with almost eight years in nyc under my belt, i feel that i can say, with confidence, that this is a tough city to make friends in. everyone is either too busy being cool or chasing fame+fortune to be genuine and just straight up nice people. nyc is also a town full of artists. some really suck and others lack the passion to really produce great work (unlike andre wagner). luckily, the stars aligned in an epic way and put jt in my life. he has such great energy and his zeal for the things he loves makes you love him five minutes into meeting him.
the “six questions with…” series is back in 2015 as a monthly feature and i thought that the best way to kick the year off would be with my good friend and amazing artist james thigpen jr.. this kid reeeeeeally be knowin’, so get your notebooks out for all things dope according to jt!
“It’s okay to call yourself an artist, a rapper….just make sure your creator calls you that too.”
