New York’s Jack­son Turn­er has just released his new album “Long Time Com­ing”. The LP ranges from clas­sic boom-bap to more elec­tron­ic influ­enced Hip-Hop. Fea­tured on the album are the Boston Hip-Hop duo N.B.S., Clev­e­land rap phe­nomen­on Donny Arcade, Lon­don rap­per Apex Zero, Nkese P, Rawhx, Dan‑E, Nuel, and Zulu Bob. Jack­son worked togeth­er with pro­du­cers Soulspeak, Spoon, Jew­ell Forten­berry, DJ Shaba, DJ Seboo and TB-Ray. The album has been released under Pan­theon Élite Records.

“Long Time Com­ing” has been named appro­pri­ately because it rep­res­ents a cul­min­a­tion of almost ten years of Jackson’s music­al and artist­ic devel­op­ment. The songs were writ­ten and recor­ded at vari­ous points in his career and reflect dif­fer­ent changes in his music­al style and world view. Top­ics range from the per­son­al to the polit­ic­al; from right­eous club music to hard hit­ting street cyphers. Reg­gae, Soul and Funk sounds can be heard through­out the album, while the lyr­ics remain con­scious, artist­ic and poet­ic.

Com­pared to Jackson’s first pro­ject “The Found­a­tion” EP, “Long Time Com­ing” is more of a deep­er com­ment­ary on soci­ety. Every song has a clear mes­sage; every word pre­cisely chosen to speak the truth. Wheth­er rap­ping, singing or as exec­ut­ive pro­du­cer, Jack­son puts his unique touch on each song, bring­ing a uni­fied vis­ion to a wide range of con­cepts and sounds.

Along­side the new LP, Jack­son has released his new­est video for “Face the Morn­ing Sun”, a soul­ful, lyr­ic­al boom-bap head nod­der pro­duced by Japan­ese based French pro­du­cer DJ Seboo fea­tur­ing Apex Zero and Chinese song­stress MiX­in. The video, mas­ter­fully cre­ated by Glob­al­Fac­tion, was shot on loc­a­tion in Brix­ton, Lon­don before a show at the cHip sHop by the legendary pion­eers of Hip Hop in the UK, Lon­don Posse. Rod­ney P and Bion­ic appear in the video along­side oth­er roy­alty of the UK music scene, includ­ing DJ Skitz and Jump­ing Jack Frost.
