Currently, as I write this, there is a torrential downpour outside, but all I can see are Blue Skies thanks to an impressive new release from J.Nolan. The song is the second release from the Connecticut emcee’s #DistinguishYourself campaign, which is an ultra-fitting title considering the track’s contents. Nolan’s flow might have an edge to it, but he sounds right at home over the elegant boardwork of producer Tuelv. As the jazzy beat strolls across the clear skies, Nolan wrestles with making an honest living in a world “colder than a bald spot” when selling your soul is an easier, more profitable way to go. The #DistinguishYourself campaign serves as a lead up to the release of the artist’s forthcoming project, Distinction. While no release date is officially set, expect Nolan’s debut single, Fortified MC, to be released very soon.
