Tacoma Hip-Hop is better than ever. Every couple years new artists break through the scene and gain the respect of fans. This year, J.U.S. has all our attention with his debut “Final Notice”. This artist has built quite the buzz over the years and this is the perfect project to get to know him if you haven’t yet.
Even the album cover artwork is hella cool with a real slick, sharp looking cartoon of J.U.S. sitting on the porch of a building with an eviction notice on it. While only a slim nine songs, each track on the record is stout and lets you know that J.U.S. is no slouch on wordplay. The album starts with the title track “Final Notice” where it becomes apparent J.U.S. is a smart, smooth-voiced, playeristic MC with a maturity in his bars that can only come with honing his craft. He has a lean energy on tracks and his voice is an old baritone and it gives it an Old-School/New-School sensibility. Soon as the first verse begins you hear an old soul breathing new life onto classic type Hip-Hop beats. It hits just right.
