Remember when lyrics and hard beats mattered in Hip Hop? You’ve probably had that conversation with your friends before, while you’re looking at your radio hearing that mumble rap. You need something to cleanse those ear pallet with some Ron Jon Bovi.
No I didn’t misspell Jon Bon Jovi. This is Ron Jon Bovi, a group composed of Detroit’s own Phat Kat and Oakland’s Casual of the Hieroglyphics. The two go all the way back to ’94, when Casual Dropped “That’s How it is”. The two linked up, after Phat Kat found some jewlery some cuban ladies stole from Casual. The two have been friends since, and recently made Neaux Mursi. They recruited Unjust for production. Here’s three reasons you should follow Ron Jon Bovi.
You’ll love the production on Neaux Mursi
Unjust was a perfect fit for this album. He brought that tough, hard, organic hip hop beats that make you reminisce of the 90’s sound. No sugar coating, just raw hip hop that every head longs for.
You’ll be reunited or acquainted with Phat Kat, and you’ll be glad you did
I discovered Phat Kat in ’03 with The Undeniable. That’s when I discovered Detroit artists who weren’t named Eminem at the time. He’s got a long discography, going back to the 90’s. If you enjoy Neaux Mursi, you should check out Phat Kat’s solo stuff.
If you like the Detroit hip hop sound, you’ll be listening to “We Get it Poppin” on repeat.
Raw, gritty, and hard. That’s what Detroit sound is. Beats with lyrics that’ll make you bang your head. With Guilty Simpson on this track, I haven’t heard a track from Detroit this good since J. Dilla.
