In order to know where you are going, you have to know where you have been. Unlike some of todays new emcees, Graffiti Jones knows hip-hops past. His meticulous study of his craft has allowed him to form himself into a new, more dangerous type of emcee. Cerebral at times, Jones says, his style is not conscious, it is just awake. Graffiti is able to think on a higher level as evidenced by his banger Tetris in which he analyzes the blocks you find in the ghetto as opposed to the courts and lanes you find in the suburbs. Jones club single Where Ya At!?!!, with frequent Dead Prez collaborator, Tahir, proves that there is also a time to party and have fun. Bridging the gap between underground and mainstream, Jones is able to maintain respect from fans all across the board. He hopes to breakdown the barriers that keep fans from embracing both styles. With his debut album titled Seven, scheduled for release late summer 2006, we are all headed towards a new united hip-hop front.
