This guy Jon Connor can rap. No bullsh*t. Since getting up on buddy’s music last year, I can honestly say that I have been impressed for the most part. It’s a damn shame I won’t be able to get to see him perform next week at SXSW. Michigan’s own is already apart of several showcases down there and from what I hear his live show isn’t bad at all.
Connor recorded a freestyle over John Legend’s “Another Again” and sent it to DJ Quiz to be used for his SXSW/Cornerstone mixtape. Seeing as how I’m a fan of lyrics and reading them while the song is playing (don’t ask), take these on. Once he really gets a feel for the beat and becomes comfortable, that’s when the show really gets started.
I’m on my job like I’m trying to get that promotionI do this for the MC’s who never got that promotionCausing commotion make hits till my knuckles swollen‘Til my fingers is broken nigga picture me rollingSweetie I am a star let’s get lost in the constellationsI tell ‘em that talk is cheap and he all about conversationlook we trying to win we dont settle for nominationsNow I’m getting blow jobs like I filled out a applicationGood at her occupation, yall a abominationShit, this is a war yall gon feel like I bombed the nation
Look for Jon Connor in this month’s Straight Stuntin’ magazine in their “Potential Threat” section and Hip Hop Weekly’s “Next To Blow.”
