After a long and distinguished career, people don’t realize how young JR Writer still is. After recently completing a prison sentence, many wrote the bar heavy spitter off. A string of strong song releases confirmed that not only was “the writer of writers” was back, he’s actually improved. In addition to a commitment to physical fitness, Writer has also been putting in that studio work. The release of his Meet Zeus mixtape is all the confirmation we need that he’s still a factor in today’s hip-hop scene.
Meet Zeus features appearances from Dave East, Writer sibling Fred Money, MadeinTokyo, Rich the Kid, & more. Production is handled by a varied assortment of producers, with Criss Childs in particular standing out. Punchlines abound as usual, the project has high rewind value, with no filler. You don’t have to skip anything. It’s beyond commendable that JR would come back with such a strong release at this stage in his career. That along with several nods to the history to the genre, demonstrate just how much JR Writer cares about the fans and the platform.
