About The Extended Play EP, T.J. Miller’s overindulgent 41-Track hip hop opus, 4th Street Funny said “The beats on this album are infectious. The most no-bullsh*t hip-hop beats I've heard on an album in years. They’re produced almost exclusively by Jesse Case... an unknown producer to me, but if JAY-Z ever hears this sh*t then I can't imagine how he won't become a household name.” As of yet, he has evidently not heard this sh*t.
