Hip-Hop Artist James Da Barber doesn’t waste any time… If he wants something he will go and get it! The southern style rapper began making music at 25 years old. James Da Barber knew he had something new and different to bring into the industry. In fact, his first track he wrote was titled “Believe it and Receive it”, a motto he lives by. The independent artist who was born and raised in Meridian, Mississippi, is known for his barbering skills but is ready to shake up the music industry!
James Da Barber’s sound is inspired by the music style from Louisiana, Atlanta, and Mississippi! Previously he has been compared to rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T, who is also from his hometown. Aside from barbing, Music is his biggest passion.
“Music is everything to me.” He revealed, “Music always gives me that balance I need. I wake up to music, and I go to bed to music, it is definitely a therapy for me.”
James Da Barber’s “Go and Get it” attitude comes from his uncle who he had a close relationship with. When his uncle passed, he left James some advice that he lives up to everyday.
“Right before he died he said “If you see what you want, GO GET IT” and that’s the code that I live by.” He explained, “In so many words he told me “I wasted my whole life procrastinating on things I should have done, but now it’s too late. So, I don’t wait for time, time waits for me.”
The Mississippi Rapper hopes to inspire people to do their best in life. Overall, he hopes to impact the youth and young adults with his music that he writes to uplift one another. He thanks the bible for reminding him who he is and what he can do, especially when his mind tells him he can’t.
Currently, James Da Barber is collaborating with Female Rapper(3Dnatee) and working with platinum producer (Twysted Genius) who have also worked with artists like (Lil Baby, City Girls, Future, and many more). His next single dropping next month titled, “LIT” will be a preview of what we could expect on his EP that he will be dropping on Thanksgiving!
