After nine albums, one would expect and even allow an artist to start running out of fresh topics and ideas. With junclassic, though, that’s not what’s happening. On his tenth album, Words are Weapons, jun spits fresh perspectives on important social issues complete with his trademark punchlines and acid delivery. From the Maniac-produced boom-bap of “Lunch Table” to the introspective “Babe Ruth,” jun cements his place as a voice to be heard and that he’s only getting better with time. Finding some time on a cold February night, jun sits down with ProfileWild to discuss his tenth album and how his songs and albums come together to social issues like police brutality and protesting the acquittal of Eric Garner’s murderer. Another must-hear interview from PW and make sure you stay tuned after the interview for a dope 730 freestyle.

junclassic is one of the first artists I met when I got into this crazy hip-hop game back in ‘03. We met through mutual friends Ceez and E-Mid, at the time known as Manifest Destiny. jun was part of his own crew with K-Sise, the always-dope Dynamix. Over the past 11 years, I’ve had the pleasure of watching junclassic attack the microphone with a consistent passion that’s damn-near unheard of. After releasing a slew of albums and free projects, jun’s music has definitely hit the major circuits and he’s developed an organic fanbase of real heads. If you’re just catching up, though, we got’cha back, as jun runs you through some of his most memorable tracks.

This time, they’re back with a new sound that shows their diverse range of skills on both the lyrical and production tip.
In an exclusive interview, jun discusses his new album, Thinking Out Loud, as well as his creative process, the persistence he’s had to have in the game, and much more.
