Emcees that rhyme about an addiction to the ‘street life’ are usually products of their own lyrically-explained environment. Unfortunately, record label head honchos feed off of their artist’s strife and this tends to lead them toward a false bravado.  Jon Hope sees this vicious cycle and on his new song, The Rush, he’s callin’ ‘em all out. Appealing to both the rappers who feel that they must ball out and the label employees that sign them, the Rhode Islander’s new record packs plenty of purpose.  Over a slick production from St. Patrick Productions, the enlightened emcee drops intense lyrical messages: “you dumb bastards, part of my frustration/ I used to be like you, mistaken, now I awaken a street icon/ I am Jon, I fear no man but God.” Although there is no release date as of yet, Hope’s Some Kind of Wonderful EP will be in stores later this year.
