J French gives an alternative perspective on ‘Different Ain’t Different’.
Oklahoma City rapper, producer, and formally-trained multi-instrumentalistÂ J FrenchÂ has had a productive year. His debut album, Jaguar Jesus, released almost a year ago to this day, created a considerable regional buzz for the rapper. Now, French rounds out 2017 having finished his forthcoming sophomore album OGB (Only Gets Better), as well as a collaborative full-lengthÂ project with former in-house Death Row producer (and father of Hollywood star Demitrius Shipp Jr.)Â Demitrius “Meech” ShippÂ Sr.
‘”Different ain’t Different’ is about artistry not being as respected as it should. It’s about artists not being able to be artists without someone either completely biting them or duplicating their style, which depreciates the value of true artistry. This song is made from pure observation and you can tell by the lyrics.”Â – J French
