Saint Louis, Mo. own J.R. just released his Gang Season EP on February 26th. J.R. is most known for his breakout single “Best Friend“, featuring Grammy award winner, Trey Songz. The 7 song EP shows a range of diversity. Starting with the title track “Gang Season“. On “Today” he shows how important it is to live in the moment with the hook saying “I live for today, fuck tomorrow“. He gives us an inside look of St. Louis on “You See It“. Then he switches the tempo and gives us great weekend playlist music on “Party Bussin“. J.R. slows it down on “Never Say Never” which sounds like a sweet love song until you listen to the lyrics. Followed by his biggest song to date “Best Friend“. He ends the project on a darker note with “Murda” on which he speaks on death. Overall the “Gang Season” was a great listen.
The project can be purchased on iTunes or streamed through Apple Music. It can also be streamed via soundcloud below:

Collision Records’ artist Alex Faith presents his second track off his album ATLast. I’m really digging’ this mesh up from hiphop verses to powerhouse chorus/hooks. An electronic beat with nice snares brought to you with crazy production from Wit & Wes Pendleton. You would never guess Alex had so much in him when it comes to his presence on the track. He stands out! Looking forward to his project ATLast, that dropped last month via iTunes.
Alex Faith is poised to capitalize on the success and acclaim he’s garnered from features with his own offering of music birthed in the south and raised on authenticity and gritty realism. While he holds his faith high, don’t expect to hear songs that are sermons and scripture recitations. Alex embraces his faith while still transparently rhyming about his struggles with belief, social issues, loved ones, poverty and more.
