It’s been almost a year since J-Son released the track “Lookie Lookie” and announced his debut album “Never Half Stepping” and next week it’s finally time for the release! On the album, which is a dedication to his mother, J-son will tell us his story about the journey from the streets in Brasil to the life he lives today as an artist in Sweden. It will feature artists such as Masayah, Million Stylez and GTICY and includes production from Saska Becker, K-One, Jason Gill, Addeboy vs Cliff and Filthy.
He recently released a trailer for the album and even though I was a bit skeptical when I first heard about the trailer I have to admit that it definitely got me interested in the album. The trailer is directed by Tobias Nordquist from Ragtime-Film and the album will be released through Same Blood ent. and distributed by Sony Music.

J-Son released a trailer for his yet unreleased single “Head In The Sky” last night. It’s the forth and last single and will be released the 14th of October before the record “Never Half Steppin” drops via Same Blood Entertainment and EMI Music Publishing.
J-Son had a busy summer after releasing his first single “Lookie Lookie” which lead to various performances at festivales around Sweden and heavy radio rotation. He also opened for artists such as Joe Budden, Musiq Soulchild and Lady Gaga.
Personally I am split about J-Son, but still curious about the album. I guess I got high expectations on it and crossing my fingers that he won’t go and do like Lazee did after his epic mixtape “It Is What It Is (host Dj Kayslay) – drop a boring record (Setting Standard) that is.
J-Son made a name for himself last year when he released the track “Lookie Lookie” , soon followed by “Pretty Boy” which showed that he was definitely an artist to pay attention to. Recently he has been laying some hooks and verses on tracks by 50 cent, Jennifer Brown and the latest track he appeared on, “Loser” by Yo_Dah & Tommy Lee, featured appearances by Lil Wayne, Spark Dawg, Tyga, Joell Ortiz, Smitty & Sum 41. On top of this he and producer Baby Supreme form the production team No Braggy Boyz which recently did a song for the Japanese pop group W-inds.
After all of these guest appearances it’s now finally time for J-son to release a solo track from his upcoming album “Never Half Stepping” which is due in fall. “My Window” is produced by Addeboy vs Cliff and with back vocals by Yaiya. “My Window” features a very different sound from the two earlier singles and it really showes that he want’s to continue to grow as an artist. He says this about the sound on “My Window”:
“I never want to stop shocking people and I will keep switching it up, because I don’t just see me as a rap artist, I want to get as much as possible out of music, and music is so much more than just rap.”
