Chicago MC, Ajani Jones has announced his debut LP Dragonfly arriving July 16th.
The LP will come via Closed Sessions, the Chicago tastemaker label who have a knack for being first on some of Chicago's most unique talents with releases that include Jamila Woods HEAVN and more recent LEGACY!LEGACY!, Kweku Collins Nat Love among others.
Ajani Jones, hailing from Chicago's Southside is no different and it's with Dragonfly he aims to make his mark. Armored with a razor-sharp wit and quick, syncopated flow, Ajani created the LP "because I realized that growth was essential for myself as a person and artist before I was ready for success and the next phase of my life. I had held onto childish ways and alienated myself so many years and this project was a literal transformation of myself."
Hear the first track from the project "Pluto" now. Laden with warm bouncy production, Ajani is pensive describing what it is to get by in Chicago with aspirations that go beyond surviving day to day. Listen below.
Ajani is a refreshing rapper because he does not make music that's reactive to his contemporaries. - VULTURE
The depth of Chicago rap talent continues to astound, and newcomer Ajani Jones is a dextrose rhymer with a deep bag of flows, a knack for understated melodies, and an ability to dart around spacious production. - PIGEONS & PLANES
operating in that sweet spot of 'technical but not too rappity-rap,' revving up not for the sake of revving up but to convey urgency and paranoia. - PASSION OF THE WEISS
Jani's intro- ft. Jack Red (produced)
