Local rhyme slinger Gunn Jakc
is set to release 144 Killahurtz
later this month, but you can already stream a couple of tracks on his MySpace page. Along with guest spots by a host of local rappers, the debut features production by Miles Bonny
, who has been busy launching his own podcast. "The Purple Jungle mix is just one link in the chain of releases I'm currently producing," Bonny tells the Pitch
. "[It's] a few songs that feel nice together." The 40-minute blend of chilled-out hip-hop and soul includes samples of Mos Def, A Tribe Called Quest and Erykah Badu, and is perfect for shaking off last night's demons. While you're downloading, decide for yourself if Bonny has the chops for American Idol
as he sings on his cover of Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere."
