Chicago Street Legend Bump J Says It Feels "Good 2 Be Home"

Chi-Town legend re-introduces himself after returning home from prison. 

After serving a long eight year sentence for bank robbery, Chicago's Bump J was released from FCI Elkton in Lisbon, OH earlier this year. After keeping a low profile, the legendary street rapper finally came through with some new heat titled "Good 2 Be Home." Even during his incarceration, influential artists like Kanye West helped support the rapper through his trials and tribulations.

With help from Cardo on the instrumental, Bump brings his life to wax as muses over his personal road-blocks, perseverance, and plans for the future.

"Parked the Rolls in the middle of the Warzone (woah woah)/They should’ve never left me out the Feds/Its gon’ run you a hundred to get me out the bed/Instead of eating they steady beefin’ without the bread.Meanwhile, I'm chasin’ green down ‘til we out the red," Bump raps.

Back in 2009, Bump J was sentenced to a minimum of seven years in prison after being convicted of a 2007 bank robbery in Oak Park, Ill. The Chicago rapper had just signed to Atlantic Records at the time and was on the verge of working on his major label debut album.

Bump is currently working on a new mixtape for release later this year.

J. Cole's Brooklyn Day Party Nearly Sells Out With No Features

J. Cole assured fans he wouldn't perform for the rest of the year, but his latest announcement might change up the plan.

He will also be joined by DJ Spade and DJ Moma in collaboration with Straight Shooters. The Day Party was previously hosted by Drake with Virgil Abloh in 2018 with much fanfare. With the soon-to-be-released Revenge of the Dreamers 3,  fans are definitely getting a Dreamville overload. Rumors have swirled that the highly anticipated project will drop the same day as the event.

Tickets have quickly sold out for V.I.P. and selected general admission but you can still purchase General Admission Tier 4th tickets for $69.00.

With no idea as to what Cole will perform or if he will perform fans are hopeful. Dreamville recently released two singles off of the extensive collaboration project "Down Bad" with JID, Bas, EARTHGANG, J.Cole and Young Nudy and "Got Me" with VIBE Next Alum Ari Lennox, Omen, Ty Dolla $ign and Dreezy.

Tickets are currently on sale here.
