It’s hard to believe that St. Louis rapper J-Kwon first arrived on the scene four years ago. His debut single, Tipsy, invaded every club and house party across the world and helped the Missouri-native reach gold certification on his introductory album, Hood Hop. Following his initial success, Kwon revealed to DJBooth that he received a label deal for Hood Hop Entertainment through his parent company, Jive Records. Although shortly after releasing a collaboration with MTV’s Andy Milonakis, and receiving little promotion towards his sophomore album Louisville Slugger, J-Kwon and his project were dropped from the label. Now independent and ready to make ’08 his return into the game, we are treated to the radio-ready Boo Boo (Holding Me Down), performed, composed and produced all by the man himself. Does J-Kwon have what it takes to start the climb back towards to top of the mountain?
