Fresh off releasing his debut EP in June, Papua New Guinean rapper Jon is about to unveil the new video for title track H22.
The track feels like a throw back to classic hip-hop, with solid beats and basslines, and a catchy guitar lick to back him up, Jon relies on his inventive musings and catchy flow with a pinch of good humour for good measure to lift the song. It’s a perfect insight into Jon’s headspace. The video sees Jon playing a round of golf, throwing clubs to his bearded caddy and dancing with a boombox on the well-kept putting greens.
It’s clear throughout the progression of his debut four track EP that Jon isn’t shy about taking risks to create a sonic landscape that propels the listener straight into the heart of his world. He isn’t afraid to speak real truths, his own and those of the everyman, which are spun together with sleek beats, touches of brass and good old 80’s funk to create Jon’s own brand of hip hop for a new generation.
