The delivery is as raw and unabashed as the emotion you’re getting in the music.
J Soulja has the fire and the drive keeping him on point, weaving lyricism that shows no mercy. But J Soulja also uses his unique platform to uplift his fellow artists. Supporting the community is at the top of his list. He’s curated the new open mic showcase The Pre-Roll ATX, via his quarterly hip-hop show The Smoke Out, offering more performance opportunities for local artists.
Tonight, Friday July 2, is a big night indeed, and an excellent start to the July 4th weekend. J Soulja shares a bill with Houston artist and OG member of the hip-hop collective Screwed Up Click, Lil Keke, along with Austin artist TEDDYTHELEGACY and DJ Kurupt at Antone’s, 305 E. 5th St. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 9 p.m.
