“Who’s this guy?” you may ask. He goes by the name James Flow (@JamesFlow_ ). The Toronto based Brampton rapper who turned 23 on the 9th of February is a cat on fire. He’s been passionate about music ever since he first heard Usher’s “You got it bad”.
And began to take music very seriously when he came across Biggie’s “Ready to die” album. James flow is an ardent song writer and he creates every track he releases from scratch. This means he handles recording, sound engineering, photography and videography.
James created OverFlow because he was fed up with the all the negative and toxic things in his life. So he decided to make a change. Throughout the change and constant letting go of things that didn’t help him, he created OverFlow while meeting the producer named Ovrthro.
The title of the album came about because James and Ovthro really tried to match each others energy when it came to the music. James also found out that His mother’s great grandfather used to work in the church in Jamaica and was also named James (Making James Flow the James the 3rd).
A 6 month drought in Jamaica was occurring in the late 1800’s so James went to the Church in Kingston and prayed all day. 24 hours after it rained constantly for 7 days. James Flow didn’t discover this until after finishing the EP so it almost feels like the entire EP was meant to be. This guy is DIVINE!
ABOUT “NO TIME”
Being a artist his whole life, he had no choice but to learn to see things differently. He used think it was selfish to take his own time as a priority over other things. He realized around the age of 12 taht he needed to make time for himself in order to enjoy him time with others.
“You realize After a while you must to prioritize yourself unless you’re okay with finishing last. That’s the point of this video. You can’t complain when you finish last if you’re wasting time or not prioritizing it. People don’t have to understand your priorities, but you better make sure they respect them and your time” – JamesFlow
