Big Tone -- "God Bless You"

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 4:19 PM

Here's a new single that Detroit rapper Big Tone recently put online that quickly reminds me how much I miss this guy rapping. He's had his shots at stardom, including label affiliation with ABB Records and Tres Records that never fully got him all of the accolades that he deserves. But anyone who knows hip-hop can easily recognize and acknowledge that the former Wasted Youth emcee is one of the better lyricists in the city, even when he's retired. He was actually helping to run things with the J-Dilla Foundation alongside his wife Kindra for awhile and concentrating on the business side of things.

Thankfully, his microphone still works though and he recently put this song out called "God Bless You" for listeners to enjoy. Let's hope this is the start of more material hitting the web.
