Word to KRS-One, The Bronx has often been cited as the true–uncontested–birthplace of hip-hop. Many of the culture’s elite have emerged from the borough, which makes the aura of the section of New York City so influential among its residents. One of those residents os John J–and Emcee with a penchant for the 90s flair that made the culture so great. In the past, he’s collaborated with top-tier acts like Crooked I, and has a stack of tracks under his belt; in total, his DatPiff has eight releases for your listening pleasure.
His latest record, “Move Back,” is a grimy record full of punchlines, precise cuts, and references to wolves–worth a spin! Check it out below, and if you’re feeling it, explore what else he has to offer.
