It's rare to get a submission your truly blown away by, as the influx of music today is unlike any other point in history. So, obviously when something comes down the pipeline that makes you step back, it makes you wonder about the future.
Brooklyn born, New Jersey bred emcee TwonDon did just that last night. I had never heard of the rapper before, but after a short tweet and a few Facebook chats later (praise social media) I was linked up with the 19-year-old musician, stoked to share his new video for "Life's a Bitch".
Antwon Jarell Gibbs shows potential, being that his style is strikingly similar to the great Nas. He's been hard at work, performing at intimate venues across the Northeast, opening up for other artists such as Meek Mill, French Montana and Machine Gun Kelly. In my opinion, the talent displayed in "Life's a Bitch" has the sound that could blow them out of the water.
If you've followed my articles here on EARMILK, I am a huge advocate of lyrical hip hop. Just as the video starts, you're forced into that 30 seconds of wondering how the outcome will turn out. Just in time Twon opens up a string of bars that will melt your face off, paying homage to the classic story told by the Queensbridge legend on Illmatic long, long ago.
