DRIP DROPS of HIP-HOP from CHATTANOOGA
By Sammy Lowdermilk
Orion Hunter & Mike Jet are an impressive duo. Seeing them perform a few times, you definitely leave feeling like you experienced something special. I’ve had people walk up to me after performances asking who this R&B and hip-hop duo was on numerous occasions. They are definitely on my radar as two talented artists whose sky is the limit as to what they could achieve.
Their newest single, “Come Thru,” is a perfect reflection of both the talent and potential. Orion Hunter’s voice is as smooth as silk and his cadence is mesmerizing. Before you know it, either your head or your body is moving as the song cascades across Uncle Duke’s top-notch production. And then…
Mike Jet comes in and carries the song to an even better place with his flow. The lyricist is a perfect match with Orion Hunter. Remember back in the early 2000’s when the winning formula became the pairing of a dope voice with a hot flow? This is that same winning formula and I’m not sure I’ve heard this type of pairing coming out of Chattanooga, especially recently.
So lucky for us, this won’t stop here. Orion Hunter has an album, “The Heist,” coming out on Valentine’s Day and Mike Jet has a solo project dropping in May. But we’ll be blessed with a joint project from the duo called, “Have 2,” which drops on April so be on the lookout for more music!
