J Scienide – “The Jux” ft. DJ Iran

April 18, 2017

By Kaitlin

Washington, DC-native emcee J Scienide released “The Jux,” a traditional sounding hip-hop track produced by Gensu Dean featuring DJ Iran today. According to the J Scienide, the song is inspired by a conversation with a few older men in October of last year. He was in Brooklyn at a cookout.

J Scienide says the following about his latest release, “I had the beat playing on repeat as I was on the way to a cookout back in October. The guys talked about the good ol’ days when they used to go to parties at The Tunnel, Latin Quarter, and Mars; see people get robbed or partake in a robbery (or a jux). They grew up in New York City during the 1980s. At the time at the cookout, Slick Rick and BDP (Boogie Down Productions) played in the background. Subsequently, I grabbed a pen and a napkin. Then, I started writing to the beat. Gensu’s stripped down instrumental fit perfectly. It brought out my lyrics, and made me reminisce about sitting on the stoop in Brooklyn with the guys.”
