The awkward feeling when you feel like you should’ve known about an artist a long ass time ago.
I feel that way about the producer and the rapper here, as “Jazz Crimes” is a single from Bone Music, an EYRST Records collaboration between The Last Artful, Dodgr and Neill Von Tally (2015’s Fractures EP being their first). Portland MC The Last Artful, Dodgr (yes, there’s a comma) is an incredibly unique breath of fresh air while still giving you everything from Missy to Bone Thugs to ODB energy at the drop of a dime, and that’s just on this song. Songs like “Foreclosure” reveal her to be a capable MC who can also sing…pretty damn well, too. Get familiar if you’re not.
