Jansport J – p h a r a o h (Instrumentals)

Jansport J – p h a r a o h (Instrumentals)

Thomas Jefferson once wrote that “a little rebellion now and then is a good thing.” While one of our founding fathers was probably referring to our government and what could be America in 2017, Jansport J subconsciously ended up taking the adage to heart in the studio for his new album p h a r a o h. During a visit to the Rotten Apple one January in 2016, one of hip hop’s founding fathers–Rakim–and an intangible magnetism in the city brought on a break from his familiar narrative-driven album structure in favor of raw, gut feelings.

Small Professor – Prince Jawns (Instrumentals)

Small Professor – Prince Jawns (Instrumentals)

this was supposed to drop last year after “Queen Jawns” and before “Chicago Jawns”, but as it stands, it’s a good third release in my bandcamp-released only-sampled-one-group-or-artist project trilogy. i stressed over this one a ton, wanted to make sure i liked it first and foremost & also that my influences didn’t shine through harder than my own voice (i recently named an unrelated beat “too much brown sugar in my diet” for this very reason, d’angelo the gawd). i also did three collages for this jawn (the third of which ended up being the main cover you see here) and have included hi-res scans of all of ’em for your viewing pleasure.don’t rap on these, please. long live the purple one. peace.
