Carrying the torch as a true lyricist and MC is Inland Empire’s City James who’s here to prove to the world that he’s ready to break down any barriers that stand in his way. Inclined to poetry at a young age, City has developed a special ability to articulate his thoughts and emotions from an outside vantage point of his own life making him the perfect narrator to buy into. The perspective of James gives a rather cinematic view of his world as a father, dreamer and visionary stuck trying to breakthrough the harsh reality that life actually offers. What we do find out through both his metaphorical depictions and real life situations is that there is always a light at the end of it all. A true author of his own kind, City’s talents are rooted much deeper than just music.
