Jamieson Releases "Trying To Be Me" Video
British Hip Hop artist and producer Jamieson makes his way back onto the scene with a brand new offering titled “Trying To Be Me”, setting the stage for his upcoming EP Nothing To Lose which is due to be released later this year. Produced by U.S beatsmith Vintage, Jamieson’s “Trying To Be Me” helps set the tone the forthcoming EP with a nothing to lose attitude that flows throughout the fiery three-minute track.
While he is a proud Londoner through and true, Jamieson always harboured a belief that “if he could make it in New York, he could make it anywhere”, and with that credence in mind, he packed his bags and headed for the big apple, where he has been flying the flag for UK Hip-Hop for close to a decade.
The first shots of success came with The Foreign Exchange mixtape, which was hosted by G-Unit's own DJ Whoo Kid and released in 2007. Next up was his EP trilogy I Came, I Saw Volumes I-III, released between 2010 and 2012. The EPs featured production and collaborations with US and international rap heavyweights such as Sean Price, Joell Ortiz and Skyzoo.
The final volume of his I Came, I Saw EP featured the critically acclaimed “I Get Busy” accompanied by an insane animated video which soon caught the attention of MTV and was playlisted on MTV Base, featured on MTV IGGY and declared a “Hot New Single” by Myspace.com.
Jamieson was also invited to play SXSW 2013, and had the opportunity to perform at Think Pink Rocks and Hot 97's Who's Next showcase, also opening for notable artists such as Melanie Fiona, Flo Rida, Sean Kingston, Akon, Mobb Deep and The Pharcyde, while catching the attention of former Universal Music Group CEO Doug Morris, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Loud Records founder Steve Rifkind among others.
The Hip Hop community in the US and UK continue to support and acknowledge his work ethic as features with the likes of XXL Magazine, ThisIs50.com, 2DopeBoyz, DJBooth.net, TheHipHopChronicle.com, DJSemtex.com and GRM Daily help to illustrate. As his star continues to rise, Jamieson's commitment and faith continue to pay off - this is definitely just the beginning.
