with support from Piers James
With natural charisma and finesse, there is something really refreshing and original about Piers James as an artist. Spreading his expressions of thought and feeling to the masses, while portraying issues and topics that are deemed uncommon to the stereotypical rapper. With very honest and somewhat cleverly blunt lyricism, it is always exciting to hear what’s in store for future content from the young rapper.
