I’ve had the pleasure of knowing John for a little over a year and as he gears up for Renaissance Boy, he releases a new song that I actually heard live while hosting The Alley V. Mediocre is a tribute to the feeling that many of us may have sometimes where it comes to our self-confidence and that we don’t feel as adequate with regards to where we visualize ourselves down the road with regards to ourselves or when we’re with someone. For John, the follow-up to Inner City Kids is one that continues that theme of his artistry that would appear to be sullen, but it can relate to a lot of people. The vocal support by Pheona smooths it out, and the hook is catchy. I can’t wait to hear what else he has cooking up because his style isn’t just one-dimensional. Stay tuned.
