New Rapper On The Block - John Public

John Public is a new rapper on the indie scene hailing from Jersey. His style is reminiscent of early '90's Hip Hop mixed in with a white fratboy edge. You definitely should check it out.

Here are two tracks:

"Any of This" * Definitely am feeling this one!

"Fratboy World"

Anyways, Mr. Public just released a mixtape called "The Borrowed LP."

The press release says, "Reaching back into 2003 and selecting beats from Gang Starr’s “The Ownerz,” Public’s latest offering gives new life to Premier’s signature boom-bap sound as a themed, 12-track dose of wordplay. Each song works as part of a fictional night at a college house party, and interludes link the songs together to flesh out the story. Some have likened the overall vibe as being the hip hop equivalent of a classic garage-rock record. But Public describes it more like 'Slug-meets-Lupe at Vince Vaughn’s house. With Guiliani playing beer pong on the deck. With the Bush twins.'"
