James Fish

 Little Rock, Arkansas, USA
SoloHip Hop

Hip hop has begun to go in a direction away from the actual skill and lyrics it was founded on. I'm just trying to bring the culture back to substance with intelligent rhyme schemes, metaphors, and real life situations.


Indie rapper James Fish may hail from the Little Rock, AR, but his voice has grown limbs that have stretched to every region, specifically the Northwest. For hip hop, Arkansas is a relatively untapped state but James has dominated locally, working with the South’s top tier, including Bun B (“Long Road” single) and Juicy J ("This Sh*t" single). Working heavily in Portland, OR with the NW’s prominent producers, James Fish has created a new album The Dark Side Of James Fish that mingles 80’s samples, slappy 808’s and grimey synths with his inventive cadences and excellent wordplay alongside a spectrum of guests including Royce Da 5’9”, Evidence, Devin The Dude, Mistah F.A.B., and more.
