Jay Hunna released a new music video for his track “Good Ol’ Music” from his upcoming “Better Days” album coming out Sept. 8. Check out the track here:
Hailing from the south side of Chicago, Jay’s inspiration for his debut album “Better Days” comes from the tragic death of his cousin Sandra Bland, which sparked nationwide attention in July 2015. Sandra Bland closes out the album on the track entitled “Land of The Free.” To tell his story in the album, Jay looks to Hip-Hop artists such as Jay Z, Tupac, Notorious BIG and others and takes elements of their style. Some of those elements can be heard in “Good Ol’ Music,” which celebrates Hip-Hop and independent record shops as seen in the video. Jay visits a shop and picks up classic records from legendary rap acts all while giving a very chill vibe that celebrates recognizing where we come from and the importance of community. Although the song talks about coming from humble beginnings, the track is also proving that we don’t always have to stay there.
Lyrically, the song begins with Jay expressing his appreciation for music at a young age and how he would go up to his room and use music when he was feeling down to feel like new again. The chorus is about relaxing, smoking, drinking, and listening to good ol’ music, and the chill beats allow for the listener to do the same when they blast this track at full volume. Jay comes off as a man who wants to enjoy the good times and not worry about the problems of the world, making him the perfect candidate to deliver a fresh track that celebrates the inspirations of legends past as well.
Overall, the song is recommended for anyone who prefers the more laid-back style rappers compared to their super hard counterparts. There will no doubt heavy-bangers on the rest of the album, so we’re excited to hear what comes next from Jay and his upcoming “Better Days.”
