Even though Eddy Curry led the Bulls through one of its grimmer eras, he’s not the most frequently referenced Bulls player. But aren’t there enough MJ songs already? Today, Chicago’s Caleb James, who’s part of 2013 all-star crew Save Money, champions the former NBA center on the first single from his upcoming mixtape, The Jones 2.0. Save Money members—like Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa—tend to get painted as Chicago’s “nice guys,” but James sounds tough over sinister, rattling production from duo Nez & Rio, who’ve worked with Schoolboy Q and King L (recall: Shoutout Nez & Rio, this beat is so stupido). James’ The Jones 2.0 is due out next February.
