I honestly never really listened to Jonwayne until yesterday.  With his third installment of the cassette mixtape series, Jonwayne provided a free download as opposed to only providing cassettes for the first two releases. When I heard Captain Murphy had a verse on “Dog it” I decided to listen to Jonwayne’s whole mixtape, Cassette 3: The Marion Morrison Mixtape, released yesterday for free via Datpiff.  This Stones Throw rapper also produces beats, but little more information about him has been released by the label. This 37 minute mixtape is rittled with Brainfeeder influence including verses from Jeremiah Jae and Flying Lotus‘ alter-ego, Captain Murphy.  After my first listen, my intitial response was “wow, this white guy sounds like RZA, but on some trippy shit”.  “Dog it” is by far my favorite on this tape as Captain Murphy and Jeremiah Jae both spit eerie verses alongside Jonwayne over a dark, low bpm beat.
