Earlier this year Orange County MC J. King was back on Dubcnn with news that his long awaited “Next To Bat” album was nearly ready.
That material was soon followed up with the single Back On The Atlas produced by Soul Mechanixand featuring cuts by LD of Technicali Sound and within weeks a video for Back On The Atlaswas also released.
In February 2012 he was back with I’m On It featuring P. Dot over another J Steez production and hoped to release the album before the summer.
