One thing I have found in my progress towards writing about music is the growth in cities scenes over the years. Growing up in St. Louis I saw all types of artists’ capture different sounds and create new waves for the city. An artist that I’ve written about previously and has stood out amongst most is rapper J-Hop. The Lou based artist has helped contribute to the sound of the city in projects Pelican Bay EP and his newest release, August. The three song tape features his hit single “Woah Now!” along with lyric heavy jazz jams “Watussy” and “Himalayas”. Give this project a stream and tell me what you think about the direction 314 music is going in!
