The multi-talented rapper and producer Jonwayne has announced today that he will be retiring from music.
Alongside a press release for his forthcoming EP Jonwayne Is Retired, came this statement:
“Pay attention: Jonwayne Is Retired. He is no longer making beats. Or rapping. He is not writing rhymes. There will be no clever contemplation. No new flips of phrase; no witty banter. Your brain won’t try to keep up. Jonwayne Is Retired.”
Also no longer listed on Stones Throw’s artist roster, although his releases are still up and available, we’re thinking maybe we should be taking this seriously. However, he’s just so great we can’t believe this is really the end…
Bearing this is mind, here’s a track from his new EP – released today.
