Tone Tone ft. Gorilla Zoe - Jockin’

Tags: Tone Tone
Featuring:
Producer:
Tone Tone and Ruda [for D.B.F. Prod]
Album:
D-Boy Fresh

Detroit’s hip-hop acts have famously fit into various subcategories of rap, from the acid sound of the early 90’s to the unconventionality of Slum Village and Eminem.  With that said, rapper Tone Tone’s Midwest swag is like nothing ever heard of out of Motown.  Tone’s influences include the well-known styles of Southern A-listers B.G., Bun B and Jazze Pha.  His latest single, Jockin’, self-produced with assistance from Ruda of D.B.F. Productions, is a synthesizer-orchestrated, Freebase-esque platform for the D-Boy to spit his game.  It reveals a fierce mixture of Detroit players’ swagger and the crunk-clubbability of the Dirty South.  Atlanta’s Gorilla Zoe lends his observations as a Hood Figga whose style is jocked for the hook.  Tone’s new album, D-Boy Fresh, is due out on August 28.
