J-Carter is based out of New Jersey. He believes hip-hop should focus on great lyrical content, tight beats, and mind blowing hooks. He has been writing lyrics since the age of 13 enhancing his vocabulary along the way to be a better lyricist. His musical influences are motivated by a conglomerate of hiphop artists that have came on the world scene the past 30 years. His music is a blend of an old school feel mixed in with the new contemporary feel of hiphop, but he strives to maintain his own style and voice to separate himself from the playing field.
Although, Time to Shine is his first album he's releasing to the public,he has been in the rap game for quite some time. It was only now that the realization of the world needing to hear a new voice and perspective, brought him out of the wilderness and into the forefront of hiphop. To not only contribute to the overall success of hiphop, but to also make his mark in a genre that can influence the minds of many. Time to Shine has been in the works for nearly 2 years now, and now it's here to hopefully shed light on all aspects of the world we live in.
