J-Live’s long awaited fifth full length album, S.P.T.A., will be available on CD, vinyl and digitally September 27th, 2011. 

“S.P.T.A. Said Person of That Ability” (Pronounced Spitta) is the follow up to the Undivided Attention EP. The producer, deejay and emcee approaches this project creatively as if he were a three man group rather than a solo artist. 

The album features production by J-Live, RJD2, Nicolay, The Audible Doctor, Illastrate, Korede, Floyd The Locsmif, Marco Polo and Diamond D

...and it's really dope
