Jetpack Jones keeps it real with his latest offering, “LKWD”, an ode to his hometown of Lakewood, California. Every line paints of picture in the life of an aspiring and talented independent artist.
“‘LKWD’ stands for Lakewood [California], which is where I’m from. Rather than tell you about the city, I decided to convey the feelings that I associate with Lakewood instead. The lyrics paint a picture of starting from scratch in your hometown and working with close friends in order to get out and see the world. This song is meant to motivate and inspire, especially for those who are from places that have not yet been put on the map.”

If there’s a genre of the moment that meshes quite well with hip-hop it has to be electronic music. Case and point: this new song and video from dubstep artist Bassnectar linking up with Lupe Fiasco to create an absolute banger! Lupe is no stranger to this genre either, he released a mixtape back in November full of dope verses over intense electronic tracks including work from Bassnectar. Great to see they have linked back up and continue to work together. This video may possibly melt your face so be warned in advance.
