Row Jones - Warped Magazine Interview

Warped Magazine took some time out of their busy schedule to interview Row Jones on what's going on in Row Jones world. They were just so curious to know what this buzz for the self proclaimed, "Smokey Robinson" of hip hop was all about. This, "Snoop Dogg of the East," has been hitting the east coast and releasing singles for his fans continuously for the past 2.5 years, so it's about time some one caught up to him. Check out the in-depth interview here. Link below after the excerpt.


Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.

The song is called Don’t Talk and it’s produced by Bboyspaz, a producer out of North Carolina. It’s a hip hop/R&B mixture with all the vocals done by me. This song has been out for a few months already and it’s getting a great response locally; now it’s time to spread it throughout the country and worldwide. It’s all original music, no samples or anything.

The concept of the song is basically based on the idea that body language is the most prevalent thing when it comes to communication in relationships. Whether it’s your friend, family, or significant other. But of course, I’m talking strictly about a woman I’m dealing with.

There’s just something about being able to know what someone is thinking or saying without them even talking. We all kind of speak sign language on the low. The song is on Reverbnation, Facebook, and Bandcamp. And will be on MySpace and YouTube very soon.

How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?

My music is based on real situations. There’s no need to exaggerate. Even when I’m talking about being in the club, I come from a different perspective. I have a song about only needing the women in the club until the end of the night, after the dancing is done I’m not sticking around fishing for numbers/fights/flyers etc. If I do end up bringing one home, she better like taking cabs (haha).

There has definitely been a rebirth in the definition of “real rap.” In my experience it started with people like Mos Def, The Roots, and Little Brother. Mos Def is a superstar, yet Ms. Fat Booty is about a chick who paid him no mind in the club until she met him again later through industry connects.

Little Brother is the epitome of reality rap, talking about jobs they had in the department store and women who only wanted to mess with them because they thought a record deal was on the table. That’s the kind of vibe I bring to the table.

Reggae Sundays - A Lesson In Vibes

Simple. This is a lesson in vibes. Smooth transitions, classics and hits. New music mixed with old traditions. Just might learn somethin. I wanna shout out Apani Smith for listening! That was a blessing. It's nice to have people who already have fame in their own right, listening to you. It's amazing what this internet thing can do and how it can connect people from all walks of life so easily.

On a more solemn heart goes out to those who were brutally and horribly killed in their school in Connecticut. I can't believe people could be so heartless and senseless. I played a song for them, Jah Cure - Thank You For Life. I have to make sure I appreciate MY life, cause i bet they would want people to put more value on life in general.

Bless Up
