Esteemed comedy writer Jaboukie Young-White, better known simply as Jaboukie, is everywhere these days. Whether you know him from his polarizing social media presence, or his show-stealing roles on Rap Sh!t or Only Murders In The Building, Jaboukie has become ubiquitous within the zeitgeist of the times. Now, the comedy extraordinaire is giving his hand a turn at music. Last year, fans of Jaboukie got to know his musical stylings through his house-inspired debut single “BBC” and his scorching rap-fueled track, “Rockwhyler.”
This August, Jaboukie will finally release his long-anticipated debut album, All Who Can’t Hear Must Feel. The title is an homage to Jaboukie’s heritage and upbringing, and alludes to a Jamaican proverb.
“In the abstract, it’s like, ‘If you don’t heed the warnings of others, then there will be consequences,’” said Jaboukie in a statement. “But it can also be like, ‘Alright, if you don’t listen to me, I’m about to beat your ass.’”
Ahead of the album, Jaboukie has shared his new single, “Not_Me_Tho,” in which he celebrates his sexuality and queer freedom. In the song’s video, which is directed by Jaboukie himself, Jaboukie is seen walking through the city wearing a dress, leggings, black high heel shoes, and shiny red lipstick.
