“I’m picking up where Motown left off.”
Mz Jonz is a Detroit based hip-hop artist who just released her debut full length, Here On My Own. (H.O.M.O….I see what you did there). Mz Jonz is a personal rapper, drawing from her life experiences as an out gay artist. Songs like “Mannish” and “Just Friends” are playful, sexual numbers, with slower pulsing beats, about getting (or trying to get) with beautiful women. Other tracks like “Every Time I Wake” are more serious, taking more influence from growing up in Detroit and trying to make it as an artist.
Mz Jonz seems to mostly play around Detroit, but if you have the chance to check her out, do it. In the meantime, listen to her Myspace and Reverb Nation tracks on repeat, because it’s well worth it.
