“Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis…” [Notorious B.I.G.s Juicy – Steeldrum Cover by John That]

Don’t know much about John That, except that his kind way, makes up for the tune not being perfect – but it’s sheer fun (steeldrums!), so i guess that’s where his personality shines through. Read for yourself:

“This is from my upcoming summer ’12 mixtape. Juicy has always been one of my favorite hip-hop tracks so I wanted to put a little bit of a reggae/rock twist on it. My names John That and I’m originally from the seacoast of NH, US and currently in the middle of a migration to San Diego (holed up in AZ as we speak). I’ve been making music by myself over the last few months with a Sublime-esque sound that reflects my reggae, acoustic pop, indie rock and hip-hop influences. Some of my biggest fans are in Europe and I’d really appreciate any help getting more exposure outside the US. Thanks for taking your time to check me out. Cheers, John”

… more exposure outside the US? Here you go… signed the Internet.

Group Home – Living Proof

One of the defining moments in 90ies hiphop. Dj premier at his absolute prime producing another one of his monotoneous and absolutely slamming (yes that was a word) beats in 1995 while cutting up Inspectah Decks infamous line from Wu Tang Clans most prominent song C.R.E.A.M. Maaan, being the nutcracker was easy. Just another proof that Primo could put on anybody. Heads were cutting this beat up everywhere i went.
