JPEGMAFIA Shares New Song "Jesus Forgive Me, I Am a Thot," Announces Fall Tour

JPEGMAFIA, the Baltimore-born noise rapper behind 2018’s excellent Veteran, has been teasing a new “disappointment” (read: album) on Twitter for the past few weeks. Today (Aug. 13), we’re finally getting our first taste, the silky-smooth “Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot.”

The track finds beauty in chaos, turning the noise that opens the track into a buttery beat. Led by milky keys and stomping 808s, the production on “Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot,” done by Peggy himself, will make a convert out of those initially turned off by its harshness, highlighting the rapper’s delicate side with autotune-assisted vocal runs.

JPEGMAFIA’s stream-of-consciousness bars on the track are just as packed with endlessly quotable non-sequiturs (“Pray that I end up like Charlize Theron”) as they are with extremely online references to mental health: “I can’t feel my face, oh god / SMH, no ASMR.”

Attached to the song is a video that showcases the energy Peggy brings to his live show. Hazily shot by Andrew Mcglennon, the video places the rapper on a mountain and in the suburbs to stare into the camera while delivering the verses. He explains in a statement that “this video is just me existing. I wanted you to be moved by what’s going on.”

If the video makes you want to see JPEGMAFIA’s live act, you’ll be happy to hear that he’s announced a fall headlining tour featuring stops all over the States, which you can find at the bottom of the page. Watch the video for “Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot” below.
