About Spillage Village — 

Born out of block parties, college dorm rooms and late night house sessions, Spillage Village was founded by Atlanta duo EARTHGANG and rapper J.I.D and were then joined by producer Hollywood JB and artist Jurdan Bryant. The quintet self-released their first collaborative project, Bears Like This (2014) to a warm reception gathering a groundswell of support from peers. Soon after singer Mereba and rapper 6lack joined the group and released their second critically acclaimed effort, Bears Like This Too (2015) with press dubbing it “a definitive statement from one of Atlanta’s most musically vibrant posses” (VICE/Noisey).

Keeping it’s momentum, the following year Spillage Village made waves again with Bears Like This Too Much (2016). The EP would be a turning point for many of the artists in the group who’s solo careers began to take off,  6lack’s debuted his Free 6lack project (Interscope, 2016) and EARTHGANG and J.I.D signed to Dreamville Records (Interscope). OLU from EARTHGANG would say that the three “Bear” EPs acted like “checkpoints and markers in time” chronicling the rise of the musical mavericks. Almost four years later, with many a sold out international tours, Grammy nominations and personal projects, Spillage Village is back to deliver soul-serving music.
