J-Kwon Hits iTunes and Digital Outlets with “Tipsy ’09” Hood Hop 2.5 Album Release July 28!

St. Louis, MO — J-Kwon is firing up iTunes and digital outlets around the world today with the official release of his new single “Tipsy ’09”! He is also gearing up for the release of Hood Hop 2.5, which will be available internationally on July 28 via Gracie/EMI.

In early July, J-Kwon debuted his video for the single “Louie Bounce (I Smacked Nikki)” across the web, and the song hit the Top 5 Most Added tracks on Rap Attack Lives DJ charts for the week of July 13. Keeping his focus forward, J-Kwon has been in the studio preparing even more new music to follow the Hood Hop 2.5 project.

“Tipsy ’09” is the follow up to J-Kwon’s 2004 platinum hit “Tipsy,” which still gets love from fans around the world. Before he could even legally vote, the young rapper enjoyed chart-topping success in 2004 alongside his mentors Jermaine Dupri and L.A. Reid at SoSo Def/Arista. In the wake of label politics after Arista’s closing, J-Kwon was left standing alone, but did not miss a step in finding new avenues for himself.

Now 22, J-Kwon is fully independent, and working with Gracie Productions to develop new music that will appeal to his longtime fans and attract new listeners. Tracks like “Tipsy ’09,” “Fly” and “Louie Bounce” are setting the pace for the young rap vet to create a lasting legacy.

“I’m very thankful to have the opportunity to make songs for my fans through the difficult times a lot of people are facing,” explains J-Kwon. “I’m excited to continue the Hood Hop sound, and show the fans who have been with me so long that there is still a lot of fun ahead in the music.”
