New Music: J Laine feat. Alison Carney – Hero

Producer, drummer, bandleader, Dilla enthusiast and all around good dude, J Laine has been working on his album GIANT for quite some time.  I know this cause I’m on it!  I’m really excited for this project though.  I don’t think anyone has made an album that really brought together a number of some of the best MC’s, singers and musicians from the DMV like Jon has.  His previous projects have been really dope but I think this one is going to take the cake.

This is actually the second single off of GIANT, and features Alison Carney on vocals.  I’ve worked with Alison in the past and she’s super talented a brings a lot to a record.  I like what she does here over Jon’s hypnotic production.
