DJ JS-1 / Jeru The Damaja / ToneDeff

"No One Cares / Ground Original 3" is the title of Rocksteady's own DJ JS-One's latest album that's out now on CD and hopefully vinyl in a minute. The LP is stacked with legendary guests including KRS-One, Razhel, Sadat X, AG, OC, Craig G, Sick Jacken and many others. One of the most interesting features is the return of hip-hop's consciousness, Jeru The Damaja. I've always been a fan of this man's style and haven't heard anything new from him since... I don't even know, might have been on Large Pro's last solo album? However that may be, Jeru and JS-One bumps head on the dark, sinister "Science" that's obviously inspired by the MCs early work with DJ Premier on the classic "The Sun Rises in the East". You can check out the sickness for yourself at the bottom of this post.

The first official single from the project is called "Last to Know" and features the talented ToneDeff spitting rapid fire over neck-breaking drums and chopped up soul samples. Sounds like a classic recipe for hot wax, right? Yeah, well you got that right! The video for it has been out for some time now but since I forgot to post it when it first dropped, I'm taking the opportunity to do so now instead. 

Last, but not least, I also must say that I'm glad that the Roc Raida tribute, "Life", by OC finally found a home since it's way too dope a track to just let it slip through the cracks. Support real hip-hop and pick up the album from UGHHAmazon or wherever you feel comfortable doing your shopping.
