In this fickle environment that we currently have in the music industry, we are always complaining about hearing ‘real’ music, looking for a different sound, getting back to ‘feeling’ music again. Yes, I hear and say the same things. Why do radio stations play the same artists year in and year out? Why is it that we always have to hear ignorance in music?
Listen…. If I had the answers, then I wouldn’t be able to bring focus to a 3 member group (Actually, 3 individual acts who have banded together to form a unit.), 3D The Boss. Is it true that they really love their art and want to bring awareness with their craft? Can they be compared to anyone currently in the game? And is it true, that, in the near future, that I, will be their biggest fan?
Well, let’s find out…….
CANTON JONES ANNOUNCES ‘LUST, DRUGS & GOSPEL’
Free Download will serve as an appetizer while fans wait on God City, USA.
Canton Jones—the Grammy, Stellar and Dove Award nominee—will release his new mixtape Lust, Drugs & Gospel as a free download starting Tuesday, February 18th. Additionally, this project will be distributed by Syntax Creative making it available at all major digital service providers, and available for pre-order on iTunes today. This full length release will serve as an appetizer while fans wait for God City, USA to be released this Spring.
On “Prodigal Daughter,” Canton Jones writes to a woman who was driven into prostitution. Like the story of the prodigal son, “the entire mixtape communicates that no matter how far you’ve gone, you aren’t too far to come home,” says Canton Jones.
Canton Jones has been professionally recording music since 2002, but has been singing and performing his whole life. His artistic style comes from a diverse background which includes—but is not limited to—being part of a gospel quartet as well as being raised by hip hop. This rich landscape of influences adds an unparalleled depth and diversity to his music.
On Lust, Drugs & Gospel, Canton Jones delivers another strong project with R&B and Hip Hop naturally woven together. Fans can look forward to features from artists Bizzle, D-Maub, Milliyon, Mouthpiece, & more as well as production by the legendary Mel-Man (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Gucci Mane). Read more…

Bradd Marquis is not only an amazing singer; he’s a master craftsman that uses soul music to tell a story and transport listeners to a different world. A world filled with love, romance, and a touch of drama which can all be summed up in the title of his new album, Thank You. After just one listen of Bradd’s incredible voice it’s easy to see why he is constantly compared to RnB legends like Teddy Pendergrass and Gerald Levert. Bradd has done the almost impossible by creating an album that flows from one song to another without missing a beat. With tracks produced by Angelo Ray (who’s also worked with Akon and Kevon Edmonds) Thank You is easily a contemporary classic and Bradd Marquis is destined to be the new voice of soul music.
