Ladies and gentlemen, Rich Jones is back on his rap shit. The Chicago native and Lyrical Lemonade favorite is back with a brand new EP titled “Light Work” and I am honored to premiere this fantastic tape on our platform. When I say that he’s back on his rap shit that’s certainly not to knock his stellar and unmatched vocal & singing abilities, but man it’s so refreshing to hear him just casually spit memorable verses one after another. After my first listen through this tape I immediately wondered who put together these ear grabbing instrumentals, and I was soon pleased to find that Rich paired with lauded producer Vapor Eyes, a prominent member of the Push Beats collective to make this one possible. I have been a fan of Rich Jones for a few years now but I must say that this is by far some of his best work, there was so many stand out moments of soothing melodies, perfectly executed flows and flat out euphoria, that feeling that only a certain type of great music can bring out. A couple of my favorite moments on this project were the flows he caught in “Outroglide”, as well as the melody and piercing bars he was spitting on “Duffle”. The features on this tape pushed it over the top into that next level, so shout out to Show You Suck, Sports Boyfriend and last but not least, Kosha Dillz. Stream this brand new project below and let me know what you think about it in the comments section!
