MP3: J. Pinder - "Upside Down" from "Code Red 2.0"

Yesterday, RCRD LBL premiered the bonus cut, "Upside Down", off of J. Pinder's Code Red 2.0 and we couldn't agree more with what they had to say: "Mellow hip-hop that goes for poignancy over power tripping (and succeeds), Pinder's well-crafted lyricism is on fine display in 'Upside Down'." J. Pinder is quickly making a name for himself with his honest delivery and intelligent poetry. Couple that with the stellar production on Code Red 2.0 and we have a star in the making! With a tour and festival appearances in the works for this summer, expect to hear a lot more from J. Pinder.

If you haven't heard the new album, want to talk with Mr. Pinder or need anything at all, don't hesitate to ask!

"Seattle, Washington is often overlooked as a hip-hop hub, but the city is teeming with talent that is slowly getting the respect it deserves. An emcee reppin’ the Northwest city that you should keep an eye on is J.Pinder." Okay Player

There are few things as captivating as the fire of a brilliantly talented and determined artist. Justin Allen Pinder, known by his widespread fanbase as J. Pinder, is blazing his trail to the spotlight. He first captured the attention of hip-hop fans with the release of his debut mixtape, Backpack Wax, produced by the legendary Vitamin D and nabbed the attention of national audiences on his guest mc spot on Jake One’s White Van Music (Rhymesayers Ent.) on the song “Big Homie Style”. Through strong, focused work and a constant effort to learn from local legends, J. Pinder quickly connected with some of the Pacific Northwest's most respected producers, such as DJ Vitamin D, Jake One, and Kuddie Fresh for his newest release, Code Red 2.0.

Lyrically, J. Pinder doesn't clutter his songs with wasted syllables. Instead, he earns respect of fans and press alike with his honest delivery, abstract poetry and intelligent poignancy! Couple that with supreme production and the tracks on Code Red 2.0 positively smoke... Guest appearances from Rapper Big Pooh (Little Brother), Toki Wright (Rhymesayers), and Guilty Simpson (Stones Throw) add evidence how far and wide his name is becoming recognized in hip hop circles.

His newest songs waiver from the raw, honesty of "Three Words", to the mellow-vibed echoing sample of "Upside Down" straight through to the sheer, bold ambition of "Go Far". Every last song is rife with J. Pinder's genius ability to imbue everything he touches with genuine personality and his lean, less-is-more take on lyricism. Code Red 2.0, presented by The Hall of Justus and The Arc Mg, officially sets a new high-water mark for J. Pinder!
