A few weeks ago we ago we posted a great track “Preparation” from ATL based rapper J. Nolan. We are pleased to bring you today a great interview where J. Nolan has the opportunity to provide us with some insight into his album Broken Dreams which is out now and I encourage you to get a copy right here.

Directed by Tamarcus Brown, from acolorbrownshot.tumblr.com this is interview represents to me all that can be great about this new music industry frontier: Connectivity with an artist who has substantive and inspirational messages for the people. A presentation that is edited and shot professionally and most importantly the recurring theme of truth that is felt because you are instantly struck by this narrative because it was lived not manufactured.

J. Nolan Broken Dreams out now!
