About Jimmy Johnson
For those unfamiliar, Jimmy Johnson (not to be confused with the American football broadcaster) is an emerging Torontonian emcee affiliated with Drake's OVO clan.
The disclaimer accompanying his recent single "Rolling Deep" (soundtracked by Austin, Texas producer Eric Dingus) sums up his approach nicely:
"...a translucent combination of sounds that each pay homage, in one way or another, to individual genres of hip-hop. Unexpectedly enough... they come together to [form] a cohesive sound that [just may be] the missing link between soul and urban music today... Jimmy once again takes us... a little bit farther away from what we've become so programmed to believe a rap artist should sound like in  and beyond."
Word. Keep an eye on this one.
