         I am thoroughly impressed with the mind of Julz Jones because his music gives him a leadership voice inside a generation that is usually more concentrated on self-worth and irresponsibility. The Julz Jones you hear in songs like “long way from home” contain messages of apprehension and distrust in relationships, something young adults complain about a lot but still grasp the the concept of. Then we have songs such as “nobody’s favorite rapper (Coup De Etat)” where Julz chooses to display his ability to match rhymes with ideas in a instructional manner as if to say “i heard you Rakim”. Lines like “ its funny how all of a sudden they into Julz, and Murphy’s Law the only reason that you been confused” captures the intelligence of the artist and mixes it with the bravado of a confident writer.
 
        You believe him when he raps. I spend a long time wondering if Julz is a southern rapper that has up north influences or a southern-influenced rapper with a northern accent. He seems to embody an entire coast of music.
 
          He does appear to speak compassionately about topics such as materialism and love which may be a direct result of his upbringing in impoverished neighborhoods in a single family household. If only his sound quality and production matched his talent.
 
As far as looking for this generation’s leader: the evidence is apparent. It’s Julz Jones. The kid who got kicked out of class for winning the debate against the teacher.
 
        The substance abuser who tells you why he prefers natural herbs over pharmaceutical-distributed drugs. The young man who got his college degree but never forgot to think outside of the box. The student who did other students work for studio time money. The artist who writes an opinion piece on himself.
 
          The rapper who never uses the same flow twice. The rapper who names his album “Coupe De Etat” in order to foreshadow his impact on today’s rap culture. The artist who appreciates all genres of music.
 
The rapper who lives life as an individual with interesting viewpoints on good energy and powerful results, has a natural talent and ability to captivate an audience.
 
Yes, I have found him and so should you!
