The DMV sound continues to dominate the industry. In doing so, the arrival of Joony and his 11-track LP, SHITUMSS is taking the music world by storm! The world has been Joony’s oyster since the success of his standout verse on Brent Faiyaz’s RIAA Gold-certified album Wasteland and his critically-acclaimed project, Pretty in Black.
The arrival of his highly anticipated album from the striving star captures the essence of the sound. The signature sound that helped shape him into the well-rounded creative he is today. With many critics stating that the DMV characteristic sound is too gritty to go mainstream, Joony and his in-house team of frequent collaborators rise to the occasion to champion the regional sound.
The Silver Spring, Maryland-raised MC has teased more 808-heavy recordings on majority of his melodic projects, but this time he went all the way! Joony has constructed a project that not only symbolizes his community but also encompasses the spirit of being “On Shit”. Which means real motion and no performative performances. In addition to production from other DMV natives like Mannyvelli, Spizzle, Dawg Servin, Big Weigh, Turk, Trill800, and 4Days.
Joony Speaks On SHITUMSS Significance
Furthermore, SHITUMSS is a realistic and compelling listening experience created in trapped-out basements throughout the DMV. When reflecting on his latest release, Joony goes on to say:
“We want to show you what we’ve worked on for the last two years. Everyone is from the DMV, and these songs were all made in trapped-out vibes. This is a representation of the area. The DMV. We called it SHITUMSS because we’re on shit. Encompassing the vibes from the basement.”
Despite just stepping into the spotlight, Joony is set to shoulder the weight of bringing the DMV’s traditional sound to the forefront of the music business. With well-known musicians including as Lil Uzi Vert, Stunna 4 Vegas, and others adopting the distinctive flow in their tracks, it is only right that a DMV-bred talent ushers in the region’s moment.
As a result, sizzling singles such as: “All Over the House“, “Shitumss“, and “Keisha” are hard-hitting bangers that will undoubtedly blow a speaker or two. Nonetheless, Joony continues to provide his fans with the melodic moments. In fact, they have come to adore on “Jagged Edge” and “###Trending“. Don’t believe me?
