Jonwayne Teams Up With Scoop DeVille on ‘The Come Up, Pt. 1′
Rapper-producer Jonwayne is trying to make a name for himself with his interesting rhymes and beat-making skills. The SoCal native makes a grand introduction with the head-nodding track 'The Come Up, Pt. 1' featuring Scoop DeVille.
Jonwayne garnered some buzz with his 2011 instrumental album 'Bowser,' but it was his skills as a MC that caught the attention of Peanut Butter Wolf, who signed him to his indie label, Stones Throw.
For those who don’t know, Scoop DeVille is among the producers who provided the perfect instrumentals for Kendrick Lamar’s vivid rhymes on 'good kid, m.A.A.d. city.' DeVille produced the rap ballad 'Poetic Justice' featuring Drake and the street banger 'The Recipe' featuring Dr. Dre.
On the 'The Come Up, Part. 1,' the two team up to reflect on their earliest hip-hop memories. For Jonwayne, growing up in a small community, he listened to rap from artists on both the East and West Coasts.
"The East Coast held it down for me lyrically / The West Coast spiritually / Feeling the rhythm kept me together / Because my friends are hard to find with so many enemies / My memories were breaking around me like winter leagues," he recalls.
Meanwhile, when DeVille was 15 years old, he was making money selling beats and scooping up all the fine honeys at his high school.
"Making moves like a grown man wish he could / While you let your time fly by I was living good / Braided up / Hundred stacks, paper cuts / Baby girl’s a— so fat she’s about to give up," he raps.
Get familiar with Jonwayne. The rapper-producer is bringing some lyrical heat with his new project, 'Rap Album One,' which hits stores Oct. 29.
