When Jay Bel‘s “Kate” began making its rounds on social media and Soundcloud last Fall, those that knew, knew. Whether it was Pro Era members throwing out co-signs or praise from some of Jay Bel’s group Sleepercamp‘s early fans, there was a growing consensus that Brooklyn may have found one of its most versatile new talents.
