Welcome back to another edition of Indie Wednesdays!
This week we present an emcee originally from Cameron, NC who goes by the name of J Alston.
Not long ago he made moves to Atlanta to further his dreams and now he's about to drop napalm with his LP later this month!
"We Good" the title of his leading single featuring "Rashine LoKey" is a melodic groove complimented with flows that cut through the track like a hot knife to butter, real smooth.
With a drake-esque hook and its mesmerizing production by "Kid Class", you are guaranteed to get pulled into a zone!
We decided to link up with "J" and ask him a few questions to learn more about his beginnings, his move to the "A", and his new album!
Check out our Q&A below! ...READ MORE

And before you ask, yes the title is indeed 'Proper Lube' and NO... not saying anymore about that here. Watch the vid.

Happiness is a cause, not a result. Which explains why there are plenty of people who appear to have every reason for happiness, but are in fact miserable. And there are others who seem to have no reason to be happy, yet they are as happy as can be.
There are many people that find themselves waiting for a reason before allowing themselves to be happy. The problem is that reason will likely never come. But when you find yourself able to be happy even though there's no reason for it, pretty soon an abundance of reasons will start to appear.
When you choose to smile, there will be much to smile about. When you choose to be thankful, there will be plenty of reasons for being thankful. Remember that happiness is a cause, not a result. Don't make your happiness conditional. When you do, you'll limit it and drive it away.
So instead of waiting for happiness to flow toward you, let it flow from you. Such happiness will never fail to find its own very good reasons. After all, happine ...READ MORE

...Much like jazz... they have no rhythm or no rhyme
Unexpected improv patterns
Impromptu peaks, plateaus and valleys
I even dig the darkest places
Like cognac and live blues in sexy night spot spaces
Tucked into a cozy booth
Where shadows hide your inner truth
Thoughts come in waves of depth and intensity
Much like the soul stirring bass of R&B
And ideas come and go in droves
Few settle in to make themselves at home
Yeah, your mind is like sweet music
And I love the way you use it
Not of sound mind some might say
But I love all of the sounds you play
An infinitely intelligent instrument
Playing wisdom and words and wondrous whit
I see you...
And I get you
Unlike most mere mortals do
I hear you... mentally
No need to explain verbally
Exuding and executing creative mastery
I'm so attracted to your mind that I can't get you out of mine...
Perhap ...READ MORE
