Rich Jones & Montana Macks: How do you sleep at night? (Stream)

Speaking of Rich Jones, he’s another rapper whose music I’ve once more been enjoying, while neglecting to promote it on here. So with that in mind, you would be wise to check out his most recent project which sees Rich reconnecting with the man who apparently first brought him into music, way back in the school bus days – Montana Macks. The album is only available either on Bandcamp or via the artists directly, because Rich believes it is an album that needs to be digested as a whole, without any loss of the context that can come with playlist placements and the like.
It was written while some of the darker events of recent times played out in front of Rich’s eyes, including the brutality displayed by Chicago police officers, which unsurprisingly found its way into his lyrics. The title itself was a question he was asking himself as the scenes continued to get murkier. Aside from Rich and Montana, the album boasts a line up of guests that reflect Chicago’s supportive network of artists, including the concluding track, Locals Only, which features Psalm One, Defcee, Skech185, Jovan Landry and Matt Muse. As always, self-discovery is a better experience than my words, so go and enjoy the album for yourself. Previews are available below, with downloads available over on Bandcamp.
