Update: Cassette will go out of print due to a complaint by Marlboro manufacturer Philip Morris.
Read about the complaint here, and check out Jonwayne’s second cassette.
Jonwayne’s new release is a rap cassette. That is to say, a hip-hop album called Cassette, released only on cassette, playable on a cassette player.
We’re not posting the track list, and we’re not releasing this on anything but a cassette. Side A is beats and raps by Jonwayne with Brainfeeder’s Jeremiah Jae. Side B is beats by Jonwayne and no raps. Total running time: 23:39. Design by Jeff Jank.
The MC/producer/Low End Theory DJ offered no explanation as to why he wanted to release his album on cassette. Asked if he wished to expand on the idea he said, “not particularly.”
Check out a track called “Bukowski” from Side A, below.
