Japhia Life - The Profit Album Cover and Tracklisting

The Philadelphia based artist - Japhia Life emerges from an extensive stint in Cobb Studio, the modest recording facility run by his long time engineer/producer Jude Gavin located in the outskirts of Philly, to announce that his new album TH€ PROFIT is finished and will be released on September 23rd.

Jahpia shared, "The album is meant to pay homage to the music that I grew up on in the 80's and 90's, and is meant to shed light on my upbringing in Philly as well. I just wanted to make something that reflected my past musical influences, presented a high def picture of where I really came from, and was a daring enough body of work that I felt would push the culture forward."

When asked who the woman on the cover is, Japhia says, "I put my Mother on the album cover. After listening to the album I realized that I mentioned her in almost every song. She is a praying woman, and when I think back that picture of her to me is such a contrast to what was going on in my life outside. I remember her paging, and calling me every time she heard gunshots, to see where I was and if I was okay. And it also represents her strength and faith, and how eventually she beat the devil as far as my life is concerned. She won!"
