60 FREE Portable "Walkmans:" Jonwayne - Cassette (Side A, with Jeremiah Jae)

"Jonwayne is an MC. He's on Stones Throw. He's making a Rap album for Stones Throw. He also makes beats. That's all we're saying for now. More later. OK?" ... Jonwayne's new release is a Rap cassette. That is to say, a Hip-Hop album called Cassette, released only on cassette, playable only a cassette player. We're not posting the track list, and we're not releasing this on anything but a cassette.

Side A is beats and raps by Jonwayne with Brainfeeder's Jeremiah Jae. Side B is beats and no raps by Jonwayne. Total running time: 23:39. The MC/producer/Low End Theory DJ offered no explanation as to why he wanted to release his album on cassette. Ask if he wished to expand on the idea he said, "not particularly." First 60 orders come with a new, fully-functioning portable cassette player with headphones, plus Jonwayne stickers. Check out a track called "Bukowski" from Side A, below.

- Peanut Butter Wolf (Stones Throw)
