While hip-hop is certainly alive and kicking, it’s undeniable that the genre’s gone through changes over the years. On unreleased cut The Day the Music Died, J the S laments the corporate, homogenized state of the industry, and pledges to keep his vision of “real hip-hop” alive as long as he lives. Joining him over Blaze P.‘s pensive production, Michael Franco provides the hook. While this joint won’t be featured on the project, those who like what they’re hearing owe it to themselves to check out debut studio album, The Last Days, when it hits stores and online retailers in the near future.
