There’s a new, rising talent coming out of the Garden State. Today, New Jersey rapper/producer 8aint jame8 (pronounced Saint James) from the STTP crew, releases a new track called “Paradise”. Produced by 8aint jame8 and featuring fellow S Double member LBtheGREAT, this bouncy anthem about coming from the bottom and living the good life is from his latest project, Clips Vol. 3.
Hailing from Hackensack, New Jersey and born to Jamaican parents, 8aint’s first love is music as he grew up in a family with aspiring artists and creatives with different taste. But with his older brother being heavily involved in the local hip hop scene while growing up, 8aint would eventually follow in his brother’s footsteps and pursue music. While growing up in his hometown, he would team up with his best friends and formed the crew, Straight To The Point.
As soon as you hear 8aint’s voice, you can hear an east coast lyricist who’s confident, honest, and very self-aware. Over production that ranges from trap to boom bap, 8aint wants to make sure that every time he raps, he delivers the message of living good, smoking good, and being successful while remaining true to yourself. 8aint now feels that the Clips series would be the best way to showcase his take on modern east coast hip hop.
“I decided to come up with the Clips series because it’s a collection of EPs that will only have 4-5 songs each project. With each clip being so short, it’s not enough music to get you high but it’s enough to get a buzz.” says 8aint.
Led by “Decimate” and “Ascension”, the new 4-track EP is a follow up to his release Clips Vol. 2 (released March 2018). “Paradise” and Clips Vol. 3 is out now, so go ahead and hit play below.
