On the same night that Jay-Z holds court at the Amway Center, down the street at Backbooth another crucial MC will also be making a very rare Orlando appearance. Jonwayne, the mysterious Californian rapper and producer, first came to prominence through his stint with influential hip-hop label Stones Throw Records, but quickly made his own reputation with innovative, eclectic productions and a surprisingly resonant and unique delivery. Titling his 2015 mini-album Jonwayne Is Retired gave many fans more than a little worry, but luckily he came roaring back earlier this year with Rap Album Two, released on his own Authors Recording Company. Step to this.

with Danny Watts, EMV, Rick Haze, Nosis | 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11 | Backbooth, 37 W. Pine Street | 407-999-2570 | backbooth.com | $12
