J Payne drops “The Silence of the Lames” album and “The Come Up” Music Video!
Following the release of his 2017 freshman album “Ride or Die” with Light Rider Music J Payne goes hard in the paint once again with his 2019 release “The Silence of the Lames.” This album though a play of words on the film The Silence of the Lambs is actually driven by addressing hypocrisy.
While using Titus 1:16 (contrary to Romans 1:16) as the scriptural foundation of this album J Payne touches on many issues concerning hypocrisy and living a double life. Heavily conscious subject matter with spiritual answer to the issues being addressed.
The Silence of the Lames brings a blend of hip-hop and rock/metal with unique lyricism & delivery. J Payne wraps this album up with a short sermon by his good friend Rev. Joe Hamblen.
J Payne – The Come Up (Official Music Video)
Physical copies available through facebook and website.
The Come Up music video was shot outside of Orchard Mall in Benton Harbor, MI. This song is addressing the local wannabe rapper stigma while also combating the poison that other local rappers in J Payne’s area push to the people.
