EDITORS’ NOTES

A Bronx emcee best known for his many collaborations with North Carolina VIPs Little Brother, Foreign Exchange, and The Away Team, Chaundon has been putting in work for over a decade now and is revered for his swift flow, comical wordplay, and distinct New York swagger. The Jammington is his fourth album (following Carnage, Chaundon Presents...Baby Making Music, and No Excuses), and it finds him sounding stronger than ever. The short but sweet 10-track project gives fans everything they'd hope for in a compact 30-minute package, with slick punchlines and chuckle-inducing storytelling. He sounds especially dope on the super-soulful "Hindsight," the smooth-talking ladies' jam "Mandatory," and the big-girl anthem "BBW" (which revisits the classic "It Takes Two" beat). He also addresses the breakup of his old crew Justus League over sweeping strings on "Loyalty Is Royalty" and examines the gap between rich and poor on the spooky, flute-laced "Prosperity."

About Chaundon

Part of Little Brother's larger North Carolina collective the Justus League, Chaundon was born in the Bronx and first started to pen rhymes when he was 13 years old. He came into contact with each of the members of Little Brother in 1999 after transferring to North Carolina Central University in Durham from Barber Scotia College in Concord, NC. The hardcore lyricist played an integral role in building the Justus League as a credible source of hip-hop music in North Carolina; in particular, he discovered producer Khrysis, who has helped critically define the collective's sound along with 9th Wonder. In terms of promoting himself, his approach was very dogged. He extended himself all over campus, performing at shows, local clubs, and radio stations. That work ethic, of course, translated to recording and produced a number of mixtapes, including his first, Slow Leaks, in 2003. As he waited to put out his own full-length, the Durham-via-Bronx rapper made guest appearances on albums by his fellow League brethren, like Little Brother's controversial The Minstrel Show (2005) and L.E.G.A.C.Y.'s Project Mayhem (2005). Finally, Hall of Justus Music Group, Chaundon's label home, attained a distribution deal with Defend, which issued the MC's first proper LP, Carnage, in 2008. ~ Cyril Cordor
