A lot of nice MC’s are putting in work in the Pac NW these days, but very few sound like actual stars. Tacoma rhymer John Crown is one of those. To me he sounds a lot like Kanye West if Kanye could actually rap; or Freeway if Free had a voice that you could actually listen to for more than three songs at a time. On “Like This” he gets some help from Queens MC Action Bronson and a nice rugged joint by producer Mike Weed. “Like This” is off Crown’s forthcoming Coffee and Beats.
