  1. Who were your first and strongest musical influences that you can remember?

JChampion: my last few interviews I did with other publications, I kind of mentioned some of the same names, but honestly I’ve had so many artist musically touch my soul, so just to name a few ill start with Stack bundles, his hunger really motivated me like no other, he built his name from the ground up and created a movement that had people screaming SQQQQQQuad Up!!!!!!! Worldwide, The next one on my list is Tupac, I swear I thought I was his biggest fan, I listened to everything he put out I would go into music stores and just jam out to his stuff, and when his untimely demised occurred I was on the hunt for every bootleg Makaveli that dropped lol

  1. What do you think separates you from the crowd of artists emerging right now?

JChampion:  My business techniques, I not only know how to create a good product, I also know how to market it and sale it, and I feel a lot of artist right now lack on that part and are more concerned with just trying to be heard, they think just because your song is dope its gonna blow, and in some cases that’s a fact but in more cases the fact is you got to work hard to get your music to the right ears, its more than just uploading and sharing links, there’s a whole Algorithm of dynamics of just pure trial and error strategies that have to be put in motion, it’s a lot of crossing T’s and dotting I’s involved.

  1. Do you currently have a preferred song in your catalog, and why is it special to you?

JChampion:  It’s a song Called ‘’Rain’’ it’s a dedication song that I made for my little Brother Dom who was murdered, I literally shed tears during the creation of that song.

  1. What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to endure in your life or music so far?

I know God got me…. And musically, I would just say learning the business, and understanding a mouth will say anything. I just listen, learn, filter, and try my best, what you desire desires you.

JChampion:  Lyricism and substance I want the listener to hear the hunger and feel the passion, every time.

  1. Do you produce the beats and write all the lyrics on your songs or do you collaborate with outside sources in any of these cases?

JChampion: I do not physically make the beat, but I articulate my vision and my producers always abstract it from my brain like they can hear what I’m hearing in my head, big Shouts out to My Partner in Crime 24Seven, and when it comes to writing I write every letter in the bar, always have always will, I’m all the way down with ghost writing for someone I’m just not going to have someone do it for me.

  1. If you had the opportunity to change one thing about how the music business works right now, what would that be?
