Editors’ Notes Once a five-year-old piano prodigy, J. Dash spent his childhood immersed in classical music and his teenage years playing jazz and blues. Now a young adult, he's jumped into the pop-rap world. "WOP," his breakout single featuring Flo Rida, stands for "With Out Prejudice." It's racked up more than 30 million views and has positioned him as an extremely buzzworthy rookie. Tabloid Truth is Dash's debut album and finds the multitalented newcomer doing his thing over 11 radio-ready tracks, nearly all of which could be hit singles. With his nerd-chic look, Kanye-esque flow, relentlessly catchy production, and mostly inoffensive, PG-rated lyricism, there's little doubt that he could be huge. "Transformer" sounds like The Neptunes backing Fabolous, and "Take It Hard" could easily be a Lupe Fiasco outtake. "Dance All Night," "Fresh," and "Questions" are other standouts.
