Jonwayne (LA)
Rap Album Two out Feb 2017

«Though the subject matter of his latest album is heavier than ever, Rap Album Two isn’t overly morose. There’s much beauty to be found in its brutal honesty, and even more in the redemption he finds embracing that.» — MASS APPEAL

Jonwayne came onto the Los Angeles music scene by way of the east Los Angeles club Low End Theory circa 2008-09, then emerging as the epicenter of a new generation of hip-hop beat makers: Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, Nosaj Thing, Kutmah, Daedelus. Fresh out of high school, Jonwayne jumped in with homemade rap mixtapes and immersed himself in the scene. «It felt like a golden age,» he says, «it was very inspiring.»

He first became known as a producer, releasing the instrumental albumBowser (2011) – but it was his over-sized skill on the mic that caught the attention of Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf, who signed him to record an album as an MC.

As Jon set to work on his debut rap project, he let his presence be known with a series of tapes: Cassette, Cassette 2 and Cassette 3. Each was unplanned, the releases prompted by Jon’s prolific output. And by this time even lawyers for the tobacco conglomerate Phillip Morris took notice of Jonwayne, serving him with a cease & desist notice for a cassette that looked like a pack of Marlboros.
