Sixteen years strong, KJ-52's career laid the groundwork for artists across the CHH industry. More importantly, Jonah Sorrentino assisted fans worldwide with the crossover from mainstream (secular) to faith-based hip-hop. Along with the likes of The Cross Movement, Mars Ill, The Grits, Gospel Gangstaz, T-Bone and Tunnel Rats, KJ-52 is respected as one of the pioneers and icons of the industry. Embarking on his 11th studio release, subject matter and production seems to only continue to be on the rise.
KJ-52 had this to say about his new independent journey: "The grind of life can really wear on your creativity, but this newest project that I've been working on could be the most powerful stuff I've done since the beginning of my career. The new record was inspired by my real name and reflects the transparency of how I've been feeling in my current writing."
Those fans who pledge to the efforts of this independent release will be gifted with random musical treasures throughout the campaign. So far, KJ-52 has made available the following free downloads:
1) "Stump the Rapper" freestyle Part 1
2) "Swagzilla" featuring Marty from Social Club Misfits
3) "What If (Demo)" featuring Shai Linne from Lamp Mode Recordings
4) "Fight Music" (unreleased DJ Official remix) featuring Lecrae and Propaganda
Another "gift" will be the release of Jonah on Christmas Day to pledgers. Otherwise, a to-be-announced date in 2017 will make the project available to the masses. The proposed track listing is shown below:
1) "Hold On" featuring Curt Anderson
2) "The Get Down, Get Down"
3) "More of You, Less of Me" featuring Whosoever South
4) "Best Day Ever" featuring Chris August and Mr. Talkbox
