Time for another tribute mixx for one of my favorite R&B artist, and his name is Jon B. Putting it simply, the boy is BAD! Any true soul music lover is a fan of this guy, and if not they should be. His music is timeless. Jon has evolved as an artist over the years of his lengthy career, but he hasn't lost that signature musical flavor that his loyal fans cherish. That is what separates him from other vanilla soul crooners like Robin Thicke, Remy Shand, Mayer Hawthorne and Miles Bonny.

Earlier this year I saw Jon B perform live at a local venue, and he gave us a nice show! He sang all of his hits, which was great! The most amazing part of his set was that he handled all of the instrumentation and vocals by himself. No band or back-up singers anywhere, plus he ended his performance with a dope drum solo. There is nothing like the sound of live music. It's nice to see a music artist with real stage presence, so when Mr. B comes to your city make sure you support him. Jon's new album "Comfortable Swagg" is scheduled to drop in early November...

Now, put ears on this mixx. These are some of my favorite tracks by Jon B, with a some rare remixes and unreleased joints as well. Enjoy!

Hip-Hop is back in your web-space! As I've been saying for several years now, I stay on the underground when looking for quality hip-hop music. Undiscovered talents remain hungry looking for their opportunity to shine for the masses, which usually generates creativity. No big budgets, videos, radio airplay or label deals for many of my favorite musical artists, but they still remain true to their craft. I continue to use my web presence to showcase these individuals and groups. This mixx is also showing love to some of my local comrads representing the hip-hop scene here in Michigan. This joint is raw, real and a head-bobbing experience for hip-hop fans...ENJOY!
