Brothers James Ray and Leonard (a.k.a Lenny-Lenn) Jackson have crafted homemade hip-hop in Denver long enough to establish friendships with some of the scene’s best and brightest. It’s those friendships — and the collaborations they’ve led to — that have us really looking forward to the forthcoming Aires Jackson album. “Independent” won’t be released until July 1, but you can steal an appetizer today on Steal This Track.

The list of guest stars on Aires Jackson’s latest joint will make your Denver hip-hop head spin — Haven, King F.O.E., Whygee, Sista Soul and Innerstate Ike are just some of the local luminaries who add their seasoned touches to the brothers’ roughly hewn beats and rhymes. Speaking of beats, production help from S.O., Qknox, 800 the Jewell and more certainly doesn’t hurt.

Like every Aires Jackson project so far, “Independent” will be available as a free download when it comes out on July 1. The brothers Jackson have been kind enough, however, to give Reverb readers a preview with the smooth, soulful and somewhat melancholy “Good Days/Bad Days.” The track features guest spots from Karma and B Blacc. Steal it today, and mark your calendar to download the star-studded album on July 1.
