J.A.M.E.S. Watts - A Better Tomorrow

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
J.A.M.E.S. Watts
Album:
Unreleased

Although the ‘08 Best of the Booth award winners were announced only two days ago, we’re already seeing heavy competition for ‘09’s underground categories.  Previously heard on Mickey FactzJimmy Choo’s, triple-threat rapper/singer/producer J.A.M.E.S. Watts makes his solo Booth debut with a previously unreleased record on which he rhymes about the social ills that plague modern society.  Rather than despairing, however, the Jersey native predicts that the present dark night will soon give way to A Better Tomorrow.  Watts’ sample of The Miracles’ Give Me Just Another Day (which Don Cannon used previously on Young Jeezy‘s Mr. 17.5) shows a lot about his passion for the old-soul music, and his determination to take over the new school.  So, Booth-heads, do you think we have an early candidate for Best New Artist (Unsigned) 2009?
