J'Von & Ackryte 'Aqua': New Hip Hop

One of hip hop's finest new producers reunites with one of hip hop's finest young lyricists

Recently, one of the illest beatmakers in the world reached out and blessed us with his latest collaborative album with one of hip hop's most exciting new voices.    

The beatmaker in question is Ackryte; the MC is J'Von. The project, 'AQUA', is ten tracks of absolute fire and is one of the best albums of the year.

J'VonIt takes a special kind of MC to be able to ride on top of Ackryte's swing-heavy soundboards: J'Von is just that kind of MC. 

It takes a special kind of beatmaker to be able to give J'Von's nimble lyricism the backing it deserves: Ackryte is just that kind of beatmaker.

J'Von spits thoughtful, intelligent, rewind-worthy bars; mixing the acrobatic approach of Pharoahe Monch and Eminem with a vocal tone akin to Talib Kweli.

Beat wise, Ackryte's signature sound of unqauntized boom bap and sad, soulful, skillfully fashioned samples perfectly matches J'Von's subject and style.

Along with 'Duende', by Jung Youth and Central Parks, 'AQUA' is great proof that the time-honoured hip hop tradition of the super-dope MC / producer combo is alive and very, very well.
