From  the DIY circuit to playing bigger stages like the Roxy and the Novo,  Emmitt James is a well celebrated and experienced performer. The Midwest  bred emcee and now LA based hip-hop artist has been said to be  reminiscent of acts like A Tribe Called Quest, Anderson. Paak and The  Internet. Since being billed for Pharcyde Phestival ( 2018),  Emmitt has been gaining momentum from opening for legendary acts such as  The Pharcyde and Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) to contemporary  acts like Cuco, Joey Purp, Duckwrth, Old Man Saxon, Jay Prince,  Banesworld and more. He also was a semi-finalist (top 12 out of 1,000)  in the Adidas Originals Sound Lab grant competition where he scored a  meeting with Pusha T at ComplexCon 2018. Since then, he's  released a slew of singles, EPs, and has independently converted his  online store to a bodega selling a variety of eclectic merchandise like  velvet thongs, potato chips, juice, vinyl, candles, cassette tapes and  more.
