DJ JS-1 ft. O.C.-Life...Word


I’ve picked this project up for a listen literally just now and find myself extremely impressed not only with the star-studded lineup across 22 tracks but also the quality of beats on display here. Features include a range of artists from old-schoolers such as Krs One, Kool G Rap, Jeru The Damaja, Craig G, and O.C. to underground heavy hitters Ill Bill, Tonedeff and Joell Ortiz. This joint here is a heartfelt dedication to a fallen soldier with O.C. on the rhymes. Top stuff.

Hit the jump for the full tracklist of DJ JS-1′s impressive No One Cares.

DJ JS-1 ft. Tonedeff-Last To Know [Video]

“Dropping the first music video from his soon-to-be released and highly anticipated album, No One Cares, DJ JS-1 continues to showcases his finely tuned production and scratching skills with “Last To Know.” At its core, this track has JS-1 venting deep frustrations about trying to discern what’s best for his career, considering there is always a plethora of figures who are ready to shell out advice: armchair A&R’s, well-meaning friends, and plenty of over-eager fans among them. Keeping things light, though, the music video for the track, is a humorous one, with JS-1 flexing his dark comedy skills alongside director Adam Buncher and the track’s feature artist, Tonedeff.”

Pfffft, when’s Tonedeff going to follow up his 2005 masterpiece Archetype?
