Jon Bellion.. what can I say that I haven't already about one of the most exciting names in music right now? We first sponsored and premiered his entire first album "The Seperation" which was given out as a free download and got us hooked on the talented multi-faceted artist capable of not only writing and singing, but also producing. Well today we get the next chapter in the artist's blossoming career with another entire new album "The Definition", somehow released as a free download once again.
We first got to sample "Munny Right", "Simple and Sweet" and "Carry Your Throne" which came along with some cinematic quality music videos bringing the songs to life. Today we get the rest of the 11 track album. We hear Jon successfully manage to blend an endless amount genres primarily focused around hip-hop and indie with some R&B tossed in the mix. Production on the release, done by Jon himself manages to fuse organic instruments and just the right amount of electronic influence. Every song couldn't be more different, with something to please almost everyone. It's really hard to believe this release is actually available for free, but it is, and is now available to grab through Jon's website here. Enjoy!
Also Jon is kicking off his first ever nationwide run of shows on The Defition Tour kicking off Oct 1st in Boston, MA. See the full dates and ticket info below.

After releasing his debut studio album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, Kendrick Lamar went from being a promising new rapper out of Compton to one of the most respected faces in hip-hop coached by Dr. Dre himself. Today we get the new single from Kendrick since his Grammy nominated album titled "i", which could be the first song from his forthcoming album. Packing an epic intro, instantly catchy guitar focused production and mixture of rapping some choruses and unreal verses. If this is a taste of what we can expect, his new record could potentially match or top m.a.a.d. city if that is even possible. Listen to this instant hit and be thankful that Kendrick is back. Enjoy!
