Jpegmafia Goes After Keyboard Warriors On His New Single, ‘Beta Male Strategies’

Jpegmafia‘s third solo album All My Heroes Are Cornballs isn’t out until Friday via EQT Recordings, LLC, but that didn’t stop the Los-Angeles-based artist from releasing a new song this week. Tuesday, Jpegmafia rolled out single “Beta Male Strategies”. The track is the third track on Jpegmafia’s 18-track effort and second single. Over a hazy, sharp beat with melodic vocals sprinkled in, Jpegmafia spends his verses mocking “keyboard warriors,” or those who express their feelings online.

“Aight, we gon’ do it like this,” Jpegmafia raps on the second verse. “Say what you said on Twitter right now / You only brave with a board and a mouse / You wasn’t talkin’ when I put you in the ground / Don’t leave the house / Don’t get capped by a n***a in a motherf*ckin’ gown.”

Jpegmafia’s All My Heroes follows up his critically-acclaimed 2018 album Veteran. The album will feature Kenny Beats, DJ Dahi, James Blake, Jeff Tweedy, and Hannibal Buress, most notably. Next month, Jpegmafia will take his album on the road as part of his ‘”JPEGMAFIA Type Tour”.
