Livin Proof (Rebooth LP) by BoneBreaker Jones
Okay, deep breaths. Twenty years is a long enough wait. So here goes: I have kept word of this personal project I have been working on from pretty much EVERYBODY (JayForce and my Beatz & Lyrics fam included); partly because it means so much to me but also because timing is crucial...for most everything!
This a reboot (e.g. redo, redux, reffixx mixtape... I actually call it a Rebooth) of the Group Home classic "Livin' Proof." Ever since this came out about 20 years ago, I have wondered what my favorite DJ Premier beats off that album would sound under verses from emcees I know and admire. Well, viola! Check out this work of love (TOTALLY FREE, of course) - The "Livin Proof" (Rebooth LP) from BoneBreaker Studios, featuring various artists over the original music by DJ Premier.
This post is for the title track, from BoneBreaker Jones. His music video for this is coming next week. Prepare your hearts and minds to partake, as the reverend would say.
Check it out. Download and pass it on if you like. I LOVE IT (but then again, I've got 20 years of bias built up).
(What's crazy is... several artists on the project - including the homie SkyBlew - were barely on the planet when this Group Home dropped the original plate!)

BoneBreaker Jones hails from Douglasville, Georgia (by way of Tuskegee, Alabama, USA). This is him going in over a Primo beat. Good mix of 9-to-5 griping to troubles on the grind to some solid 'beast mode' braggadocio. BoneBreaker is an emcee and entrepreneur who put up studio time and rhymes for this Rebooth at no charge (doesn't hurt that I have known him all his life *wink*).

Unity Sound was formed in 1996 in Tampa, Florida; before migrating to Atlanta, Georgia, where they opened a record shop in 1997. Making and placing mix CDs worldwide, traveling the world (Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, across the US)... that's how they became known. Now, Unity Sound is based in Yokohama, Japan with Owner / MC / Selector Crossfire and MC / Selector Bigga-C. You can learn more about the Sound at their website (here). But learn about (and jam to) their beautiful blended sounds by steaming their "Royal Warriors 5" (Culture Mix) above.
