We had the good fortune of connecting with James Hargrove and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi James, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Self expression gives me the ability to channel my ideas and pain in a way people can relate to. When I’m performing or recording music it’s always a way to inspire.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The music I create is a celebration of life, it’s Hip Hop that expresses the struggle, uplifts and has fun. I just moved to Houston so I’m excited about the performing opportunities that are in the city, I’ve been a indie artist for years so I’m accustom to paying for things alone so it is not easy. I don’t come from money or have a mentor for guidance so what pushes me is passion and a sense of purpose. On my journey I’ve learned that no one is coming to help you but you in this life. I would like the world to know is that you should yourself, life is moving fast so you should live out your purpose.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate this shoutout to my Grandmother, without her I would not have made it this far.
