SL Jones Offers Up Free MP3 Ahead of New Mixtape

SL Jones has set a December 14th release date for his latest mixtape project entitled, Flight Risk.

The 12-track project will serve as a follow-up to the Little Rock, Arkansas, rapper's Don Cannon-hosted mixtape, The Number 23, and will serve as SL's most cohesive, focused effort to date. While guests will be light, the mixtape will include production from a list of A-grade producers, including Lex Luger, Shawty Redd, Sonny Digital, Honorable C.N.O.T.E., Metro, and more, including Young L, who lent his production efforts to the mixtape's first leak, "Gas Station."

While SL hails from the Rock, it was his occasional stints out in the Bay that influenced the title and direction of this latest track. "'Gassing' in the Bay Area, that's just some slang, the same way someone might say, 'Oh, you're going in on that track'," notes SL. "With Young L being from the Bay, and the song just being straight bars, it made perfect sense."

With the beat, something of a minimalist masterpiece, Young L highlights the low end sparingly but when it does hit, it hits hard, a concoction of 808's and distorted, rumbling bass that lets SL get creative with his dexterous, winding delivery. "The beat is so wide open, so I just decided to use different flows," explains SL. "F**k a hook; this is the kinda beat where everything sounds good on it."
