We linked with Louisiana artist J Bridges and got to know more about him. Get to know him below
Where you from?
I’m originally from a small town in Louisiana called Bogalusa but I’ve been living in Baton Rouge for 11 years
How did you get your start in music?
I had to write a poem for class in 6th grade and the teachers thought it was really good for a kid my age.
They entered it in a bunch of poetry contests and stuff. After that i started making rhymes to beats. After hurricane Katrina i moved to Fort Worth and met a nigga who chopped and screwed songs and sold em.. he put to Sony acid program on my computer and i started recording songs. So it started from there.
How long have you been making it?
I’ve been recording since 2005
Who are your influences?
My old head influences are pac, wayne, master p, the hot boys, pimp c, lil boosie and webbing..
I’m influenced by the migos, lil durk, and future,drake and meek when it comes to the new stuff.
What motivates you?
I get motivated when i see another rapper come from out the blue and they just thrive. When i see someone with my same passion winning.. i know i can make it happen too.
What are you currently working on?
As of now i got a song called “Dat way” dropping soon with an artist from Baton Rouge named Sherwood Marty. I’m goin to drop a mixtape after that called “Harder”
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I’m 5 years i wanna have artists under me. Maybe do a few acting roles. Have a clothing line. I don’t want to just be a rapper forever. I wanna be a business mogul like jay z.
What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
Hip hop today is crazy.. it’s some good stuff but alot of these dudes are only know ln for gimmicks. The hip hop is turning into a circus. Artists will swallow their pride to get noticed. That’s not my style .
