Thorned Roses, JohnNY U., 2012

Thoughtful planning, consistent direction, strong lyrical ability, insightful storytelling and high quality musical production make Thorned Roses a perfect way for JohnNY U. to introduce himself to the hip hop world.  For full disclosure, I designed the album artwork and took the photograph for the back cover/tracklisting image.  Regardless of my involvement on the project, I think it's clear why I support JohnNY U. and his music.  When you listen, you'll understand.

JohnNY sports a humble, laid back and down to earth disposition that's ripe with his Brooklyn/Queens influences.  I knew this from working with JohnNY, but that doesn't always translate to the music for some artists.  Overall, I'm impressed by how well everything came together on the project.  Thorned Roses features production from Jay Sentine, The Stuyvesants, Apatight, Marink, Hubert Davis, Kids with Guns for School Bullies, Fathom 9, Jay 89, Aeon, ehT. Mills, HP tha Hybrid, 3rd Degree, Lord Quest, J. Monop, Drastic Measures and The Produce Section.  I know of several of these producers, but other than ScienZe, I have some research to do on the featured mc's/voalists.  Featured performers include:  Charlotte Mishell, Noah Caine, Candice "Goldie" Wood,  ScienZe, Sammie Aye, M@RV3LOUS, Alvietron, Hoz the Lyricist, Teresa Taylor, J.O., Khid 2Che, Dollar Coffee and Annetta Rose.
