Billy Green Is Dead

Ynr Productions

Inspired by Gil Scott-Heron’s song of the same name, Jehst’s ambitious Billy Green Is Dead album follows fictional everyman character Billy Green on his solitary journey through an uncaring, individualistic world. Lead track 44th Floor – produced by Doctor Zygote of Strange U – comes midway through the record’s narrative arc and finds protagonist Billy at breaking point; “feeling like my life’s a major fail, standing on the platform waiting for British Rail”. A healthy dose of realism flows throughout the whole set, with Jehst’s razor sharp commentary on current life and times complimented by the production onboard.

The record is executive produced by Beat Butcha and features production from Jehst himself, Paul White, Beat Butcha, Zygote, Jyager, Beatnick Dee & DJ Finyl, plus guest vocals by Kashmere (Strange U), Confucius MC, Jyager, Olah Bliss, Eric Biddines and Ennio Lion, plus cuts from Mr Thing.
