The highly acclaimed emcee/producer J Scienide presents his debut solo album “The Actual Heat”. The Washington D.C. based artist delivers a gritty 13 track project with features from hip hop heavyweights Kev Brown, Nolan, Supastition, Gensu Dean, yU and Grap Luva. With clever wordplay over dusty, rugged beats, this album brings the golden age of hip hop into the present day.
The project has quickly gained international recognition amongst critics and fans alike, having been featured on Hot 97 with spins from Dj Enuff, Peter Rosenberg, and Funkmaster Flex. The album was also featured on DJ Tony Touch’s “Toca Tuesdays'', DJ Eclipse’s “Rap is Outta Control” and Statik Selektah’s “Showoff Radio”. The Actual Heat charted #6 on discog’s 200 best hip hop albums of 2018 and earned J Scienide “the artist of the week” spot on "Sway in the Morning".
