Jamie Gatson also known as J. Tune, is a conscious artist from a small town just outside of Chicago Illinois. His goal is not only to have his music played but more importantly heard by his audience to bring awareness of our harsh reality. His music has touched his local peers, and with the proper support and resources he is confident he will touch millions. “Music is an art and every song is a blank canvas and I choose to fill each one with; potent lyrical content, honest imagery, and with a gratifying connection that leaves my listeners with an intimate impression”. Unfortunately, he hasn’t always been convinced that he controls his own destiny. In July of 2009 his childhood friend Kiwane Carrington lost his life due to a gruesome murder at the hands of a local officer. Which lead to a seemingly never ending period of rage, and depression during that time he found myself writing poems that later lead to his first single a tribute to a dear friend “One More Day” (http://youtu.be/JjbeWQlVqV0). “My goal in Hip-Hop is that I want to be the voice of my generation I want to show the world that not all rap artist talk about killing each other, drugs, money, and down grading our women. I want to connect with my supporters I want to speak for the ones that are scared to speak or just plain out won’t say anything and most of all I want to show the kids that there still are positive artist that they can look up to and the artist is actually given back and showing kids that school is cool and when you get your knowledge no one can take it from you I want to spread love”
