Originally from Boston (where she attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music) and now based in Atlanta, Lyric Jones is new on the hip-hop scene. But she's already impressing heads with her lyrical dexterity and musical prowess: she can rap, sing, and play the drums. Jones St. LP is her first album, and it’s a strong one. Influenced by the likes of Jean Grae, MC Lyte, Bahamadia, and Stahhr, she rejects the usual female rap stereotypes (bedroom skills and brand-name dropping) in lieu of straight lyrics reflecting on her personal struggles and triumphs both inside and outside the music game. The production's outstanding: a soulful blend of choice samples and chunky drums, perfectly suited to her top-shelf verbalism. There's really not a weak song here, though "23rd St.," "Appetizer Menu," "Loss on Repeat" (with Esperanza Spalding), "Downtime" (featuring J-Live), and "Sha Dop" are especially fresh. Her singing skills are showcased on "Middle of the World" and "Tin Can," showing a vocal versatility that's hard to believe.
Strong Female Rapper
It's refreshing to see a strong female rapper emerge on the scene with such talent and force. With influences in Soul, R&B, Jazz, and Hip Hop, Jones St. has established Lyric Jones as one of the top female artists in the business. From the calming beats of "Loss on Repeat," with Grammy award winning artist Esperanza Spalding to the lyrically blazing "Gotta Go," Jones St. LP has
something for every music lover. If you buy one album this year, this is it.
True Representation of the Atlanta Underground Scene
Jones Street is great!!!! I'm buying one. The beats are stoooopid, I was sooo mad when 23rd St. stopped on the preview, The SCRATCHES!!!! Thanks for being a great artist, more than that though, thanks for being a hustler. I'm certain you won't remain "Underground" for long.
As you Journey through life... Journey Brave.
One time for the ladies!
It's so refreshing to have an emcee like Lyric arise into the hip hop world. Her flows, production, features.. just everything about this album is 200% greatness. I applaud her for this project. KEEP IT COMING!!
