Jon Hope - Unplugged ft. Reks

Download: Jon Hope - Unplugged ft. Reks

This is off Jon Hope's new EP, Words From A Fairview, out now. The EP itself shows Jon has potential but this track here is the only joint where I feel he really shows what he's capable of. For those who haven't heard of Jon Hope before i'd compare him to J.Cole stylistically (admittedly, on the EP's other tracks the similarities are more apparent) but less polished and 'commercial'. In brief though he has a great flow, decent rhyme schemes and is a reasonable lyricist with the ability to cover a wide variety of topics.
'Is it all by design? Consider me a skeptic
journalism tainted, poison is accepted
carefully protected, to hell with our welfare
richest of the world with the poorest of the health care'
Rating: 8/10
