After a stellar turn co-starring on the first Scarface mixtape, B James got a lot of peoples attention. Certainly at the time everyone I was around would say things like "Damn, who is this?" & "them 2 young cats( B James & Monk Kaza) on the new Scarface CD are going in." With his mentors career taking a brief hiatus, the Houston via Detroit MC kept it going with the release of his outstanding project Almost There. Proving himself a viable commodity as a solo artist, James was soon having his music featured all over the web, to go along with burgeoning movements in the underground Detroit, and Texas Rap scene. The proliferation of Houston veterans and legends in his videos speaks to B Dot's standing. Despite having a style that is more true to the authentic Gangster Rap of the mid-90's, than most of today's cartoonish and fabricated version. James is a humble guy, who gives and earns respect. He's soon to release his next project A Young Vet (which features Killer Mike & Scarface), and we caught up to him right after he released his latest video "Still Standing," and the launch of his website www.bdotjames.com. We discussed working with Scarface, his label situation, whether we''ll hear him and Monk again soon (yes,) and much more.
