DJ 2-TONE JONES - Contraband from India - 2021

LP - 2021 - The Jones Collection 

DJ 2-TONE JONES from Washington D.C drops his latest project entitled "Contraband from India". The album features a nice batch of MCs like Prince Po, Asheru, YU, John Robinson, Hassaan Mackey, Supastition ... just to nem a few ... and features production by Diamond D, Kev Brown, Waajeed, Praise, DJ Roddy Rod ... and many more.

For over 10 years 2-Tone has worked in education in DC; both as an instructor for a Hip-Hop, non-profit organization called Words Beats & Life, Inc. (WBL), and as a teacher at Ballou Senior High School.  He graduated from Morehouse College and went on to receive a Masters degree from the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University.

In 2016 DJ 2-Tone was selected to the Next Level program; an initiative of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and the US State Department.  He was sent to India during the Spring of that year serving as a cultural ambassador on behalf of the US and Hip-Hop. After nearly a month in the land of Gandhi, he returned home with a stack of rare traditional and jazz-fusion records from Calcutta, and hand-selected tracks to send out to a range of legendary, heavy-hitting Hip-Hop producers to sample from. The result of this cultural experiment is "Contraband from India". 

The Vinyl is available exclusively through Get On Down but Limited copies (Collector's Combo (Limited Black Vinyl + Mixtape) & Limited Black edition vinyl (50 copies)) are available Here.
