Wow what a weekend…talk about emotional rollercoaster…I mean really.
From Friday’s attacks & ruthless killings in Norway to the passing of Amy Winehouse on Saturday…I am deeply saddened.

Today’s feature is: James Russell
1) What do you do & how well do you do it?
Well, I’m a hip hop artist who’s growing with every track, I used to just rap over random beats but there are so many people doing that these days I decided to try my hand at producing my own stuff, which I have done with my most recent mixtape. It’s created more of a buzz about my music and people see it as a positive thing as I’m putting more effort in than the usual every day rapper! I think that compared to when I first started out, I’m lightyears ahead, I think if you check it out every song I release is stronger than the last, I’ve been doing it just shy of a year now and not to blow my own horn, I’m pretty darn good!
2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?
I see myself having regular gigs which pay the bills at least, therefore I’m hoping to expand even more than releasing free mixtapes for everyone so I can actually live off music. I doubt I’ll still be living in Middlesbrough as the scene here is too small, unless I make one! I’m already on iTunes with a previous EP, but I’d hope to be making a living from music therefore taking it to the next level.
3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?
When i was about 11 years old I was obsessed with the band “The Offspring” up until my brother gave me The Eminem Show album, I started to get obsessed with that because of the lyrics, I remember looking in The Offspring’s album booklet and seeing about 3 words per line, then Eminem’s had masses and masses of ingenious lyrics with amazing rhyme schemes and I was hooked for weeks, I just loved the words and how cleverly they rhymed it completely baffled me! That’s when I discovered The Slim Shady LP and the Marshall Mathers LP, which led me to start writing songs for the first time ever.
4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?
I’d take away the concept of greed (I know it’s impossible), because there are too many people suffering in the world due to the fact that there are a small number of people who capitalise on the poor people’s welfare to make money even though they have plenty. I think too many greedy corporation bosses need to change their ideals as it is harming the world and the people in it more and more every day, and they know it. Pure evil in my eyes. But failing that I’d like to own a record label and a studio and make an album a month. Haha!
5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)
It’s brilliant! I’ve been checking it regularly for a while now and it is fantastic to keep up to date with not only you and what you’re up to, but with fresh new artists in this section, really is brilliant, keep it up!
James’ song selection of the day is:
