“I Am Where The Music Is” featuring LD & Ariano
The First Single off the new EP “Love is On Hiatus” executive produced by Aceyalone.
release date 2/16/2011
Trav’s Take: I was pleasantly surprised by this jam. Another sign female emcees are on the rise, JNatural reminds a little of DoomTree’s Dessa as far as her flow and delivery and is backed with a sing-song chorus by slept on Cali emcee, Ariano. I played this three or four times in a row after first hearing it in my inbox. Backed by legendary emcee, Aceyalone, I’m curious to see how this does.
JNaturaL is a Filipino American born emcee/vocalist with a presence and vocal power that has coined the term which many have used to describe her “looking pretty, spitting ugly”. This “sexy tomboy firecracker” emerged on the indie hip hop scene in early 2000. In 2007 fate crossed her path with long time hip hop mentor Aceyalone, who brought her to the Project Blowed Studios as his protege. Since then she has toured Europe and the US independently receiving acclaim from Las Vegas to Berlin and everywhere in between. After recording all of 2009 for her new concept album Love is on Hiatus, executively produced by Aceyalone, she is poised to have a busy 2010 touring the States & Europe in support of the upcoming lp. Be on the look out for the precursor to the album, the Dopamine mixtape (mixed by LD Technicali).
