Today, April 11th, 2011, marks the release of Memphis up-and-coming emcee Jimmy Astro’s sophomore project Jimmy. Jimmy features all original production from Astro himself except for the tracks 19 Years Young, Life Goes On, and Bacon which were handled by 5thFlo representative Reese Jones. The synth heavy, futuristic production itself works very well in combination with the high pitched raspy flow. Jimmy Astro cites Wale, Kanye West, and Kid Cudi as influences and sounds like a unique combination of all three stars. The Flight Crew and 5thFlo member’s inspiration draws, as he states it, from the “self reliance and efficiency of these artists achieving success through their own will and machine.” and also makes the comment, “Nobody will work harder for you than yourself.” With those wise words, this young artist’s career is set on the right path.
