DL Jones isn't the first name that comes to mind when one thinks of Detroit hip hop. Hell, it's not even the second or third. But with his new album, Wasted Talent, Jones has a shot at something more than just being another Detroit also-ran.The album is his first — but it's a pretty perfect document of Detroit life, especially the life of one trying to launch a music career. It's a little sad, a little mad but as soulful as it is hard, and as hopeful as it is as scared. It's still willing and able to get the cash to go out and have fun on a Saturday night, even though it's got enough heaviness on it to ponder on Sunday afternoon.
