Modest Jon “D Town”

Charlotte rapper, Modest Jon just dropped his new single, “D Town.” The song title is a reference to Derita, a neighborhood of Charlotte where Jon grew up. With a sound that mixes elements of neo-soul, hip-hop, and psychedelia, the track is as diverse as Derita is. Jon raps about his “deepest experiences of being told to be good in a crazy environment of drug dealing, violence, and gang banging.” Despite that, Jon and friends spin the tales into a positive experience in influencing his life.
