Listen: Jonwayne—”Reflection”

Jonwayne just dropped his third mixtape in a series titled Marrion Morrison via Stones Throw Records and he’s already coming right back at you with a lead-single to his forthcoming debut album appropriately titled Rap Album One. The track, titled “Reflection,” is something drastically different from his previous work and significantly better. In it manifests Jonwayne’s gifted ability to vocalize deep, introspective sentimentalism with unparalleled fashion. He shows a voracious appetite for verse and a superior command over meter and rhyme. A favorite lyric of mine is the following: “I’m a hundred years of torture with a bullet in his hand.” With so much talent, it’s no wonder that he’s signed to Stones Throw and has been receiving tons of support from them in promoting his work. Jonwayne is an artist to definitely keep on your radar until the release of his album on October 29. Disregard the strange cover art for the single which presents itself as a direct contradiction to the contemplative beat and raps of the artist and take a listen to “Reflection” below.
