If you have ever met St. Louis native and Lampmode Recording artist J'son, you would know that he is one very passionate guy. Whether its having hour long debates about doctrine or relaying instructions at his own video shoot, J'son throws every ounce of himself into what hes doing. Who is Json? Maybe youve heard him on one of Flames four albums. Maybe youve heard him on '13 letters' or any of the other Reach Records projects. His listeners have been fortunate benefactors of this creative zeal on his past albums 'The Seasoning' and 'Life on Life,' and now with his forthcoming third album he is ready to push the envelope even further. I recently sat down with J'son during a video shoot to talk about his new label and the upcoming album.
'Chronicles of an X-Hustler' dropped in August of 2009. The album received critical acclaim and debuted Number 4 on the iTunes Hip Hop chart between Fabolous 'Loso's Way' and Lil Waynes 'The Carter III.' This was quite an achievement for an independent artist but Thisl isnt done yet. It is certain to be another hot summer as he gets ready to hit the road with k-Drama, Pro, and Json on the Urban Missionary Tour. Rapzilla recently caught up with Thisl after his video shoot for Youre the One to talk record sales, inner-city outreach, and how monopoly can help build Christian community.
