JusJames "Whirlwind"

JusJames features two legends, and two tracks, on his latest single

“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” [Philippians 3:12-14]

Time seems to be moving faster than ever.

When the world operates at a break-neck pace, it can be easy to get lost in the movement. From grind culture to “keeping up with the Joneses”, the pressure to be seen as successful has never been more intense. It can seem nearly impossible to not be swept up and thrown to the side.

On his newest release, JusJames is encouraging listeners to avoid being tossed by the Whirlwind.

A double-single release, Whirlwind is the second single off of JusJames’ upcoming album entitled ‘3936’.

The return of the 3-verse song!

California emcee and Polished Arrow Music artist JusJames delivers an iconic record featuring two legends in the Christian rap genre.

Mission (Sacramento, CA) and former Cross Movements Records artist R-Swift (Philadelphia, PA) join JusJames on the Chris Pickett-produced record. In addition to the OG’s, DJ Navin Johnson also brings his turntable expertise to the song to elevate it to instant classic status with his amazing record scratches.

Whirlwind is everything that true hip-hop heads love about the genre.

Whether you are looking for high-level lyricism, seeking out perfectly selected samples, waking up the neighborhood with hard-hitting kicks, or simply riding to golden-era west coast synths, you’ll find it all with Whirlwind. Add in a simple, yet memorable, hook, and you have the elements that come together to create a song that stands the test of time.

At the heart of this hip-hop masterclass is the message of Jesus Christ. These incredible artists keep the “main thing” the main thing! Their eyes are on the Lord in the midst of chaos and distractions looking to detour them from the calling on their lives.

Whirlwind releases to digital streaming platforms on July 28, 2023.

Included in the release are both the original and the Chopped & Screwed versions of the record. The Chopped & Screwed iteration was done by USB The Jeweler which serves as a perfect compliment and a nod to an era that is often overlooked in today’s musical landscape. Not only is it a bonus for listeners, but it showcases how a piece of art can be displayed in a variety of ways to connect with a larger audience.

iNTELLECT and Procyse 'The Art of Grace'

iNTELLECT and Procyse Announce the Release of Their Highly-Anticipated Revision Project

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, ‘This was he of whom I said, He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” [John 1:14-17]

The amazing thing about grace is that, despite our best efforts to write the ending, our story is unfinished.

Grace gives us an opportunity. It allows space for our humanity to get in the way and still rise above the odds. It is not for our own sake but for the sake of Christ who earned the grace we receive. This gift is not a one-time offer. Instead, grace continues.

For Christian rap artists iNTELLECT and Procyse (Polished Arrow Music), The Art of Grace is the opportunity to tell the best story possible.

The first iteration of the EP was released in February of 2021.

This was before the creation of Polished Arrow Music and during the early stages of iNTELLECT and Procyse’s gelling as a duo. Following the original release, the collaboration was met with plenty of positive responses and represented the beginning of the journey the two artists would travel together. However, the story living inside these songs was far from finished.

“‘For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus’ [Ephesians 2:10] describes the work that God is doing in our lives. His grace is a work of art. This album that Procyse and I put together was meant to put His beautiful work on display.” – iNTELLECT

The two began investing more time into the project despite the fact that it had already been released, something unheard of in today’s music industry.

Those efforts resulted in a new and unique sonic experience. The classic hip-hop vibe remains intact, but the spirit of the records has been given new life. Along with the revised versions of “I’m So…”, “Rise Up”, “Amazing Grace”, and “For the Culture”, new songs were added that round out the project’s purpose.

Featuring artists TC, JusJames, Yasad One, DJ Dsern, and DJ Navin Johnson, the updated version of The Art of Grace is set to release on digital music platforms on June 2, 2023. Along with production by the original EP’s producer Newselph, the revised installment includes additional production from F-Plus and Brokenfinga.

Polished Arrow Music has quickly established itself as a standout indie imprint within the Christian rap industry. The label has rightly earned a reputation as a source of high-quality boom-bap hip-hop, creating music with meaningful content and top-tier sound quality.

JusJames "The Incredible"

JusJames Drops First Single From Forthcoming Album

JusJames features JusRzd on the worshipful “The Incredible”

“He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. Lord, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them?” [Psalms 144:2-3]

If we, those made in the image of God, do not honor and glorify Him consistently, then we are told that He will have the rocks cry out in worship. The Lord our God is worthy and deserving not only of our words but of our very lives to be lived in reverence of Him. There is truly no other that is more incredible than Him. This is how it was, is, and forever will be. What better privilege can we be given than to acknowledge this truth?

The Incredible is a beautiful introduction to JusJames’ upcoming project ‘3936’. The lead single features the melodic JusRzd on the hook which sets the tone for the record from the start. James’ verses portray an artist who is not only confident in his craft but one whose heart and mind are set on the proper motivation. It is not fame in the eyes of man that drives these artists, but the favor of the Most High God.

The Incredible hit digital streaming platforms on April 21, 2023.

The collaboration between JusJames and JusRzd is a declaration to all listeners that God is worthy of exaltation. As the song exclaims, “Shout it from the mountain tops if you love Him!” Chris Pickett of BigBoyTraks handled production duties for The Incredible while mixing & mastering was completed by iNTELLECT.

JusJames shares his personal experience with COVID-19 in the new single RXNGS.

JusJames is a Christian hip-hop artist from the west coast. During the COVID pandemic, James, like others, had to pivot and adjust to a new way of growing as an artist. Not only did he face a music industry that was changing on the fly, but his family dealt with the virus first-hand. 

JusJames made Headlines in 2020 despite these increasing difficulties. He is now setting up for a big second half of 2021. There is a new mixtape on the way and to prepare for its release, James teamed up with fellow west coast emcee Mission for his latest single RXNGS.

RXNGS is a melodic, introspective record where both artists reflect on the challenges of the past year. What has been the most difficult time of the lives of the majority of the population was an opportunity to proclaim where to find true security for JusJames and Mission.

RXNGS speaks about my experience and revelation from going through COVID-19 as a family,” explains JusJames. “[We’re] bringing hope through Jesus in this circumstance.”

The record is produced by HUNGERFORCEBEATS and hits digital retailers on August 20, 2021.
