More Stones Throw today: Jonwayne is back announcing a new project called Jonwayne Is Retired. There’s been little word from the producer-emcee since his last project Rap Album One, but now we get the first track from his project called “Minerals & Gems” and it comes in visual form.

With a bold, slippery bass leading the main backdrop, the song takes Jonwayne underwater and bubbling through his slicing raps. While that’s his voice we hear, we’re seeing Haley Joel Osment (Sixth Sense — he also gets producer credit) battle himself as he digging for minerals and arguing with his underwater counterpart.

Jonwayne Is Retired EP is being released through Dad Vibe and comes next Tuesday and has five tracks (one of which has an Anderson .Paak feature!). Pre-order over at iTunes and watch the video below:

    Uhhh that’s not Jon under the water… It’s child actor turned adult Waldo, Haley Joel Osmondt. It kinda makes it even more badass. Jon is the kind of rapper to do GOD KNOWS what and all of a sudden HJO in his latest video, weird, crazy, Jon.

      Sorry for the misunderstanding but I did point that out in the next sentence. I meant Jonwayne was taken underwater – like his music. Woops!

        Yeah I figured that’s what you meant, I should have read better. Hehe.
