J Davis Trio

This week THE DROP gets to experience the newest incarnation of jazz infused hip hop courtesy of The J. Davis Trio. The Chicago based crew have been breaking beats and busting rhymes for a handful of years. You need to check out this band if you’re into De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, or even Common. The latest album, These Things Happen, is full of incredible bass lines, sultry lyrics and essence of cool. We’re a little partial to the track “Breezay”.
