Ryshon Jones is the latest iteration of Philadelphia artists whose desire to spew truth-laden lyrics outweighs their lust for riches. Coming off of a solid run sparked by his Hope Is A Dangerous Thing project, the newcomer returns with a thoughtful video for one of the standout tracks, “American Dreamless.”
Philly’s Hip-Hop scene is much different than most cities, because it’s an amalgamation of MCs that possess a nuanced consciousness, despite how they angle their rhymes. Proof can be heard in this visual for Ryshon Jones’ “Why You Wanna Be Perfect.”
Take a trip into the mind of Philadelphia up and comer Ryshon Jones, who delivered Hope Is A Dangerous Thing. The title — inspired by an episode of Orange Is The New Black — alone infers that the topic matter and overall tone will be dark and thoughtful.
