A fusion of international influences and stateside hip-hop traditions, Jay Ghost and Che Noir’s collaboration single “You’re Welcome” is a testament to the ever-evolving nature of the genre. Che Noir, hailing from Buffalo, is both a potent emcee and a producer, her work deeply inspired by the gritty realism of ’90s hip-hop. With her musical influences rooted in the legacies of Foxy Brown and Notorious B.I.G., Che Noir has been carving out her own niche in the hip-hop world, showcasing her lyrical prowess and production skills in previous collaborations with the likes of Black Thought, Planet Asia, and Benny the Butcher.
Jay Ghost, born in Germany with a rich Ghanaian and Nigerian heritage, brings a worldly perspective to his music. Drawing inspiration from hip-hop icons like Jada Kiss, Jay Z, and Nas, Jay Ghosts’ style is both a tribute to these legends and a unique reinterpretation of their impact through his own lens. His previous collaborations with industry stalwarts like Jada Kiss, Tek of Smif & Wessun, and Grandmaster Caz have earned him a reputation for dynamic and thought-provoking lyricism. In “You’re Welcome”, Jay Ghost and Che Noir create a compelling synergy, blending their individual styles to deliver a track that is as refreshing as it is steeped in the rich traditions of hip-hop. “You’re Welcome” is featured of Episode 8 of Street Pressure Radio on Spotify.
