Jon Hope ft. LJC - The Bottle

Posted 5 years ago
Tags: Jon Hope
Producer:
LJC
Album:
Work in Progress

Over the past few years hip-hop has slowly moved from a music that celebrates partying to one that celebrates liver-destroying binge drinking. It’s no longer enough to simply pop bottles, you have to do Shots with LMFAO and get slizzered like Three 6 until you can’t remember your name. Well, as always, you can count on DJBooth Freestyle alum Jon Hope to set the record straight. Just like he did on previous feature Bills, Hope reveals the true consequences and complexities of reaching for liquid courage when times gets hard. While LJC pulls double duty as both a smooth hookman and creator of a simultaneously light and dark beat, lyrically Hope takes the (quasi?) autobiographical approach, telling the first person story of a man left with nothing and no one to turn to, except that always reliable bottle. DJs, feel free to play this one back to back with Fly Like a G6. Fittingly, Hope’s upcoming album Work in Progress is under construction as we speak. Keep it locked for further details.
