MP3: SL Jones – “Don’t Want Nan” Ft. Trouble & Starlito (Prod. By Metro Boomin)
VICE’s Noisey Music Premieres Final Leak From Way Of Life No Hobby; Mixtape Out Tomorrow
Critical Praise for SL Jones:
“SL Jones brings a lot to the table.”- SPIN
“SL Jones brings a complexity that’s rare.”- Complex
“Jonesy…we ride for you”- FADER
“SL Jones is a walking definition of the word ‘underrated.'” – The Smoking Section
Tomorrow, September 4th, SL Jones will release his new mixtape, the Don Cannon-hosted Way Of Life No Hobby. Already, Jones has released two singles from the tape, “Big Bank (No Ones)” and the Kevin Gates-featuring “America’s Nightmare,” and today’s leak continues to show off the tape’s diversity – while “Big Bank (No Ones)” was all raw energy, and “America’s Nightmare” offered a look at the tape’s darker side, today’s track “Don’t Want Nan,” features Trouble and Starlito and is a street anthem in the making.
Way Of Life No Hobby is produced entirely by Metro Boomin (Future, Ludacris, Gucci Mane), and while the tape shows off some of the young, Atlanta-based producer’s most accomplished, diverse work to date, with “Don’t Want Nan,” premiered today by VICE’s Noisey Music Metro falls right into his sweet spot, with deep 808’s and sparse synths that compliments the three rappers, and the menacing hook.
Following the release of Way Of Life No Hobby, SL Jones will head to Florida, playing shows in Tampa, Orlando, Miami, and Tallahassee alongside Will Brennan and Austin Millz. Details and flyer below.

Artist Name Background:
With the Rock on his back and a Razorbacks fitted cocked just so on his dome, Little Rock, Arkansas, rapper SL Jonesfirst hit the scene as part of Killer Mike’s Grind Time Rap Gang, releasing his now-classic C.O.L.O.R.S. (Bangin’ On Wax) mixtape. It wasn’t long after that SL knew he had to strike out on his own, and beginning in 2011 he did just that, starting with the release of The Number 23, hosted by Don Cannon. Closing out 2011, SL Jones released his Flight Risk mixtape, and together, the two mixtapes garnered strong reviews from XXL Magazine and Atlanta’s leading alternative weekly, Creative Loafing, while earning the young gunner accolades from FADER, Complex, The Source, HipHopDX, The Smoking Section, Nah Right, RCRD LBL, Dirty Glove Bastard, and more, including a sit down withMTV News’ Mixtape Daily and a nationally televised “On Deck” feature with MTV2’s Sucker Free. In 2012, SL Jones released Paraphernalia, a collaborative effort with producer DJ Burn One that included features from Freddie Gibbs, Rittz, and more. To start 2013, SL Jones released an EP, Trapper’s Delight, produced by M16 and hosted byHoodrich/Grand Hustle’s DJ MLK, , and now, on September 4th, SL will release a new mixtape, Way Of Life No Hobby, produced by Metro Boomin and hosted by Don Cannon.
