Californian born producer and hip-hop artist J LNDN dropped his debut single ‘Like Me’ drawing influence from Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar and Jaden Smith.
The young emcee began his musical career as a teenager when he was living in London saying: “I slowly started attempting to rap/ freestyle from 15 years old. My friends and I would always link up after school just to spit some bars. Nobody was taking it seriously, but it was fun.” After being brought an electronic drum pad, J began making beats and started learning how to mix and master tracks. Over the years he had established himself as a producer for other artists.
Having grown up in a middle-class household and lived in cities across the world, J states how his inspiration doesn’t come from a place of hate or criminal behaviour like a lot of hip-hop artists. Instead, he wants to help people think outside the box. When explaining ‘Like Me’ and his motivation, J said: “I make my music for real people. Music that people can party to, can chill out to, and can use it as therapy to deal with their inner issues.”
With tracks addressing race, mental health issues and drug abuse in the music industry in the pipeline, J LNDN is certainly the one to keep an eye on…check him out below…
