Already, we are receiving good responses regarding 'Holding It Down' in the streets and other venues. That is why this CD is a must have for your personal collection. It consists of heavy-hitting lyrical content and some of the illest beat-production you will ever hear. *Jamin is known for his unique rhyme delivery and 'Holding It Down' sets the stage for showcasing the style that has people considering this to be one of the best independent albums to hit the market, proving that *Jamin really holds his own on the mic...I mean, really spittin' that heat. It's backed up by some of the tightest beat-production in the game and some very talented up and coming producers. (Look out for these guys). Their versatile tracks make for good listening for your enjoyment. The album also features some other great artist including the 'songstress', 'T-Byrd'. Her vocals on the chorus make for a killer single on any track and makes 'No Turns Given' a classic song.

The album is fresh and blazin' hot. It's like a gift to the music industry. It's approach is rare yet *Jamin gets the job done with no complaints. He's a warrior and definitely 'holding it down'. His songs are a mixture of party and militant-minded as well as conscience; 'talk about a ride! 'Holding It Down' is the thrill hill of the rap game. It covers an array of topics yet it is sweet and succinct. Songs like, 'That's What's Up' and 'Down4Me' deals with his experiences with females, while 'Freeze' and 'Stay Strong' challenges rappers and the mind-set of mainstream society. To some people *Jamin's persona might be interpreted as 'laid-back' but he likes to think that he can stand up like a soldier when he has to.
