SL Jones is excited to announce the release of his latest mixtape, Flight Risk. The project is being released to fans as a free download, available through the Little Rock rapper's Bandcamp.
With previous mixtapes, the list of guests – Clipse, Waka Flocka, Trae Tha Truth, Killer Mike, Pill, Chamillionaire– served as a testament to networking and mutual artistic respect. But with Flight Risk, Jonesy largely goes it alone; the 10-song mixtape features no big names. Flight Risk does, however, find SL continuing to work with a collection of top-grade producers, names that include Lex Luger, Shawty Redd, Young L, Sonny Digital, Honorable C.N.O.T.E., Metro, Smiff & Cash, and more.
Flight Risk, clocking in at 10-tracks and playing just over 40 minutes, is also SL's most cohesive, concise project to date — as well as his most aggressive. "I had a lot of pent up aggression – from my legal situation, from the restrictions it's put on my life – and the music reflects that," explains SL. "I wanted listeners to get below the surface, and give them a glimpse of what makes me who I am. I don't want my audience to just listen to my music; I want them to connect."
In addition to brash emotion, Flight Risk, SL's third release over the past six months, is a project that shows continued growth."The Number 23 was about showing off talent and range, while Pandamonium was reckless emotion, driven by fear, uncertainty, desperation, and confusion," he explains. " I'm learning to embrace the chaos and steer my emotions in any creative direction, and Flight Risk is the next step in that progression: embracing the bad and hoping for the best, all while fully expecting it to get worse."
"REEMA MAJOR THE 16 YEAR OLD RAPPING SESANSATION SIGNED TO CHERRYTREE / INTERSCOPE FROM CANADA. DROPS OFF HER LATEST VISUALS 'DOUBLE TIME'. THE LAST VIDEO YOU SAW FROM HER HAD A BIG COSIGN FROM RICK ROSS IN IT."
Introducing the latest face of original hip hop in the UK - 20 year old London based rapper Rax. This creative up and coming wordsmith is on the verge of establishing himself as one of Britain's most prominent musical stars, with a 6-month plan titled The Black Crook Project kicking into action at Midnight on Sunday, 2nd October. Based around Charles M. Barras' 1866 musical 'The Black Crook', the project will see Rax release 1 new video every 2 weeks for 6 months.
Mantra's second single from sophomore release Speaking Volumes is 'Voodoo Music'. In contrast to the lyrical introspection prominent in revered first single 'Got Me Wrong (featuring Parvyn Kaur Singh)' (Triple J's most requested song in the week following its release), 'Voodoo Music' is essentially a celebration of Mantra's aptitude for wordplay and metaphor.
