Representing Chattanooga, Tennessee collective The Neighburrrhood, J.O. grabs frequent collaborator Eazy Steve to lend a hand dropping gems on the Harry Fraud produced “All I Know”. Make sure to keep an eye out for some dope new music soon from The Neighburrhood as well as a special appearance from the pair of J.O. and Eazy Steve on our upcoming World Wide mixtape.
With a somewhat eerie visual for the Zan Dretti produced “Even Step(v)hen“, Tennessee artist Eazy Steve relays the vibe of the song to the viewer and shows how alone Eazy can be at times, with only himself to talk to. With imagery that may be confused with scenes from a Stanley Kubrick film, director/producer/editor Christian Eaves projects a vehement view into Eazy Steve’s inner monologue.
A very talented artist, J.O. of the steam-gaining Neighburrrhood stands out on the double sided “The Letter/The Last Song”. From Chattanooga, J.O. breaks listeners off with a 2 for 1 that starts off as what struck me at first listen was something that would be more at home in an episode of Def Poetry jam than on the pages of NHWWW. J.O.’s sole description of the effort only states “Through pain, comes poetry,” and that is all that was needed. After “The Letter” concludes, “The Last Song” begins. J.O. switches from the intense spoken word backed by jazzy pianos to an equally stinging ballad of sorts. Truly a piece of art, “The Letter/The Last Song” is a beautiful, well orchestrated, attack that left me agonizing on the edge of my seat.
Brand new from one of NHWWW’s favorite artists Eazy Steve, the highly personal “Even Step(v)hen” features production from Neighburrrhood team member Zan Dretti. Fresh off of an incredible release with Simply Steve, as well as two appearances on our top ten posts of 2013, this newly minted year is going to be very interesting for the Chattanooga MC. Keep an eye out for new music from The Neighburrrhood collective, including appearances on the upcoming World Wide mixtape.
