The world has known Orlando Jones for just about ever & he has worked on more shows & movies than we can even count. His latest project is different from what most would expect. He is releasing music now & his first video is called “Thug Music Vol. 1: Play At A Maximum Level“. See what Jones had to say about his project below.
“I wrote this song, “Thug Music Vol. 1: Play At A Maximum Level” & the forthcoming “Tainted Love” graphic novel- to explore themes of how our culture has been co-opted & appropriated (sometimes with our implicit endorsement) & then spoon-fed back to us (and society at large).
In selecting “Thug Music Vol. 1: Play At A Maximum Level” as the first release of my musical journey, it’s important to point it it’s not intended to be a Top-40 joint. The sound I’m sharing is raw, evolving & from my soul. Some of you will (hopefully) feel it & others might not find it to their liking. I welcome any constructive criticism; but I’ll be much more interested in what you have to say if you bring your own creative game to the conversation.
Let’s make sure the faces of our fallen aren’t relegated to the dustbin of irrelevancy but instead treated with the same reverence as the faces in that Apple campaign with the quote I am so fond of. It’s the very least we can do!”
