ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jav aka Rapmononov is the Lower East Side\'s solution to Hip Hop Music today. AKA Rapmononov because Jav is the prolific Lyricist and incredible composer of hard stylish beats. Sun of a Gun is the deconstruction of \"street life\" the Mainstream has falsely glorified. After all the grind and time, Jav comes to you with an honest and genuine portrayal of his life experiences in a progressive manner. The album features other independent heavy weights like Skyzoo and Shabaam Sahdeeq, as well as guest production from the 2 Hungry Bros and Sonic Sum\'s (Def Jux)FRED ONES. For an innovative perspective of New York City and being a Puerto Rock living through the Crack & Heroine Era, and taking a stroll through the \"glamorous\" cocaine addicted nightlife, then Sun of a GUN is that album! It\'s his Debut album after impressive appearances on some of Raze\'s mixtapes, Respect the God\'s mixtapes, Creative Juices Mixtapes, and Deep and Ben Boogie\'s Frequent Flyers.

It\'s been too long since I\'ve seen an MC rocking a fresh pair of Cazals on the cover of an album. While the look might be an unabashed nod to the old school, the music from this New York producer/lyricist isn\'t the least bit concerned with looking back. His self-described \"progressive street sound\" is \"the deconstruction of \'street life\' the mainstream has falsely glorified.\" If you think this sounds like a perspective modern hip hop is in desperate need of, you won\'t have a problem embracing the thick beats and intelligent flows that make up the 15 tracks on this one. Producing the majority of the beats himself, he does a great job of giving the music an overall sense of cohesiveness, without repeating structures or falling back on similar sounds from track to track. His lyrics and vocal style keep it up, adjusting to the feel and subject matter of each cut. \"Watch Out\" is thick and slightly bouncing, with a dense street vibe that is executed flawlessly. \"Kidz\" is filled with compassion and confessions of uncertainly, a pause for pondering that comes across as sincere and thoughtful. Another high point is \"Fame,\" a narrative tale that takes on a \"what if?\" point of view and really explores the actualities of this goal so many people strive for. The song, along with the rest of the record, is conscious and pragmatic, without sacrificing any of the authenticity you\'d expect from an East Coast MC who knows his craft so well. And it makes for some great music.
