Jonny Empire is an emcee from Stamford, CT who’s style and voice leaves a lasting impression. His modern boom bap sound has clear influences from Nas, Big L, Mobb Deep, and G-Unit. Staying true to the art form, Jonny releases his latest head nod single Decent Mid produced by his older brother Anabolic. The song pays homage to the Jadakiss and Anthony Hamilton classic “Why” with his opening lyrics “Why did Kobe have to take that flight? Why do people gotta air business out to help them sleep at night?”.
“This song came about as a reflection of the year so far. A lot situations personally and nationally made me question how things would be moving forward. I’m huge NBA fan, so the passing of Kobe Bryant hit me hard as he was one of my favorite athletes. The beat sonically felt right to how I was feeling at the time” says Jonny. The result is a raw felt extended verse filled with a unique mindset as he maps out his future in Hip Hop.
The CT heavy-hitter is focused on unleashing an onslaught of projects in the new decade. This single is a mighty example of the high quality bangers to expect in the future. Check your preferred digital retailer or streaming platform now to hear for yourself!
