Coming from the UK, we are graced by the mind of a queer non binary artist with a style coming from multiple genre influences. Expressing them self through the perspective experiences of a black human of their chosen identity in mainstream society through a manifold of styles; UK RnB, Grime, Brit-Pop, Indie rock and more. CJ Run poses a unique brand of hip hop that is unmatched by mainstream culture and even challenges any alternative narrative. Going on a spree this month releasing a few singles, each a different breed of character.
Representing U of I in Urbana – Champaign, IL CJ got connected with a few artists for the journey. Producer yourbeautifulruin works on the two of the three tracks released recently; Indigo and 747. Going over a heart ache in one track while the other boasts future success, not letting their emotions hold them back! You can hear and feel the confidence and energy CJ is emitting in League Of My Own with Glassic. At it for quite a while and giving people hell before they had a CD on the shelf, you can expect more from CJ Run following these releases! Excited to see what is next for this artist.
editors note: CJ Run is not a “chosen idenity” but rather who they are in blood from birth, aside from extremely talented.
