Who is J. Rawls: The Preceptor Of Hip-Hop and Jazz Tango
What is hip-hop, jazz, and melody? Hip-hop is a form of musical expression and artistic culture that originated in the African-American community in the late 1970’s. Now Jazz on the other hand is a musical style that originated in the beginning of the 20th century also in the African-American community using many instruments to form one melody.
Being a connoisseur of good music assists the realization that there is nothing better than the artistic expression taking control of your thoughts, imagination, and mood. Jazz and hip hop together are like poetry in motion. Jason Rawls (J. Rawls) is an American hip-hop, soul, and neo-soul producer whose work crosses over into jazz. Rawls has worked with Slum Village and 9th Wonder in collaborative projects. He is best known for his production work with the legendary hip-hop duo Black Star, which consisted of two of hip-hops most legendary MC’s; Mos Def and Talib Kweli.
The gentleman needs to have smooth music in the collection in order to relax and Rawls does just that, with albums such as “The Liquid Crystal Project” (I & II) and the newest release “The Hip-Hop Affect” along with 10 albums to date there is plenty of soul to be spread around.
J. Rawls is apart of an independent label called POLAR. Musicians and producers who are a part of independent, or “indy” labels have their own creative identity. Therefore, the music in which they make can be appreciated by the real lovers of the art form.
I recommend “The liquid crystal project” (I and II) with instrumentals such as “So fly” and “Tribute to Dilla”to set the tone and mood for the perfect, relaxing atmosphere.
