Generally, when a Hip Hop Rap artist attacks ‘real’ subjects with their tracks, there’s a subsequent lack of hype from the beat. But J Faith made no compromise with his latest single “Distractions” which was polished to absolute perfection by producer 8-BZA.
With catchy lyrical hooks and a potently high-octane EDM beat, it won’t be long before you join me in agreement that J Faith is one of the most exciting up and coming Hip Hop artists around right now. For someone with a particular penchant for meter and rhyme, the tight lyrics resonate like spoken word poetry, only J Faith adds plenty of flavour to his charismatically instantly accessible lyrical style. The lyrics run through pretty much everything that’s wrong in our 21st century society in under 4 minutes. If that’s not a mark of achievement, I don’t know what is.
