Emmy award-winning Oklahoma City rapper Jabee presents the Kyle Roberts -directed music video for “Monument” featuring Chuck D, the Hannibal King -produced single from Black Future, his new album featuring Chuck D, and Killer Mike as well as production from J57, Hannibal King and M Stacks. In 2013 Jabee released his album Everything Was Beautiful And Nothing Hurt (iTunes) on Murs’ 3:16 label. Jabee was already one of URB Magazine’s Next 1000 when his DJ Vadim-produced Blood Is The New Black mixtape dropped in 2008. His Must Be Nicemixtape collaboration with Terry Urban and Mick Boogie featured Green Lantern, 9th Wonder, Blu and Oddisee. His 2011 Lucky Me mixtape clocked 40,000 downloads. Jabee contributed a track to the official Boondocks Season 3mixtape, and won an Emmy for his writing and performance in a commercial for Science Museum Oklahoma (watch). Jabee was a vocal and focal point for a leading role in the new NIKE x Kevin Durant commercial “The Baddest”. In 2014 Jabee was invited to Shade 45 in NYC to be featured and interviewed by Sway of “Sway in The Morning” (watch). Chuck D of Public Enemy says “Jabee’s music has the potential to change the world.” Jabee says the song is about “me dealing with my insecurities, my faults and how people will kick you not knowing that you are already beating yourself up inside. The video is a picture of that and how you still need to be able to smile through it all.”
