J-Kwon - 314

Man In Da Mirror

No musician wants to leave a label, and if they do they want it to be on their own terms.  In rapper J-Kwon‘s case however, getting dropped from Jive Records has been a blessing in disguise; his newfound independence will give the St. Louis-native a platform to take charge of his career.  To help complement the hit potential of Boo Boo (Holding Me Down), the 21-year old MC/label boss/songwriter/producer gives a shout out to his home city with the area code reppin’, 314.  Although his verses sound swagger-jacked from Lil’ Wayne, right down to the “ya dig’s,” Kwon shines on the production side and that should make 314 a sure-shot-spinner at the club.  It’s got to feel good not to need that fake ID anymore…
