Bham Music Blog Presents:J-Walk {Exclusive Interview}

Bham Music Blog talks with Alabama rapper J-Walk,check out today.With a solid intenet buzz & a strong following J-Walk lets readers know whats going on with him & why he'll still be Laffin going into 2012.Read below.



1.How is everything going?

Everything good homie, just grindin hard in the studio right now finishing up this FREE mixtape "iWreck"....bout to start on the album!

2.Tell fans how long you been doing music on a serious level?

I have been writing all my life, but i been goin hard and doin music on a serious level since DEC. 2006, i'm 5 years strong in the game!

3.Tell fans name of your label & what all you do?

The name of my label is PAPER BOI ENTERTAINMENT. I'm the CEO/BOSS!!! I'm also an AWARD WINNING RECORDING ARTIST!!!
As far as what I do at the label, I just basically call the shots and have FINAL say so on ALL situations. I also do graphics and executive produce for some of the artist that record at PAPER BOI STUDIOS. I also have a few artist that I'm bout to put on/out, we just gettin started 4real! Shout out 2 my cousin/my partner/my brother DJ WHO? (@DJWHO205), he is my full time engineer & he is also the Co-CEO of Paper Boi ENT....he's been there since day ONE and has supported me in everything I do! And this is my BLOOD COUSIN (our mommas are sisters) so this goes deeper than music, thats my brother til the end!



4.How hard has it been being a white male coming from Alabama doing rap music?

If I said it wasnt hard, I'd be lying. It's already hard enough being from ALABAMA because we been the underdog since day 1....but remember, EVERY DOG HAS ITZ DAY!!! As far as being white, yeah it makes it harder because EVERYTHING U SAY ON EVERY SONG IS ANALYZED TO THE FURTHEST POINT & PEOPLE TRY EVERY WAY POSSIBLE TO DISCREDIT YOU AND SAY U "AINT REAL" & DIDNT "LIVE IT" AND ALL THAT BS....but as far as ME personally, I aint never really had that problem as far as the "REAL" factor goes. If you REALLY KNOW ME AND REALLY KNOW ABOUT MY PAST & MY PRESENT, then there are no questions! I put my life on these beats. I put the things I've seen 1st hand on these beats. I speak for them people in these streets thats gotta do WHATEVER IT TAKE TO SURVIVE! Like we say round here....BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!!



5.Whats name of up coming project you have in the works?

I'm currently putting the finishing touches on my FREE DIGITAL MIXTAPE entitled "iWreck"! It's just some flows over jacked beats and a few originals that I'm wreckin on! It's for the fans, something FREE for them to show my appreciation to them for sticking by me and still ridin with me!
I had a few legal issues that set me back in 2008/2009 that prevented me from dropping my "WELCOME 2 THE WHITE HOUSE" album! The hype surrounding my 2008 single "LAFFIN" was probably enough for me to make it in this game. I recieved ALOT of offers & calls, but at the end of the day the legal situation I was going through and the way I was being targeted by local law enforcement as well as the feds shutting down my shows and showing up at all my shows, I BELIEVE ultimately cost me a record deal at that time! BUT I AM BACK and I have a 2nd chance at this and I feel like its ALL OR NOTHIN'!!!!!!!!!! So with that being said, you are hearing it here 1st.....there is NO MORE "Welcome 2 The White House" album, the title has OFFICIALLY been changed to "ALL OR NOTHIN" and the music is on a WHOLE 'NOTHA LEVEL!!!!!!!!! Also be lookin for that "MR. 205" DVD!!!!!!!!!

6.When can the streets expect that?

The mixtape will be droppin top of the year and it will be up for 100% completely FREE DOWNLOAD online! (J-Walk website, datpiff.com, etc)
The album is looking like a spring time/spring break release! (March/April) It will be in stores, online and in the streets!
DVD - SUMMER 2012






7.What motivates you to keep doing music on a daily basis?

The FANS! I have a solid hardcore fan base that supports the sh*t outta me....& I THANK them 4 that!
Also the STRUGGLE, the GRIND & MY FAMILY/MY TEAM/MY SQUAD! I look at it like this, I can have everything and have money and all that shi*t, but if my FAMILY & my TEAM aint straight and I can't put them on and share it with them, then why am I really doing this??????????????????
I think Rick Ross said it best: "A Boss is One Who Guarantee We Gon Eat!"


8.Who are some of the artist in Alabama in you'd like to work with in future?

I've worked with damn near everybody in Alabama, but if I had to pick a few I'd probably say: YelaWolf (we actually were planning a song prior to him signing w/Eminem & Shady Records), 6 Tre G (he's like the Alabama version of Young Jeezy to me, you dont just HEAR him, you actually FEEL what he talkin bout, I recognize that he is 100 and I respect/salute that) & I know this is "out there" lol but how dope would it be to do a record with da DIRTY BOYZ and have THE LAST MR. BIGG on the hook??????? lol


9.What other things does J-Walk having going on outside of rap music?
