So it turns out, Jonwayne didn’t actually retire.
Now while we weren’t confident the Cali rapper/producer actually hung up the MPC and microphone for good, he’s been pretty quiet since releasing his last EP a year ago. But today, Jon returns with “Wonka” — a bombastic return from slumber.
“I’m smarter than your average/thought you’d know that by now/I’m not afraid of you motherfucker/don’t you know that by now?” Jonwayne raps, reminding the world that he is in fact back after a year of dormancy and, according to Jon, two years of not caring about making music. But damnit, I’m glad he cares again.
Stream “Wonka,” which came along with an acapella and instrumental version, below.
