James Miller - He’s hungry…but not for the delicacies that can be found in the 101 chicken shacks across the crime filled streets of Newark, New Jersey where he was born and raised. He is hungry to do what he loves and that is make music for the people. He wants to nourish the souls of young and old, black, white and purple, rich and poor, male and female and all those in between. He doesn’t want to do it through glamorizing the hood and perils of street life, but does want to be the Voice of the Streets. Hip hop artists have been doing this since the start of it all. There is no false bragging. He has suffered the consequences of his actions. He has lived among Brick City’s lowest classes and made acquaintances with peers that at one time gave up education to hustle. He is not going to encourage you to live righteously or lecture you through this vocal delivery and he does not just rhyme over beats. It is not just the sorrows and dark period that Heathen explores on his 2011 anticipated and appropriately named “Never A Day Off” debut album. This compilation of his work is filled with various flavors and diverse ingredients that will sometimes express his happiness sometimes have you rolling down your windows in the winter time, and others will make you shed a tear.

Truth is after the “Opening Act” you will agree it’s “Off Da Chain.” Heathen knows what position he has to play and knows his role in the game. He first started writing rhymes in pre-adolescence. It was a “Damn Shame” he was forced to put the music on pause and go to college and play basketball but it gave him countless hours to develop his poisoness punch lines and flow that allows you to feel what he feels. He has never been shot or sold drugs but understands and lived in the ghetto. He has had to live the dark life to put food in his mouth and make a dollar. He has the hustler ambition and his musical dexterity will give you a real pleasure and small insight into his tale from the gutter. He laces his album with sample based arrangements in addition to live musical instruments that are sure to make you put your “Hands Up.” In a league of his own you cannot put this man in one category. He is not doing this to be famous although this debut album is going to put him in history. Always in control, always grinding, staying focused with heart and a conscious effort for your listening pleasure. Heathen takes a unique approach in this early work with a wide array of guest producers. Nearly half of the songs produced by a fellow Goon Toonz producer Drone Beats are nothing short of greatness. Other notable producers including Dream Team, Mook Marvelous, Kane Da Kameleon, Shy Boogs, Parlay and Mr. Silverberg provided him with crazy beats the people will appreciate. One song on his album the thick girls are sure to love is called “Muffin Top” Another cut for the ladies is entitled “Heaven’s Melody”.

Heathen has been featured on numerous mixtapes throughout the tri-state area in addition to opening up shows for some of the industry’s finest. Among those artists he has opened up for include but not limited to Lil Wayne, The Clipse, Lyfe Jennings, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Duece Poppi, UNK, Baby D, M.O.P., Grafh, Jadakiss and Juelz Santana.

This young man is not in this to battle or compete; Heathen simply has fun despite the sleepless nights in the studio to make good music. He wants to give you what you need and make you feel some kind of way. Ready for the world to embrace, every song so far is fire. Although he is not finished with what is on his plate right now he is already hungry for more.
