The long awaited & highly anticipated solo LP from one of Boston's most Legendary MCs and DMS crew member Jaysaun has finally arrived.

The new full-length features Edo G., Slaine, Reks, Craig G, Reef the Lost Cauze, Freddy Madball & others. With production by Statik Selektah, Marco Polo, Teddy Roxpin, Audible Doctor, Confidence & more.
Kill Ya Boss is a rare insight into the diabolical mind of one of Boston most recognizable voices. The album has a consistency from beginning to end not heard by hip-hop audiences in a long time. Jaysaun has been a fixture in the Boston hip-hop scene for many years but this is definitely his best work yet. From the intro song ANYTHING feat. Slaine we are reintroduced to the classic hip-hop head nod many of us have forgotten about, to the title track KILL YA BOSS, the lyrics and beats are infectious. Jaysaun's verses hopscotch between being arrogant, violent, and sometimes suicidal all at the same time. The Statik Selektah produced KINGS is a homage/respect paid to the world’s most famous rappers, singers, actors passed away but never forgotten RIP. While STRAWBERRY is a cautionary street tale for young girls to take heed of, before risking their childhood for a life of misery and prostitution. It is almost a more gritty version of Edo G.s hit Be A Father to Your Child. Jay also lets us into his own life & times on the Audible Doctor produced banger DIVORCED. The super group Special Teamz reunites with partners Edo G. & Slaine (La Coka Nostra) to form like VOLTRON. If u like classic and timeless hip-hop THIS is it period.
Jaysaun explains "this album is a direct reflection of what has transpired in my life the last few years, from my struggles with depression, drug use, and divorce as well. I couldn't find a better way to deal with my own demons than to put it on record. Kill Ya Boss represents my way of shining a light on some of the darker corners of my mind and taking the fans along with me for the ride."
