Jonah Cruzz is dope as hell.
Wait, let me back up a minute. Last night while trying to catch the elusive (O) in unread messages, I came across a link to Jonah’s “Saturday Morning.” (Thanks Propane!) I pressed play and before the first verse even started, I was a fan. Westwood’s slow-rolling production and Jonah’s easy going hook about his early weekend routine was enough. But then the :46 mark arrives and you’re presented with an unexpected delivery that finds the Atlanta newcomer picking up the pace with his confident and in-the-pocket flow. I was sold off the first song.
Truthfully, Jonah should have already been on the site with his first release, the DJ Toomp-produced “Cocky,” but it slipped through the cracks. That won’t happen again though. I’m fully awake and have my eyes peeled for his upcoming project, Ordinary Nigga.
Both are included below for your listening pleasure. Check them out and if you like what you hear, hit Jonah on Twitter with some comments.
Since the first two tracks were so good, I decided to do a little more digging and came up with this older gem, “Just Vibe” that was uploaded to a Soundcloud page over three years ago. Damn…
