The dynamic duo of MC J'Von and beatmaker Ackryte combine yet again on this double whammy of jazzy post-hip hop beats and acrobatic lyricism.
Stylistically, J'Von comes across as a mix of Talib Kweli, Rawkus era Eminem and Jay Z on 'Hovi Baby' on both bangers. Thematically, 'UnAscertained', a tale of heartache loaded with clever innuendo, reminds me of this classic from last year.
Regular readers will probably already know how I feel about Ackryte's brand of wonky, soulful, jazzy psychedelic hip hop (spoiler alert: I love it).
I need a full-length collabo' album from these two talents, soon.
