I love finding incredible new artists and this man J. Plaza most certainly fits into that category. Plaza hails from Minnesota and you can add his name to a bubbling scene that includes rising heatmakers like Allan Kingdom, Bobby Raps, Finding Novyon, Corbin and so on. His newest song “Ashes” has picked up 100k plays on Soundcloud in a little less than a month purely off the strength of the song. It’s gotten no blog coverage but it’s proof that when the music’s very dope, the people will find it.
“Ashes” is helped massively by an incredibly catchy beat that fuses a few beautiful chords with an exquisite vocal sample. It makes the canvas perfect for J. Plaza to show off his talent in front of the pop filter and the microphone. He has a clear, precise flow and he’s got a lot to say on this one including the importance of his father and the loss of one of his best friends and greatest supporters. You definitely need to check out this song and this is surely only the beginning because this man is talented.
