Southern Legend, Birmingham J releases latest single “In The Mirror”
Southern Legend, Birmingham J releases his latest single “In The Mirror” featuring Venus. Already a legend in his state of Alabama, Jamal Thomas has earned his place as Southern rap royalty. Writing his first rhymes, at the early age of 10, as an outlet to tell his story of a troubled childhood. Eventually, his writing delivered him from desperate times to dynamic regional success.

Both singles earned phenomenal independent sales numbers and placed him on Billboard’s Top 100 six times. His collaborations on these projects and others read like a list of “Who’s Who” in Southern hip-hop: Lil Jon, Young Bloodz, Bun B, T-Pain and Rich Boy to name a few.
The Legend Speaks

“I’ll never change, I want people to know about life in Birmingham. They know enough about Atlanta, Memphis,and Houston. I want them to know, we are more than a chapter in the book of civil rights. No one loves this city more or reps it better… I am Birmingham.”

As an Executive Producer / ANR /Manager and Dj, Birmingham J will be in a position to garner the national attention that his industry peers and fans have always known he deserves.
