the Upper Playground website. You can purchase Willie Isz’s album “Georgiavania,” featuring cover art by James Jarvis, online on iTunes, Amazon, Best Buy, Lex Records, In Sound, F.Y.E. and Target.

About Willie Isz
On the surface, the two couldn’t be more different. Jneiro is an acclaimed rapper, singer, and producer of bleeding-edge beats. In fact, he usually adopts a different alias for each album: 2005’s Three Piece Puzzle as Jneiro, 2006’s Brazilian-inflected Beat Journey as Dr. Who Dat; and last year’s space-hop adventure Craft of the Lost Art as Shape of Broad Minds.
Meanwhile, Khujo Goodie is one-fourth of the legendary Goodie Mob, the Atlanta quartet behind the groundbreaking 1995 classic Soul Food. His inimitable baritone and Southern wisdom is recognized by hip-hop fans the world over. He continues to be an underground force, releasing a well-received solo album, Mercury in 2007.
Together, the two are called Willie Isz.
