- Album: The Johnny Hathaway EP
I'll keep it real: when I hear the phrase “Capitol of the World,” Houston isn't the first city to spring to mind. Be that as it may, I'm not about to argue with a record as dope as the latest effort from John Dew. His first feature on our pages since August 2011's What's Stopping You, this joint finds the rapper/producer showcasing his talents on both sides of the boards; over his and Chris Rockaway's buoyant samples and bombastic synth-brass, the artist showcases mic skills so impressive he has to invent a word just to describe them: “My spit game f**king amounding / That's 'f**king amazing' mixed up wit 'astounding.'” Complete with guest bars by fellow Houstonian Dustin-Prestige and B.K. phenom Skyzoo, Capitol is the lead single off forthcoming EP Donny Hathaway. The project currently lacks a drop date, but we'll keep you supplied with further details and song releases as they emerge.
