Supergroup Spillage Village Released New Track & Video “End of Daze”
A somber yet poignant song that ends on a hopeful tone — which fans have been long waiting for. The crew composed of J.I.D, EarthGang, 6lack, Mereba, Jurdan Bryant, Hollywood JB, and Benji. recorded the song during (and largely as solace for) the pandemic, and yet seems to still ring true during a civil rights uprising. The track features the vocals from J.I.D, EarthGang, Mereba, Jordan Bryant and Hollywood JB and was co-produced by Christo (Revenge of the Dreamers III, J.I.D), Elite, Mike Dean (Beyonce, Nas, Kanye West, Travis Scott) Jay Card, Nice Rec and Olu (of EarthGang).

They say it takes a village to raise a child and Spillage Village aims to borrow from this adage to inspire stories aimed at rebuilding and revolutionizing our communities for the future.
About Spillage Village
Born out of block parties, college dorm rooms, and late-night house sessions, Spillage Village was founded by Atlanta duo EarthGang and rapper J.I.D and were then joined by producer Hollywood JB and artist Jurdan Bryant. The quintet released their first collaborative project, Bears Like This (2014) to a warm reception gathering a groundswell of support from peers.
Soon after singer Mereba and rapper 6lack joined the group and released their second critically acclaimed effort, Bears Like This Too (2015) with press dubbing it “a definitive statement from one of Atlanta’s most musically vibrant posses” (VICE/Noisey). Keeping its momentum, the following year Spillage Village made waves again with Bears Like This Too Much (2016).
The EP would be a turning point for many of the artists in the group whose solo careers began to take off, 6lack’s debuted his Free 6lack project (Interscope, 2016) and EarthGang and J.I.D signed to Dreamville Records (Interscope). Olu from EarthGang would say that the three “Bear” EPs acted like “checkpoints and markers in time” chronicling the rise of the musical mavericks. Almost four years later, sold-out international tours, Grammy nominations, and individual projects, Spillage Village is back to deliver soul serving the music.
