Jamieson – ‘The War’

Originally from London, Jamieson has been a songwriter, rapper and producer since he was 18 years old. Focusing on personal battles such as betrayal, revenge, and discomfort, albeit with a light tone, Jamieson doesn’t define himself as being within a specific genre, but rather describes his music as bringing gaiety to the universe, on his own terms.

His debut mix tape, ‘The Foreign Exchange’, was released back in 2007, and he followed this with a trilogy of EPs released in 2010 and 2012. His sound has been compared to J Cole, Mac Miller, and Bad Bunny, and he mixes hip hop with a Reggaeton inspired flow, while at the same time infusing metaphors and lessons between his quick shots and fast delivery.

The clip for Jamieson’s latest track, ‘The War’, sees him go into battle, both literally and metaphorically. The video has been directed by Joe Puma and opens with Jamieson and his regiment taking on the instructions of their commanding officer. The lyrics tell of Jamieson’s struggle to find peace in the hardships he’s experienced, fighting the battles in his mind.
