By now you should be familar with The Cave, rap producer Kenny Beats's highly entertaining YouTube series in which collaborators turn up to his studio and create a track from scratch in front of the cameras. JPEGMAFIA is a guest on one episode and he has returned to Kenny's studio for a new YouTube gem involving a playback of his as-yet-unanounced new studio album.

The 15-minte clip, which you can watch above, shows JPEGMAFIA playing two new songs for the producer. The first is "Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot," which dropped last week. Kenny Beats is clearly impressed, comparing the song to, "like if the dark web got a hold of your beat and spat it back out."

A second song is also previewed. That song, Peggy explains, features Buzzy Lee (Sasha Spielberg) and utilizes recordings of camp fires he came across in Hawaii. The vocals, meanwhile, are taken from his episode of The Cave.

Earlier this year JPEGMAFIA teamed-up with producer Kenny Beats for the "Puff Daddy" video. He also collaborated with L.A. group HEALTH on "HATE YOU" and released "The Who," an offcut from 2018 album Veteran.
