JC Tha God- Tha Hidden Gem

One of Tampa Bay’s premier spitter JC Tha God, takes aim for the Top Album of 2022 with “Tha Hidden Gem”.


The “Intro” takes place at an award show, awarding JC Tha God album of the year, for “Tha Hidden Gem”.

After that we are greeted with a bar fest on “Say Something” featuring Jajy. One of my favorite joints off the album, I dig the confident vibe coming from the beat and JC’s voice. The chopped and screwed aspect adds a southern vibe to the song.

“Tlk 2 Em” is another bar fest. One things for sure JC definitely came with the punch lines on this project. That David Blaine line was cold. JC’s flow on this joint is A1.

JC takes aim at the game on “E Money X Tha God Freestyle”. JC & E Money take y’all to church with a barrage of bars. Crazy punch lines coming from both sides.

“Trustworthy” is a bit more introspective vibes from JC. The beats and bars are still there but this time we get a bit more from the man.

JC sends a message to his haters on the “Interlude”, putting everyone in check.

“Judgement Day” is one of my favorite tracks on the project. I dig all the low key hip hop references throughout the song. The beat reminds me of something Apollo Brown would drop. We need a video for this one.

“Keepin It Close” has a groovy seventies vibe to it. JC keeps that thing on him so don’t over step. The vibe of this track puts JC as the star in his own blaxploitation film. This one’s definitely making its way onto “The New Tampa Bay Playlist”.

“What If” puts JC back in that introspective lane once again. This joint has an old school sound to it making it sound like it’s from the Golden Era.

“My Truth” featuring Krysis TheWord has a bit of a melancholic vibe to it. The added vocals towards the mid section of the track added a nice change of pace from the rest of the tracks on the album.

“Maze Of Life” puts JC back in that pocket where he really shines. The beat on this track is my favorite on the whole project. I’d like to see some visuals for this joint around the 813.

The project closes out on “Look At U$” featuring Jajy. It’s a guarantee the hook will get stuck in your head. This feel good track didn’t sound forced, which could happen on an album that’s mainly focused on bars. Solid track.

JC Tha God brought it with the bars on “Tha Hidden Gem”. I could definitely see him becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Tampa Bay scene. Can’t wait to see how he expands on his sound on the next project.
