Multi-Disciplinary Hip Hop artist Jai Nitai Lotus releases his 4th solo album titled “An Offering“; A modern soulful Hip Hop journey that pulls on his own personal experience as an artist, father, community worker and introspective visionary. JNL’s thoughts are clear as he flows effortlessly through each song. Wether flexing his lyrical abilities on the energetic “Inner Space” intro or delving deep into his past to heal on the title track “An Offering”. Jai Nitai Lotus’s delivery is seasoned, tastefully honest with a strong intention to inspire and heal . The 8 song project is a concise piece of art that’s “all heart, no filler” with great play back value.
“In every verse a poetical search, In every hearse unforgettable worth”
– Jai Nitai Lotus
