Mixtapes: Blue Collar
Commonly known by his stage name Miles Stone, Jovan Turner is no stranger to the rap game. While he currently resides in Atlanta, the North Carolina rapper has been making music since the age of 14. At the time, Stone used his music as an outlet for his anger, fearing that if he did not find a way to control his temper, he would result to a life of crime or violence. “I’ve always had a very bad temper and no real way to express it until I started to take writing music seriously. I always wrote, but I started to do it more consistently at the age of 14. It was my safe haven, and now it turns out to be the only thing I want to do.” Over eight years later, Miles continues to work on his music, including dropping a tape on December 26th.
Influenced by Southern greats such as T.I., Big K.R.I.T., Outkast and UGK, Miles does not stay in one realm when it comes to his music. His recently released tape even includes a reggae song entitled “Paradise”, which ended up being his favorite song on the tape. “It’s a reggae song that tells a very unique story. Since it’s reggae, I was blessed enough to feature a reggae singer who was born in Trinidad. It was a dope experience creating the song, it’s so different & it’s feel good music.”
With the recent release of his highly-anticipated mixtape Blue Collar, Stone is currently in the process of shooting a music video for his first single entitled “Keep It Player.” In addition to his new project, the young rapper also plans on headlining his own concert in the spring. “Early spring I will be having my first concert in March. I’m the headliner so I’m excited. Anyone who wants to be a part of that, get at me let’s work.” In the future, Stone hopes to work with other great artists such as Money Makin Nique, Miloh Smith and Naj Murph, along with legends including Bun B and Andre 3000.
