CJ Warren is a serious hip hop head. He produces unique records and has obvious skills on the mic. This year he’s only dropped instrumentals. To his credit, there are over 20, and all super interesting. It’s been awhile since he’s put out a track showcasing his lyrics, but now seems to be the perfect time.
It’s The Return Of The Dragon, the comeback record that CJ needed to turn heads. The Michigan MC flaunts rhyme schemes and abstract content reminiscent of Raekwon, and packs bars by the bundle. The self produced instrumental is progressive, exciting, and engaging. Although a loosie (available for download), we can expect a new EP titled VII dropping July 7th.
