(Video) Jake James ft. Stacy Barthe – “Celebration” @jakejamesnyc

Published

unnamed (24)

NY-newcomer Jake James released the official video for his follow-up single “Celebration” featuring GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Stacy Barthe today. Just in time for graduation season, the aspirational, coming-of-age visual shows Jake daydreaming on what’s to come in life post-graduation – a crossroads familiar to many. On the track, Jake raps about chasing his dreams and reaching for the stars over Statik Selektah’s (Nas, KRS-One, Wiz Khalifa, Action Bronson) stripped down boom-bap production. “Celebration” featuring Stacey Barthe is available everywhere now, watch the video HERE.

“Celebration” comes behind Jake’s nostalgic debut single, “Boss Thoughts”. The single’s boom-bap soundscape, produced by multi-platinum producer Buckwild (Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Beastie Boys, Fat Joe, Big Pun, Big L,) underscores Jake’s slick lyricism. Sitting at nearly 100K views, the video features the actual public housing Jake grew up in, as well as his dad and little cousin – a true rags-to-wall street story.

Investment banker by day, rapper by night. Coming up in rural upstate New York, pursuing music was low on Jake’s list of career paths. His love for writing began at five and he recalls writing poetry as his parents played Jazz and Soul oldies.

Jake figured that education would be his easiest way out. At fifteen, he used his top-tier SAT scores to apply for college and was accepted. In college, Jake studied finance, ran his own small equity fund and began touring small shows in various markets, opening for notable established acts, including G-Unit, Dave East and Moneybagg Yo. Eventually Jake organically sold out NYC’s legendary venue, SOB’s on his own. Jake’s talent has garnered the attention and respect of acclaimed producer Statik Selektah and even the iconic Notorious B.I.G.’s producer, Buckwild.
