“Talk to Jon Waltz like you talk to a God” raps Jon Waltz on his most recent release “Home”. Now you’re probably wondering who is Jon Waltz? It's the exact same thing many fans of Skizzy Mars asked on a recent post of Skizzy’s, which featured the aforementioned lyric by Waltz. To answer the question on every hip-hop heads mind; Jon Waltz is an upcoming rapper hailing from Memphis, Tennessee who happens to be a affiliated with Skizzy Mars's Penthouse Music. Waltz, brandishes himself as an arcane rapper-singer whose mere tone and flow emits mysterious and moody vibes. This style is best exemplified on his most popular track “Bang", which features Waltz rapping strong bars and crooning over a 90’s alternative-esque instrumental.

With “Home” Waltz continues his dominance of the rapper-singer style, with woozy romantic bars over dissonant ghostly vocals, which make up the soundscape for the track. What makes Waltz so good at alternating between singing and rapping are his distinct vocal fluctuations when switching from rapping to singing. At the drop of a dime, Waltz is able to shift down from spitting hard, confident-infused rhymes to singing about his helplessness at the hands of a woman. It takes a truly special, and moreover, talented artist to complete such a feat with so much ease.
Be on the watch for Jon Waltz because in my opinion, Jon Waltz is the next big thing to come out of Tennessee since that of TDE rapper Isaiah Rashad. Keep it locked to EARMILK for everything Jon Waltz and support the Penthouse Music affiliate by following him on Soundcloud.
