Sunspot Jonz Fight-Destroy-Rock/The Darkside Ov Heaven
- Words: Zoneil Maharaj
- Label: Outhouse
- XLR8R Rating: 5/10
As a producer, Sunspot Jonz’s beats are always on point. As an MC, he’s a hype man at best. On this double release, The Darkside ov Heaven and Fight-Destroy-Rock, Sunspot has some ill things to say and an ear for dope beats, but it’s nothing we haven’t heard before. On Darkside, he crafts some heaters—“Hug Bacardi,” “Sunspeezy,” and the title track will surely have heads nodding. With Fight, Sunspot stays true to his “independent as fuck” mantra, taking it back to the classic, raw Living Legends sound, dusty four-track flavor and all. Fans of old-school Legends will dig it, but if you’re not accustomed to Sunspot’s quirky style, you likely won’t get into it.
