Junclassic: The Hope Business (Stream)

As the cold winds start to blow, Junclassic delivers some much needed heat, as he unites with Reckonize Real for The Hope Business. According to Jun, the album is the culmination of a concept that has been simmering in his mind for two decades, ever since Only in America – the Don King biopic – created a spark of inspiration. It’s a look at the idea of hope as both a force for good and for evil, depending on who is offering it and to whom. Something that is very relevant in today’s populist political climate. You can hear the album in full below, then head over to Bandcamp to cop a physical/download.
