Rapper, producer and cultural disruptor JPEGMAFIA returns with new single “don’t rely on other men”—his first solo material in nearly four years. The self-produced track maintains a foreboding atmosphere while sending direct shots at the state of contemporary rap’s lack of authenticity. While introducing elements of boom-bap, rock, patchwork sampling, and a gargantuan distorted bassline, “don’t rely on other men” displays all the hallmarks of the kind of intensity, laser focus and unpredictability that JPEGMAFIA is known for. 

Since his last solo release in 2021, JPEGMAFIA has had a wildly impactful run—touring relentlessly in support of a raucous and provocative back catalog, establishing his status as one of global music’s most incendiary talents. In 2023 JPEGMAFIA released SCARING THE HOES, a collaborative album alongside one of his closest contemporaries Danny Brown. The album debuted at #84 on the Billboard 200 and #39 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and was featured on 2023 Best of lists from NPR Music, Rolling Stone, The Fader, The Guardian, NME, Consequence of Sound and more. JPEGMAFIA also produced six tracks on Ye and Ty Dolla $ign’s album, VULTURES 1, released in February. 

Alongside the release of “don’t rely on other men,” JPEGMAFIA has confirmed the LAY DOWN MY LIFE Tour. Kicking off in North America this August, the tour will make stops through September with further international dates to be added in due course. Tickets are on-sale now HERE. Full list of dates below.

JPEGMAFIA (Barrington DeVaughn Hendricks, “Peggy”) is a multi-talented experimental rapper, producer, performer and leader in the underground rap scene.

(2021), and toured globally including sold-out headline shows and festival appearances at Primavera Sound, Pitchfork Music Festival, CDMX, Listen Out, and more.
