LOCAL MUSIC: Jose Lanston "King of the ILL" Mixtape

After months of waiting and all the eagerness from his local fans, Jose Langston
finally released his highly anticipated, “King of the Ill” mixtape executively produced by Chill Will. 
Jose Langston is an upcoming artist in the Metro Detroit area, specifically the Inkster area. 
He has gotten a lot of support over the past few years from when before he was in the studio. A lot of people loved his freestyles and he has only gotten better with punch lines. Jose Langston is reppin’ Fresh Pressure Music group who is going 
to be putting out of a lot projects in the future.

This project is a solid starter mixtape. It is a 9 track tape with more of a freestyle approach to it. Jose Langston’s punch lines and flows are what I favor most about him. He really exploits his abilities on the tracks “Adorn,” “Jackin 4 Beats,” and “Can't take my eyes off of you.” “Can't take my eyes off of you” to me is the best track on here I will continuously listen to it on any given day, I can’t just listen once. The track is sampled by Lauryn Hill’s “Can’t take my eyes off of you” which suits Jose very well in my opinion.

Every artist had to start somewhere and I see potential in this artist. This only a beginning for Jose Langston and he can only get better. I really appreciated the flows, punch lines, and experimentation on this joint. Jose went off a few tracks by well-known mainstream artists such as, Slick Rick, Snoop Dogg(at that time), Tyga, Wale, Busta Rhymes and others. Support our local artists!
