EP Review: JU$TIN – JUSTIN Designed THAT


JU$TIN_1[LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA] Originally from the Bronx, Hip-Hop/Rap Artist JU$TIN had an unfortunate experience with the LA County Jail system. He was fighting a felony charge for a month and half spending time behind bars. Luckily, he was released in time to graduate from Santa Monica College with honors. That experienced helped give enough inspiration to bring his first EP JU$T HU$TLE BxTxH: 3883076 to life and releasing his second EP $treet ART.

$treet ART was more like a throwback freestyle tape done over classic 90s NYC HipHop instrumentals. The title pays homage to the Graff culture and is a metaphor for how Street Artists tag their name onto other peoples property, which is what JU$TIN was doing by showing respect to a few classics by adding something new to it. JU$TIN released those two EP’s back in August of 2015 and now he presents us with his latest release JUSTIN Designed THAT EP. Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, I’m going to review my favorite tracks off the EP.

[LAPTOP 2 TRAPSPOT] When using your computer/laptop as a source of creating music, promoting yourself, and even making money off the internet. Your Laptop is your trapspot. JU$TIN elaborates the Cali scene with the finest greens. I sense with this track you can hear the East Coast Influence with the beat production by @SeriousBeats.

Jackie-Joyner-Kersee-Artwork[JACKIE JOYNER KERSEE] With the opening statement of the track, it’s a woman’s voice that says “I think you learn so much from losing. I think-uh losing helps to keep things in perspective, helps you to evaluate what went wrong, and why was it that you came up short”. I find that quote to be empowering. JU$TIN says this is an anthem dedicated to all the money chasers that we face. The title is names over the legendary Olympic Gold Medalist Jackie Joyner Kersee. This is actually the first single off the JUSTIN Designed THAT EP, produced by @TrapMafiaBeatz.

[LOVE ME] Was the first song JU$TIN recorded on Thanksgiving Day and after listening to it, he decided he wanted to release another project for Christmas and started gathering beats from various producers online. It took about three to four weeks to get JUSTIN Designed THAT EP to be complete. The track LOVE ME, is expressing how people can’t help but appreciate him as a person and as an artist. This track you can hear the West Coast influence in its production, brought to you by @DJRELLYRELL.

[WORST DECISION EVER] JU$TIN goes in on his worst decision ever, which is dating someone who he wish he never met. The woman he was with decided to love someone else while JU$TIN was investing his time and emotions. He feels it has messed up his thought process. Hopefully, acknowledging what went wrong and learning from his mistakes.

“My writing process doesn’t consist of jotting rhymes down or typing into my mobile device, I construct the entire song in my head, w/ the hook being the first thing I record, and then I roll 1 up and vibe to the beat until the lyrics begin to come to me – JU$TIN

Besides being an artist, JU$TIN executes his visions through his graphic designs. He can draw, paint, and he even has a degree in Graphic Design plus a background in illustration from his time spent attending the High School of Art & Design in NYC. He even started his own clothing line. You can catch JU$TIN wearing it on the cover of JUSTIN Designed THAT EP, but you should check out his shop for some more graphic tees, crew neck sweaters, and pull over thermal hoodies that were personally designed by artist / designer JU$TIN.

Music Video: E. Grizzly – Moore


The Philadelphia artist E. Grizzly brings this visual for his single ‘Moore’ to the forefront of the underground with precision and polish. The song comes from a place of thought, as most good art does, and has stark honesty about the dating scene in the digital generation. Even the beat echoes this sentiment. Dark and digital, it lays the framework for E. Grizzly to offer his sentiments to the masses.

‘Moore’ is directed by Ronin of RA and is the third installment of Grizzly’s “Generation A” video series. Even if this video stood on it’s own it would be heavy, but the collaboration between RA-NYC and E. Grizzly just adds more weight to an already respectable project. There are some good vibes coming from E. Grizzly and RA, I’m excited to see more from the PKG artist in the near future.
