Discovery: Juni Ali

Juni Ali is an American hip-hop artist who has teamed up with rapper Truly Def and jazz singer Kristen Warren for new single R & R.

R & R is a concise number. Running just over two minutes it’s short and sweet but there’s a lot packed into it. Looped percussive strings form a foundation for Kristen Warren’s jazzy choruses and Truly Def’s flow on conscious verse. It’s an easy listen that demands numerous revisits.

Juni Ali is the producer for The Beat Ministry and loves nothing more than bringing together artists with different musical backgrounds. Juni does it to great effect in R & R. Check it out below.
