Prote-J: New music & FMF tonight!




One of our favorite local rappers (as we've spelled out here and here), Prote-J, just keeps cranking out the good. In addition to his appearance TONIGHT at FMF (Wall St. Plaza Main Stage - 6:45 p.m.), he's just released a couple of free downloads that look to be included on his upcoming mixtape, Dope Raps & Kit Kats, out April 19.

And they sound, well, fantastic. The first is a Bruno Mars "Grenade" remix featuring Prote-J at the top, injecting one of my Top 5 favorite artists of last year with just a little more heartbreak over the beat.

The second, an original titled "This Life" is a head-nodder with swagger on a hundred thousand trillion.

The third (!), "Bigger Things" details his upbringing in third-world Papua New Guinea.

Cop 'em now, see him tonight!
