LISTEN: Jackson Whalan Hooks Up With KRS-One On Slammin’ “From The Woods”

Jackson Whalan is an American lyricist and producer known for his high-impact rapping, music production, live performance, and collaboration. Whalan has independently released a slew of original material while touring extensively, both solo and with a live band.

Whalan is back and this time he’s linked up with legendary hip-hop architect, KRS-One, on the banging new rendition of “From the Woods.” A slide guitar sample swings through the beat as southern accents of Americana music fuse with hip-hop movement and power. KRS-One hits hard, bringing fire across the track, spitting with evocative and raw lyrical intelligence. Whalan drops a palpable and homegrown hook, setting a path for KRS-One to come back in for a quick punch to the gut before passing the torch to Whalan. Here is where we see Whalan – the up and comer – do more than just hold his own: he crushes.

“I first listened to KRS when I was a little kid starting to rap and make beats back in the day,” Whalan explained from his studio as he put the finishing touches on the collab. “He changed my life by displaying that hip-hop is something you live. I was flabbergasted when I heard his verse on my track.”
