Flash J Interview

HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
Flash J. Well, I was inspired by the martyrs like Grandmaster Flash and how he innovated the rap game in his own way. That’s what I want to accomplish, just bringing my own feel to the music world. Something that you can vibe to forever.

HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Flash J. It stems from my love for life living it on a high, not necessarily drugs. Just general ones like an accomplishment and that euphoric feeling you get when things fall through as you planned. Or just making the right networking choices and to know I’m doing this myself is even better!

HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Flash J. I would say finding a balance, and that’s because you have to still give so much attention to your family as well without them feeling neglected or less loved.
I would say my greatest attribute is my creativity in going outside my comfort zone dealing with different producers who have different sounds. That just adds so much versatility to what it is I bring.

HCM. What are your plans for the near future?
Flash J. Dropping a few more singles one will be at the beginning of next year entitled “Gimme”. Then I will be dropping another “EP” at the end of March 2021 “Mad Dawg” & April 2021 “4For20: Session 2” so be on the lookout for those!

HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Flash J. My fam of course!
All the producers & engineers I work with and have in the past without experience from them I don’t think I would be this far along with things.
Also to the most high for giving me the opportunity everyday to share my gift.
