Three years in the mak­ing ‘The Way Things Were’ is the latest album to come from Hip Hop artist MJ. Inspired by changes in her per­son­al life and the social changes of 2020, ‘The Way Things Were’ show­cases the skills of this amaz­ing female rap­per. “I wanted to show that I have some­thing to say and I have a beau­ti­ful way of express­ing that” explains MJ. When she star­ted this pro­ject she was still devel­op­ing as an artist, but now she feels like she is at the end of that jour­ney and the album doc­u­ments this self-growth.
Not your typ­ic­al female rap­per, MJ is a poet who uses her pen as a brush and words to paint a pic­ture. After releas­ing sev­er­al free­styles on Sound­Cloud she released her debut album, “Live Through Me” in 2014. After mov­ing to Hou­s­ton to fur­ther her career she released her fol­low up mix­tape “MEEZUS” in 2016. MJ makes both fun and con­scious music. She is inspired by the con­stant tumul­tu­ous racial land­scape in Amer­ica but she also opens up about her life and out­look on life. Cit­ing Lauryn Hill, Child­ish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar as key influ­ences, MJ is cer­tainly one to watch in 2021!
