Oreo Jones is that pair of Air Jordans too scuffed up to wear in public, but you do it anyway because they still feel right.
Hailing from Indianapolis, Jones’ footprints are all over Midwest hip-hop. And in a sea of bleak imitation and style, Jones is a beautiful yacht confidently gliding to his destination, telling stories that demand ears. Jones cut his teeth on hardcore and punk rock in small town Indiana before he delved into hip-hop. But don’t doubt his allegiance to pure hip-hop. Jones spent most of 2015 organizing the biggest single-day hip-hop festival ever to occur in the state of Indiana, Chreece. Currently Oreo is the sound artist in residence over at Big Car’s Listen Hear sound art gallery.
