J-Dawg’s short verse on “Comin’ From” stands out in my mind on last week’s Big K.R.I.T. mixtape, Last King 2. His distinctive vocals immediately grabbed my attention and his solid flow backed up my initial reaction. As a fan of hoarse vocalists, in nearly every context from Charley Patton to Hot Water Music, J-Dawg is right up my alley. Hopefully, you share my enthusiasm. Check out the awesome homemade-looking video for “Ride on 4’s” below. And download his excellent mixtape God Fearing Gansta (2010) here.
