Jon Connor Puts the Finishing Touches on His Debut Album With Dr. Dre



In September of 2013, Michigan rapper Jon Connor announced that he’d signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, and though he’s released a host of tapes since then, his fans have yet to get an album. But today (March 12) he gave the world an update about what he’s been up to — and it includes finishing that album with Dre in the studio.
Fellow Aftermath artist Justus shared a picture on Instagram in the studio with Connor and Dre. The caption read “wrapping up @jonconnormusic’s debut album!”
Now that Dre has Apple Music and his Pharmacy show on Beats 1 as a platform, he can use it to push the artists on his label. Count on recent Aftermath signee Anderson .Paak to get a good look too.
.Paak actually spilled the beans that Dre has been working on new music lately. “I just got off the phone with him,” .Paak said. “He’s working right now. He’s doing a lot of work right now. I can’t really speak on it.”
It’s interesting to see how Apple Music is becoming multiple things to different artists. Part radio station, part record label, part social media, part streaming service, its use continues to evolve as the relationship between the artist and the record label develops.
Connor is a Flint native and penned a song in late January to help raise awareness about the lethal circumstances his city is up against. On Wednesday night (Mar. 2), Connor performed “Fresh Water for Flint” for the first time, joined on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore by Keke Palmer.
Either way, Connor’s new album is shaping up to be crazy. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about the project.

I've still never quite heard a project from him that I kept in rotation but overall I like what I hear from him as far as his rapping, hope he got some serious production with a focused direction on this debut

Wish it was a Mez album

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Dunno about the album, but did you check Jon Connors "Fresh Water For Flint (Ft. Keke Palmer)" track, that dropped 2 months ago?
Had it in rotation for over a month, dope track.

Wish it was a Mez album

I kinda agree.. Connor is pretty dope, but Mez is more creative and versatile, and his style is way more unique and innovative..  8)

Mez is more unique, but Connor is a better rapper
