J Rawls – The Hip-Hop Affect Instrumentals (MP3)


J Rawls helped launch the independent Hip-Hop explosion of the late 90s by producing “Brown Skin Lady” from Mos Def and Talib Kweli’s seminal album as Black Star, and went on to anchor acclaimed duo Lone Catalysts. He recently returned with his first solo hip-hop album in a decade, featuring appearances from several underground heavyweights. Born out of a dialog with his son, The Hip Hop Affect explores Rawls’ personal journey from Ohio to cities all over the world, as well as Hip-Hop’s journey from block parties to MTV to total ubiquity. This instrumental version includes every beat from the album.
