JUBILEE II is a Hip-Hop project with a timeless funk and soul feeling that's sure to be an instant classic with the perfect vibe for your summertime cookout.
Written and performed by Jada Imani and produced by Will Randolph V. Jubilee II is a sequel to the first Jubilee EP, released by Jada and Will in February 2021 to honor of Black History Month. Both albums are part of Jada's six-month EP series.
We are excited to announce that the album's creators have teamed up with Oaklandish for a unique merch collaboration.
Jada Imani is a Bay Area-grown hip-hop and neo-soul artist.

She collaborated with them for three and half years, hosting hundreds of artists and building a thriving community.
She is a voting member of the Grammys Recording Academy and has collaborated on projects with Adidas and the Oakland Museum of California. However, her passion remains rooted in grassroots projects.
