Redefinition Records sat down with the multi-talented J-Zone at his Queens NY studio for a conversation about his musical roots, why he started playing drums, and the ideas behind his latest project, “Lunch Breaks”
ABOUT J-ZONE’S LUNCH BREAKS (a 45 RPM 12″)
Enter the world of J-Zone, the self-proclaimed jack of all trades / master of none (mc / producer / drummer / author). Truth be told, Zone is one of Hip Hop’s most underrated artists. The Queens NY native earned his stripes as an MC / producer with a string of unique and critically acclaimed albums in the late 90′s-2000′s on Fat Beats Records before taking a hiatus from music. Zone recently made an impact as an author, with his honest and humorous look at his experiences in the music biz in “Root For The Villain.” Since then, J has seemingly recharged his battery and jumped back into the music biz with more enthusiasm than ever, releasing a full-length album called “Peter Pan Syndrome” in 2013, and more recently, the thought provoking anti-hater anthem, “Map Rap” on 7″ vinyl. J has also been DJing popular parties from NY to Chicago including the NY nightlife staple, Mobile Mondays.
Redefinition Records & The Drum Broker are proud to bring you J-Zone’s ‘Lunch Breaks’ on vinyl & cassette formats. What is lunch breaks? It’s a compilation of original and familiar drum breaks performed and recorded by J-Zone. This break record/album is a must have for any drum aficionado, beatmaker, producer, or J-Zone fan. As a writer, producer, MC, and now Drummer, the “Chief Chinchilla” has earned himself a cult following that deserves nothing less than full attention.
These are must have drums, especially for sampling producers, DJs and production enthusiasts. Includes 9 bonus tracks not available on the digital version.

Mobb Deep’s Havoc is currently readying his upcoming album, 13 Reloaded, for a November release date, and today, he delivers the first single and video from the project with “Dirt Call.” In the John Katehis-directed video, Havoc ventures into the basement of a police crime scene before the booming production kicks in and Havoc begins to unleash his menacing rhymes.
The album, which is entirely produced by Havoc himself, will feature 10 brand new tracks on the standard version and four additional cuts on the deluxe copy, both of which will be available on iTunes and other major digital retailers on November 18. Additionally, Havoc is offering fans the opportunity at the deluxe bundle of the project, which will include the album, a producer kit, all of the instrumentals, and accapella vocals from the project. The deluxe bundle is currently available for pre-order right now, as is the album on iTunes here.
