Back from the lab with another new heater on his hands, Jonwayne has arrived to screw up faces and light up brains with his latest offering “40 Winks.” Some will recall the Stones Throw producer’s alleged retirement with his 2015 EP, but it doesn’t appear that he can stay away from the game for too long, as the new cut, laced with luscious piano chops and top-shelf lyricism, marks a pronounced return-to-form, brooding with introspective bars, yet light enough to score your next air blessing session.
“40 Winks” marks the latest in a series of maxi-single styled release, all of which followed his gift-to-the-world two-part free beat tape, Here You Go, from last year. You can explore all four of the standalone singles on Spotify and stream his latest down below. If it’s good to your earhole, be sure to pick up a copy of “40 Winks” on iTunes. With the sheer and unquestionable dopeness of these last few, let’s hope we’ve yet to see the last of Jonwayne as rapper or producer. It’s clear he can still put most of your favorites to shame in the booth or behind the boards.
