Quotables:

Json On Making his first single “Work – “When I first made that song, I didn’t even know what EDM was really.”

Json  On his growth musically as an artist: “7 years ago I would have hated “Work.” But that’s because I didn’t know anything else. I don’t want to be boxed in. I’m not a hood rapper…I want people to see every side of me.”

Json On discovering his lane musically: City Lights was THE Most difficult record I made in my life. That record almost didn’t come out.”

Json On His new album:Braille is similar to music. You can’t see it, but you can feel it.”

Json On Secrets Pt 1 & 2Secrets 1 was about my wife’s situation…Secrets 2 is written from the spouse of the victim, from my perspective.”

Json On working with Bizzle: “Me and Bizzle have a relationship. We talk on the phone. He’s a good dude.”

Json On Flame’s Song “#1 Spot – “I thought the song was dope and I thought the song was true.”

Json On Rapper’s as Pastors: “Our hearts are looking for someone of something to latch on to. We’ll never be at a place where those lines aren’t blurred.”

Json On Christian Rap and the Local Church: “For a long time, we’ve looked at Christian Rap to do what the church should be doing. We’re looking for Christian Rap to fix unhealthy church places.”

Json On the lack of Women Artists in Christian Hip Hop: “The Lord burdens with the burden of home. For children, what their home looks like smells like…Music in a lot of cases can pull you away from that…Home life has affected their ability to commit time to the music to the genre.”
