Video: J Boog – “No Pressure” ft. Snoop Dogg

On March 18th, J Boog released a new 5-track EP titled Rose Petals. The EP features guest appearances by Stephen Marley, Chaka Demus, and Snoop Dogg. A music video was made for the song featuring Snoop titled, “No Pressure.” No confirmation if we can still expect a full length album from J Boog this year. Inside our 2016 Most Anticipated Albums feature, we detailed a record that J Boog said would be titled Wash House Ting with 14 songs. If this EP is any indication on what to expect for the next full-length, then we’re pretty excited to see what else he has up his sleeve. In the meantime, pick up Rose Petals EP on iTunes by clicking HERE! Enjoy the song and video…
