In this fast-paced world, we all need to slow down sometimes. "Tortoise," the latest from MoCity Jones, is a funky-happy hip hop vibe for all ages, races, and faces.
Raised in Detroit, Michigan, MoCity Jones took quickly to rapping and beat-making as a means of escape from daily life, and as a way of expressing himself. with over 100,00 views on his datpiff mixtape "Caution" by MoCity & Heat, and having sold hundreds of his custom beats to artists around the country, MoCity Jones is on a mission to change the genre for the better, one song at a time. He is releasing new music every month through his YouTube beat channel "MoCity Jones," and on social media as @mocityjones. His songs are available wherever music is streamed. "Tortoise" mixes a rhumba-flavored rhythmic hook with a slick flow about doing the hard work of self-improvement while also getting away from the "rat-race." Jones has a talent for building metaphor out of the details of life, and leaves us with the lesson that without a strong sense of self we have nothing.
