Jesse Bland is the Chicago-based artist behind Jay Hunna, who grew up listening to classic hip hop legends like Tupac, Jay Z, and Biggie. Good Ol’ Music is his ode to these artists and the power of music as a whole. “Good music translates in all languages. It creates a feeling of happiness and joy in most people, so I just want to reach every language and give them that experience,” explains Hunna. Over the smooth instrumental, Hunna ruminates on his youth and the music that inspired him and continues to inspire him as a musician and as a human of this lonely world, that can feel a little less lonely with some good ol’ music.
Watch Jay Hunna hit record shops and cruise around the city, below. You can find Good Ol’ Music off his forthcoming album, Better Days, which comes from the tragic death of his cousin Sandra Bland which sparked nationwide attention in July 2015. Sandra Bland closes out the album on the track entitled “Land Of The Free”.
