Carlos St. John is hungry, and you can hear it on his new song “Perfect”. He takes the “Black and Yellow” beat, rips it limb for limb, and rebuilds it from scratch, complete with a chorus and all. Sometimes when you listen to hip-hop, it sounds as though the person behind the mic is sitting back on a lunch break, casually talking through some lyrics. This is not Carlos St. John.

Similar to up and comer The ILLZ, Carlos’ brand of hip-hop is intense. His voice delivers urgency, clarity and passion. He sounds as if his words have been boiling inside of him and if not released, they’ll cause him to spontaneously combust. This makes it impossible not to pay attention. If you like what you hear, grab Carlos’ debut EP The St. John Portfolio, HERE. Pigeons and Planes approved.

You’re looking at a shark in the pond, pray to God you can swim strong.
