San Antonio MC Mike Jones has a pretty unfortunate name for an upstart Texas rapper, but he’s proud of it anyway, I think. Judge for yourself: “For better or worse not being a Jones is a curse, and when I leave this bitch my name itself is gonna need a hearse.” Another Mike Jones claiming to “keep it 100” and “true to the streets” in a hardened Texas accent might seem as redundant as later rhymes “my way or the highway” and “doing it the fly way,” but Jones’s raspy delivery and surefooted cadence leave hope he might make a distinct name for himself with more inspired material.
