Three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), a new artist is featured on’s The Break. An ideal destination for fans, artists, and industry members, The Break showcases up and coming talent, giving a brief introduction on the artist or group, and highlighting some of their standout music. Each month, industry insiders will team with XXL to rate and comment on the submissions.

For the month of June, Sonny Digital—who will serve as one of three judges—checked out the section to see what yesterday’s talent (J. Pinder) had to offer. Check out his comments below.

"I like him. The first and the last videos were dope! I would work with him even though he has more of a "hip-hop" feel and it's not the the old, outdated sounding 'hip-hop' music. The sound is fresh, more modern."
