On “Prodigal Daughter,” Canton Jones writes to a woman who was driven into prostitution. Like the story of the prodigal son, “the entire mixtape communicates that no matter how far you’ve gone, you aren’t too far to come home,” says Canton Jones.
Canton Jones has been professionally recording music since 2002, but has been singing and performing his whole life. His artistic style comes from a diverse background which includes—but is not limited to—being part of a gospel quartet as well as being raised by hip hop. This rich landscape of influences adds an unparalleled depth and diversity to his music.
On Lust, Drugs & Gospel, Canton Jones delivers another strong project with R&B and Hip Hop naturally woven together. Fans can look forward to features from artists Bizzle, D-Maub, Milliyon, Mouthpiece, & more as well as production by the legendary Mel-Man (Dr. Dre, Eminem, Gucci Mane).
