Peter Jackson to release singles with Ghostface Killah & Fetty Wap

This coming Friday (May 1) marks the start of a huge promotional campaign for Peter Jackson that will culminate with the release of his next EP, 23 and a Half.

On that day, he’ll pull the trigger on his new Slick Willie-inspired single “Bill Clinton” which features none other than Ghostface Killah of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan. Jackson has a long history with GFK and the Wu circle, having toured with him across Canada twice and also booking Wu-Tang Clan for four Canadian group shows over the years.

The new song is expected to drop with a video featuring footage from those tours, but there’s still a chance the visual release gets moved to Monday.

Along with the new song (and video), Jackson’s promotional campaign will get an immediate boost as Spotify, Apple Music, AudioMack and SoundCloud will all be involved in pushing the new record in one form or another.

And as if that wasn’t already enough, Jackson will be releasing his next single 15 days (May 15) later which will feature a more recent tourmate of his, Fetty Wap. The video is also expected to drop the same day as the song but we’ll let you know if any timelines change.

We were lucky enough to get an advance copy of the EP to check out and it’s definitely Jackson’s best body of work to date. There’s no confirmed release date for the 23 and a Half but HipHopCanada has confirmed with Jackson that it will be dropping this year.

We asked Jackson about the new record and working with Ghostace Killah:

“This record with Ghostface is a great look for me because I grew up watching him and Wu-tang, and then came into the business getting to tour with him on his solo run, but also opening and booking the group. So it means more. This is the first record to be released off of my forthcoming project 23 & A Half.”

Stay tuned.
