Mike Schpitz a.k.a. Love Jones a.k.a. the Pride of Kansas hip-hop may not be your typical rapper, but DJBooth isn’t your typical site, so Schpitz’s always dope, often off-kilter and occasionally hilarious rhyme style (see his last track The Get-Up (Remix)) has found a welcome home on our pages. On his latest track Hatin Again, Schpitz uses a soulful 9th Wonder beat for him and his fellow partners in rhyme Stik Figa and Adullescence (of The League of Ordinary Gentlemen) to smoothly flow over, with Schpitz rightfully taking the lyrical lead by issuing a preemptive strike against any potential haters: “I flow effortlessly…My wrist chilled, my chain cold, so I’m always playin it cool like Wayne Gretzky.” Because the only thing worse than being hated on once is when haters come back for seconds. Hatin Again is a highlight from Mike Schpitz’s upcoming tribute project to uber-producer 9th Wonder titled Love Potion Number 9th: The Hangover, due to drop November 18, on RefinedHype.com.
