GENRE: HIP-HOP | NEW RELEASE: “JONES IN YA SPEAKER”
Georgia's Demun Jones is probably best known as the songwriting and singing replacement for Brooks Buford in the groundbreaking country and Southern rap duo Rehab. Born and raised in Jones County, which is located just north of Macon, Jones grew up absorbing all kinds of music, from country and Southern rock to Marvin Gaye and Motown, but it was discovering N.W.A. and rap when he was ten years old that really set him on his musical course. When Buford left Rehab, the other founding member, Danny Boone, kept the Rehab name and tabbed Jones to join him in a reconstituted version of the duo (which had actually grown into a quintet by this time), a spot Jones kept for the next ten years, contributing songs and vocals to 2005's Graffiti the World and 2010's Welcome Home.
The third solo album from Demun Jones, Jones In Ya Speaker, picks up where his other albums, Jones County and #BEAST left off. Jones shows his versatility with upbeat tracks, 'Paradise' and 'The Beard Song' and then taking, what sounds like, a haunting soundscape and making it a song about 'Feeling Good'. Demun Jones tops it off with a patriotic, almost Kid Rock'ish' anthem 'RedWhiteBlue' that reminds us, that even with current social and political tensions, that we are all still one team, equal and fortunate to live in the USA! Along with the collaborative masterpiece 'Campfire Cologne' featuring his close friend, Upchurch, this album is sure to push the boundaries of what is proving to be a budding genre that has no signs of easing up. Jones suggests " My albums are made to be turned up very loud, but I can't be responsible for speaker damage, hahaha". That's Jones In Ya Speaker Boy Ya Better Turn It Up!!
