Jonwayne “Cassette 3: The Marion Morrison Mixtape”

Jonwayne releases his last mixtape in his cassette tape trilogy on Stones Throw, entitled "Cassette 3: The Marion Morrison Mixtape."

You just died and went to hip hop heaven. Jonwayne dropped his last mixtape from the Stones Throw cassette trilogy, Cassette 3: The Marion Morrison Mixtape. If you’re unfamiliar, Jonwayne is a Cali emcee/producer who’s probably been off your radar, that is until now. The Stones Throw spitter’s latest effort features tracks with Captain Murphy, Jeremiah Jae, Zeroh and Oliver the 2nd. Stones Throw Art Director Jeff Jank handled cover art for this tape, which resembles that 1st generation iPod Nano. Side note: Jank is featured in Mass Appeal’s Issue #53.

From top to bottom, this tape is straight raw, overflowing with masterful bars that might fly over heads, and eargasmic beats that would have Dilla nodding in his grave (see: “And Bullshit”). Wayne dabbles between the eras of hip hop, taking you back to the essence of the golden age and keeping it relevant with his version of Pusha T’s “Number on the Boards.” Unlike his previous mixtapes in the series, The Marion Morrison Mixtape will be available for free digital download, but you can purchase the cassette as well via Stones Throw. Jonwayne is truly a breath of fresh air to the game, don’t sleep!
