Flint Rapper Jon Connor, Will Ferrell and Shade 45 Radio



Any rapper creative enough to borrow his stage name from the Terminator movie is alright with me. Flint lyricist Jon Connor, who've we've given love to on this blog before, continues to impress me every time I hear him rap. Whether it's from the Vinnie Chase mixtape he released last year or catching him live at SXSW this past March, the guy is good at what he does and hopefully he can continue to highlight his hometown of Flint in a good way while making a push to become a nationally recognized artist.

He released stopped by Statik Selektah's Shade 45 radio show and freestyled over a song by comedian Will Farrell. Yes, you just read that right. Check out the video as Connor actually does two verses over two different tracks and reminds people that he is the real deal.
