Within the underbelly of Hip-hop, there are many factors at play. From the beats that create the foundation, to the rhymes that define each track, there are very few players that can methodically orchestrate it all. Enter: J57. For the last 10 years, this Long Island native has been honing his craft at beat making, production, and even spitting on the mic. From his affiliation with the infamous Brown Bag Allstars, to the growing number of indie hip-hop artists he’s produced for, this is one artist (in the truest sense of the word) that’s cementing a notable legacy in the game.
I first found out about J through his work with Brown Bag and was not only drawn to his flow, but also his extremely captivating beats. He’s currently hard at work producing his & Koncept’s first group album together among many other upcoming projects. Be sure to follow J on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and you can also find all of his latest material here. Stay tuned for an exclusive interview dropping within a few days!
