New-Jersey based emcee J-Ness has only proven that real lyricism has not ceased. Having already gotten a co-sign from ItsBizkit, who said that J-Ness has unlimited bars, the musician is well on his way to the top! The end-goal for J-Ness is to take the hip-hop scene by storm.
J-Ness has been pushing his sound for approximately ten to twelve years. To add, he’s teamed up with his house producer A-KING, and together they’ve led a movement of other talented rap artists called “Coastwave Regime.”
His most viral record and visual to date is a song titled “Coming to Collect,” which premiered in 2018. The song sparked controversy through the underground hip-hop scene and was deemed a refreshing rendition of 50 Cent‘s hit classic, “How to Rob.”
Before this, J-Ness dropped his mixtape, Blessed With The Gift, which was hosted by ItsBizkit and featured well-known artists like Troy Ave, Fred the Godson, Tsu Surf, and Chinx. The lead single off this E.P, “Getting This Dough” ft Troy Ave, made airwaves on Power 105.1 as well as Sirius XM. A year later, J-Ness got coverage on Thisis50.com, which landed him an interview and freestyle performance on Sway In the Morning.
Currently, the New Jersey star has been pushing his first official independent album, Ain’t No Pressure, which dropped on Christmas of 2019. The 14 track effort contains original production from A-KING and Compton California’s very own Slim 400. The themes in Ain’t No Pressure explore J-Ness’s work ethic, fighting spirit, and overall artistry, to name a few. Sonically, the album crossovers between the new and old school sound. One of the tracks, “Strictly,” is a homage to Tupac‘s album, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. The acronym stands for Never Ignorant Getting Goals Accomplished.
In other J-Ness news, he sat down with the legendary DJ Kay Slay The Drama King on Shade 45. During his interview, DJ Kay Slay asked him about his upcoming releases, what he’s currently working on, his thoughts on the current music era, and musical influences. Before DJ Kay Slay complimented him on his lyricism, J-Ness said about the brand-new sound,
“We gotta get back to respecting the culture and the art form. I always think it’s wrong to chase a sound. It’s better to be authentic. Can’t nobody be you except you.”
Moving forward, expect a visual from J-Ness for his song “Strictly.” It will be conducted by Street Heat TV.
