Featured Artist: 4th Avenue Jones

Peace and blessings,

This time around, I have to rep for the west coast. Most of you may have heard of Ahmad from his cut "back in the day," which came out back in the day (around the mid 90s). He's since then got together with some talented musicians (including his wife Tina, which is a dope female lyricist). The group got their name from 4th avenue and Jefferson st. in Los Angeles, California. The name of their most recent album is called "Stereo: the evolution of hiphoprocksoul." The name speaks for itself, as the album is a great blend of various musical genres. The common denominators that unite these genres, and what makes this album a must-cop, are creativity, group cohesion, Jesus Christ, and social justice. Now if that's not recipe for a great album, then I don't know what it is. But don't just take my word for it, take a listen and holla back!

Have a blessed weekend, enjoy the soulf food, and speekonit...
