Behind James Hamiltons Deluxe Album

How has the reaction to your project been so far?

Tbh my reaction to it was good I feel like I’m getting better with music everyday.


How long did it take to make your project from start to finish, recording-wise? 

Recording wise I would took me weeks or longer only because I wanted to make sure the tracks are perfect.


What kind of ‘sound’, production wise, did you have in your mind, prior to entering the studio?

Entering the Studio I wanted to make my own wave and my own sound. I feel like nowadays artists don’t have their own sound.


What kind of input did the producer have during the process

And are you pleased with the final outcome? (sound – production wise) my producer which is my brudda AT, his method and the way he does it is just amazing that’s all I can say.


Please inform us about your favourite songs and lyrical highlights and why? 

I got so many favorite songs, but my most recent has to be black forever when I say thanks to the most high that will always be my lyrical highlight because at the end of the day the most high has always been blessing us.


Any overall theme of mood that you’re trying to capture with the project?

The overall theme of mood that I’m trying to bring with this project is that I want it to have versatile vibes.

Does your vision for coming up with music get affected at all by time? 

Nah when I do music I always be happy or even on bad days I always like to vent through my music.


Are there any ‘crazy’ behind the scenes stories from these sessions that you can share with us? 

 It’s one story I got when I was at the studio with my producer and it was a whole misunderstanding and police ended up coming because they thought someone was trying to rob the place which we weren’t. Then I almost got arrested over a misunderstanding.


How would you describe the sound of your tape to any potential new fan?

  One way I can describe my album to a new fan is that my album is versatile and has different melodies.


Who are your influences and heroes? (music-wise)

My influences are E40 and Mac Dre when I used to live in Oakland I remember listening to E40 and Mac Dre they were the Pioneers of the music in my eyes.
