With his gravelly, rumbling baritone and his ability to come up with allusions and analogies that are frighteningly surreal and yet visceral, Jonwayne has quickly become one of my favorite, contemporary emcees. His live set is stripped down, no-bullshit, straightforward hip-hop – generally, they’re just him spitting his lyrics with a sampler plugged into the house sound system. Check out this live footage of Jonwayne performing “The Come Up, Part 2” off his latest Stones Throw Records release, Rap Album One at the Low End Theory
