Single Serving: J.O. Cool & John Wade – First Impressions

Louisiana producer John Wade is on a mission to put his town of Baton Rogue on the map while simultaneously promoting a funky and progressive Southern hip hop scene.  That is certainly no small goal, but if you are going to make an impact you have to aim high.  To make that happen, he’s teamed up with the laid-back and smooth flow of Woodruff, South Carolina MC J.O. Cool. And I’ll be damned if their debut, First Impressions, isn’t a huge stride in the right direction.

  • The minute I saw the cover I knew this would be good. These two songs have me pretty freaking excited for this duo. Almost everything I’ve been missing in Hip Hop!

    THAAAAAAAAANKS!
