IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
KAM JAMES: I was born and raised in Marietta, Georgia, in the North Side.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
KAM JAMES: I first started off making beats, but I’ve always really loved music since I was a child. So as I got older I got more and more into it. Understanding things more and my ear for things started to grow more and more too. I started making beats, and my friend put FL studios on my computer. I didn’t know what I was doing or how to do anything. Every day and night I would be locked up in my room watching YouTube videos and practicing, I started getting addicted. I couldn’t go a day without messing around with a beat. So one day I made up a beat and it was perfect. I was in my room hype, “Like yo somebody has to hear this and rap on it.” The beat kept playing over and over and I just started free styling off the top and I was like wow. That was hard, it shocked me at first. After that I would just start writing every day and I couldn’t leave it alone. It got so deep that I would just write for hours and I forgot all about the beats. But now I’m getting back into the producing.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
KAM JAMES: The feeling I got from writing my first rhyme to a beat was something I can never forget. I felt something I never felt before and after that I knew I wanted to do this every single day and get better and better. It’s the best feeling being able to sit back and hear your own self on a track and listen to the lyrics. It’s the best feeling being able to listen to your flow, the timing, and just study yourself. Its’ nice to make something that you actually enjoy and like. It’s addicting.
