J the Man
J the Man
There is no other way I can put it. Whether it be in production, lyricism or subject matter, I’m going to kick that ass. That’s my mentality on every verse, every hook and every song.” Existing in a lane of Hip Hop that is all his own, J THE MAN’s music is based upon a plateau of coolness. “I grew up cool, I’ve always thought coolly and kept a cool manner about myself.
I take my natural coolness, I sprinkle in my southern roots and then I add a crispy layer of lyricism. That’s how I make my music. At the end of the day, I want my fans to be like, ‘Hell yeah, that shit was cool’. ” With a smooth delivery reminiscent of Jay-Z and the cleverness of a mature Lil Wayne mixed with the southern influences of Master P and UGK, J THE MAN’s music embodies the raw passion of Hip Hop and possesses a poetic quality rivaled by the likes of Langston Hughes and Zora Neal Hurston.
“It’s a blessing to be recognized for your work. When I first started out I was washing my clothes in the bathtub. Now, I can send them shirts to the cleaners. It‘s a good life.” Possessing a hunger driven by humble beginnings and lofty goals, J THE MAN has passed the point of having potential in the music industry and is the master of his own musical destiny.
“If I don’t get where I’m going, it’s only because I chose to go somewhere else.” In other words, J THE MAN can’t lose. http://youtu.be/TTR7kyGj4hE Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
