Every week Studio 11 gets a visit from C.J. Hamilton.  C.J. has been recording at Studio 11 since 2008 and always brings some great tracks to work on.  Not only is he a great client, but over the years I’ve had the honor of kicking it with C.J. outside the studio as well.  I’ve also produced tracks for him and sang on his records.  In a city currently flooded with drill and bop records, C.J. offers us a more introspective sound.  His records are usually full of social commentary and self examination, but delivered in a relatable way.  He has a unique ability to draw from his own life experiences while never abandoning his listeners.  A listen through C.J.’s catalog will take you on a journey of highs and lows, recall nostalgic moments in your life, and possibly make you re-think whats really important to you.

I’ve had the pleasure of helping C.J. complete 3 stellar mixtapes:

The Backup Plan (2009)

The Waiting Room (2011)

Which Way Is Up (2012)

The track heard above will be on C.J.’s newest project, entitiled “Some Kind of Hero”  and will be released sometime in 2014. We’re all looking forward to it.   If you are a fan of real hip hop that doesn’t sugarcoat complex issues while still being fun to listen to, C.J. is an artist you need in your record collection.
