Late Pass #12: Jack Herrera - Retro Futuristic (Futuristo)

While on tour promoting Cool Relax, Jon B formed a group with two of his back-up singers, Dominiquinn and Silky Deluxe, named Jack Herrera collectively. A full album, titled Retro Futuristc or Futuristo, was put together, but never officially released. However, two tracks from the project did see release. Free To Believe appeared on the soundtrack to the film Light It Up and High Off You appeared on Red Star Sounds, Vol. 1: Soul Searching. The project was filled with the smoothness you came to expect from Jon B mixed with a hip hop vibe. It also featured appearances from Will I Am and Black Thought.

I love "High Off You" and have been trying to figure out who Jack Herrera is for the longest. Thanks for finally solving the puzzle. Please post more.

Rahdu, this song is called "Silver & Gold." Not "Say the Word." It's been mislabeled for years now. :(
