'Raw Wisdom' is a collaborative single by producer Vizier of Dubai, UAE and emcee Ben Z of Madison, WI. Together they present exactly what the song title leads you to expect: raw hip hop drums and samples with thick lyrical wisdom. After you hear this song, you will agree that Vizier is properly holding down hip hop in Dubai, and you will co-sign Ben Z's SoundCloud following of 26,000.
JaeWon (born Jimmy Skoog) coming out of Norrtalje, Sweden, made his debut in 2008 with his EP "Some Kind Of Hero". The five songs on the EP, especially the rock influenced title track, received a lot of positive attention online and all proved that JaeWon didn't have any plans on caring about the rules usually followed in hiphop music. After writing and recording a full length album that unfortunately didn't get to see the light of day for the same label that released "Some Kind Of Hero", JaeWon decided to take matter into his own hands and continue the personal and artistic development he had already started.
For the past year and a half, JaeWon and singer/songwriter Peter Krafft (who runs High On Life Studios in Stockholm, Sweden and is also the lead singer of Swedish band Royal Modesty) along with several known and unknown producers, have been creating an adventurous soundscape allowing JaeWon to unveil his story. The lyrics reflect all sides of his journey - from the boy with a dream who in a Swedish smalltown did everything to break the mold and walk his own path - to the focused, hard-working young man he is today.
Enter "Hometown Hero" - a street album where JaeWon puts it all out there to prove that he is a force to be reckoned with and that he won't let anything, or anyone, come between him and his dream. The concept behind "Hometown Hero" is heavily inspired by the world of superheroes, a place where JaeWon has found motivation and a calm that he couldn't find in the real world.
The first single "Lionheart" got a lot of positive feedback on various blogs and websites and the second single "Long Live The King" (with Pittsburgh producer team I.D Labs (consisting of E.Dan and Big Jerm, who did most of the producing on Wiz Khalifa's "Rolling Papers" and Mac Miller's "Blue Slide Park") got 20000 views on Youtube alone in just over a week after its release.
