We recently got to kick it with  22 year old @james.wav, a rapper/singer hailing from Queens, who believes in aliens, free thinkers and creating.
Listen to “Skylight” a track off his debut album “Life is Wild” while reading through some q+a’s down below.

Who do you most draw inspiration from?

Freethinkers. People who find their own path to get from point A to infinity.

Where would you like to hear your songs?

We got this song on the album called “Soda Pop”. It needs to be on Stranger Things. Put your boy on.

Favorite midnight snack?

Them sweet potato yams.

If you weren’t an artist, what would you be doing?

In that alternate reality, I think I’d probably be a gardener of exotic fruits & herbs.

Do you believe aliens are here on earth?

I can think of at least 3 I know on a first name basis.What place(s) in NYC identifies you the most?

I’d have to say Bayside, or anywhere in Jackson Heights. Queens get the money.

When is the best time to start your creative process?

Yesterday. As long as you’re feeling something, anything, you should be creating.

What’s after “Life is Wild”?

I’m just going to keep creating content that I love. I’m here for the long run, so remember the name.
