Product Details


The soundtrack for 30-somethings who feel "growing up" is not an option!

Inspiration always knocks on the door when you're trying to get some sleep. That's the only explanation I've got for returning to being a recording artist after my well-documented and firm retirement from the music business in 2009. I didn't think there was a snowball's chance under Paula Deen's ass that I'd ever make music again. I'm returning to an uphill climb: bloggers and tastemakers half my age, general relevance that has gone from minimal to nearly non-existent and the viral phenomenon has replaced the slow burn method I've become accustomed to. But every Jay-Z needs a broke cousin counterpart like J-Zone to return to a (much) more modest rap arena after sworn retirement.

Like my turbulent ups and downs in the music biz inspired my book (Root For the Villain), the rollercoaster ride of life-altering decisions and expectations that have come with post-rap life (and one's 30s in general) have inspired my first J-Zone solo album in nine years, Peter Pan Syndrome. Of course it's somewhat of a concept album; I had to ask myself (and the general public) "Do rap artists ever have to 'grow up?'" If so, what does that entail?

As a rap artist who at one point was able to survive on modest earnings, but not big enough to really stack money and become a household name, I've landed in an odd position. I never formally entered the workforce until my mid-30s and my lack of "real world" experience has made a career search a grim, albeit hilarious ride. Bringing home $50 a day after taxes and expenses with no room to advance (and eventually working a total of 80 hours per week to make it $150!) was hardly ideal, but that was my reality for a good while and if I couldn't produce something entertaining out of that quicksand jog, I'd be wasting both the experience and my sense of humor. It was also pretty funny to literally be laughed out of an employment agency earlier this year for my "unverifiable" work history in the rap game. Then all this talk about lacking "experience" and my peers saying I can't be walking around with a retro haircut if I'm serious about finding a nice, secure, dead end job. The nerve!

So how did I respond? In the most un-adult manner possible: I eschewed grad school and instead spent my money on old drum kits and learned how to play a little bit, giving a different edge to my production. I turned every blog I was preparing to post on my platform at Ego Trip into a rap song and gave select moments from my book got the same treatment. I called up some old friends (rappers Al-Shid, Celph Titled and Breeze Brewin and cameo-makers Prince Paul, R.A. the Rugged Man and Oxygen), some new ones (rapper Has-Lo and multi-instrumentalist Hot Sugar) and my alter egos (unemployed shit-talkers Chief Chinchilla and Swagmaster Bacon) to help me create the most honest record of my career, yet still by far the most vulgar, lowbrow and juvenile, considering my age. Wish me luck, because if this doesn't work, I'm gonna start doing slip-andfalls in different Whole Foods locations across America for money. Anything to never join a site like again, and keep getting e-mails for shit I'm not qualified for.

Comment: This is hot garbage, really not worth one penny and j-zone makes wack ass albums, no meat on the bones is f*ckin right, can this guy be any wacker, he can be an ill producer for dudes like has-lo, Celph or whoever but f*ck j-zone don't make albums you f*cknut, and you're not that funny unless we are in the 80s and your whitewash hood brand humour is tolerable, if not by seconds but by a minute you f*ckin clown j-zone you suck overall but a couple beats can do but after this epic fail I will sh*t on your sh*t.

Comment: Sriously, zoned out? You're entitled to your opinion, but you seem to be in the minority here. I have to disagree with you about the "interludes" being wack. And what do you mean when you refer to "actual songs"? I assume you are talking about the instrumentals? Instrumentals are actual songs. And the instrumentals on this album are banging' ass funky dusty Hip Hop instrumentals. I don't find anything wack or boring about this album. I'm around J-Zone's age and I've really stopped paying attention to newer music for the most part. It's not very often a new release catches me by surprise and makes me sit down and listen multiple times. This is definitely one of those rare cases for me.

Comment: zoned out, you're a fuckin faggot, bro. Straight up. How are the interludes wack? And how isn't this album better than most shit out right now? It has a concept, you can tell a lot of effort was put into it, the muthafucka actually PLAYED THE DRUMS on this album. No sampled drums. He learned the drums in one year. I admit, I was a LITTLE disappointed too, just because I have such high expectations for J-Zone, but it's still a great album, and it grows on you. I think you're a fuckin idiot, and saying "screw you guys" like you just wasted 10 dollars buying a CD. OH NO! You bought an album. Fuck off you fuckin dicksmoker.

Comment: Everyone's givin 5 stars, that's why I bought it, and I am disappointed. Yeah he's comedic, and yeah he's unique, but still, all those interludes are waaaack. How many actual songs on this album ? And I only think 3 are good anyway. Man, J-Zone can do better than this. That interlude crap is really really really cheap. There aint no meat on the bone on this album !!!!!!!! You guys' comments are misleading, screw you guys.

Comment: One of the dopest albums in forever. It's all I've been listening to since I bought it. This would be a chart topping album in a perfect world. The drumming is funky. The samples are creative. The lyrics are witty and intelligent. The entire concept is inspiring. A step forward for Hip Hop in grim times. I hope J-Zone is still making music well into his 80's.

Comment: Salute J-Zone. The drums are on point. If you haven't already, I highly recommend reading J-Zone's book "Root for the Villain". Knowing what equipment this album was made with makes it that much better.

Comment: Anyone who's into real hip hop needs to check out this album. J-Zone is easily the best hip hop producer to emerge from the US in the past 15 years. There hasn't been one album of this guy's that I own that hasn't been played to death. Even tracks of his from the early noughties are as fresh now as they were back then.His inventiveness, originality, wit and all round funkiness leaves most hip hop in the dirt. Don't be a fool- cop this album now. Back$lap for president!!!

Comment: Do yall know how fucking incredible this is?!?! This dude was like THE ILLEST producer to come out in the early 2000's, and it was like nobody appreciated him that much. This dude has one of THE MOST ORIGINAL sounds I have ever heard from a producer! He's fucking incredible! If he had come out in the early 90's, he'd be talked about with all the other legendary producers. This man is on another level. Shit, even when he rhymes, he's funny as fuck, witty as all hell, and entertaining as it gets! ANY real hip hop head would be stupid NOT to buy this album. Even if you didn't like it, you would STILL APPRECIATE J-Zone's ridiculous skill, and hilarious wit! PLEASE, EVERYONE BUY THIS!!!
