PR: Streets Is Watching: J. Monday


From Clout Media:

Streets Is Watching: J. Monday

J. Monday is P.A.'s hottest new emerging artist making noise in and around The Keystone State. Read The Capital Kid's new interview at StreetLogik.com where he takes you inside his mind and the recording process of his new mixtape The Sequel. Here's some of what Street Logik had to say:

Some emcees can’t help but to keep it real, not in a superficial attempt to stay down-to-earth but in a natural effort to stay true to self. J. Monday is definitely one of those emcees.

Also known as The Capital Kid, this Harrisburg, PA-native’s music is comprised of real life situations and true stories that can only be accounted for through prolific experience which is prominently displayed on his latest solid mixtape, The Sequel.

The self-proclaimed “King of the City”, he believes the best artist is an artist who can connect with listeners through inevitable experiences this life brings. With that in mind, Monday spits lyrical content that everyday people can relate and heed to while keeping the true essence of Hip-Hop alive.

MP3: Von Pea - "Good Life" + Album Release

Pea's Gotta Have It Drops Today Along With New Single

The Song:

With Von Pea's debut solo record, Pea's Gotta Have It, dropping today and the Audible Treats CMJ Showcase with legendary fellow New Yorker Black Sheep on Thursday, it's easy to see that Von's living the "Good Life," which is also his appropriately named newest single.

With a soulful beat reminiscient of J. Dilla, this chorusless banger rides upon a catchy vintage sample that croons "Don't give up the good life." The Tanya Morgan emcee showcases his skillful delivery and lets his personality shine through on the whole track. Some of the lyrics come directly from the writings of the rapper's high school journal and include sentiments that have taken on a different tone as time has passed. "The track is based on the idea that I'd be 'the man' by 22 and get the girls I wanted at the time (I decided to keep the real names of the girls from back then)," says Von. "These aspirations seem so silly looking back at them and knowing how serious I was." Even if Von Pea's priorities have changed, it's safe to say that this same seriousness has carried over, only to musicianship.

The Background:

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Von Pea has been emceeing since 1991 and producing since 2000. Initially attracted to hip-hop by the likes of Another Bad Creation and many other young rappers that were near his own age, Von would eventually shift his interest to those who would become his strongest influences – A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, and Biggie. In 2002 Von Pea began an alliance with the original members of North Carolina rap group Little Brother (Phonte, Rapper Big Pooh, and 9th Wonder) which lead him to being featured on such projects as Phonte and Nicolay’s Foreign Exchange Connected album (“Von Sees”), and Little Brother’s The Minstrel Show (“Cheatin” interlude). In addition to his group’s music, Von has released acclaimed projects such as 2003’s“Custom Fitted, 2007’s Grand Vonye, and his late 2007 remix project American Angster which has been considered one of the best of the Jay Z remix albums. Von Pea is also a member of the rap group Tanya Morgan. Von Pea's latest solo album, Pea's Gotta Have it, is available now.
