California—is becoming a huge region for buzzing talent. Sure, California has always had dope music and started several different movements musically—but over the last couple of years, California’s hip-hop market has been overshadowed by Southern and East Coast Hip-Hop.
With that being said, Producer Jansport J is helping to bring a refreshing and classic sound to California music. With his productions being seen on songs like “We Made it 09’” on the LAUSD Presents Curly Tops and Nautica Jackets mixtape, on the Love Songs For Losers & Ballads For Ballers EP, as well as on his album High Power Moves along with emcee Hawdwerk. Taking time from working on his upcoming instrumental album MoveMeants, Jansport J let me ask him some questions.
pretty cool, i’ve thought lite was dope ever since his version of “Go Ladies,” (the slum village song) my shit. So uh, yea his new mixtape.

This has been out for a little while but not everybody knows about it and being that its what I’ve been listening to all day, I thought it would be fitting that this would be my first post.
Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek are finally back in the studio working on a new album entitled Revolutions Per Minute. Until then they leave us with is gem, The RE:UNION mixed by Statik Selektah. If the album is anything like this mixtape or their first album we’re in store for a (crosses fingers) classic album. The mixtape features of course Mos Def and Jay Electronica, but also J. Cole, Styles P, Termanology, and Royce da 5’9 to name a few. If you haven’t heard it, definitly go check it out, its well worth the download.
