Last Sunday, I watched Terminator: Salvation for the first time. It was decent, but not quite as enjoyable as anticipated. My gut’s telling that a similar scenario will not be the case for Jon Connor the rapper’s version of Salvation, which drops July 12 on iTunes. After I initially doubted the variably of the leaks from his project, the arsenal of skill displayed since by this level-headed lyricist has quenched my thirst for more, as he’s been coupling bars with brains and show-and-prove-tracks with heartfelt memoirs.
The last leak from the project keeps the soaring standard in tact, as “Fli69″ finds Jon Con weaving in and out of both quotable one-liners (“….this that George and Diego/I told ‘em I was gon’ Blow”) and further statistical details on why I don’t venture into Flintown very often.
