Baltimore's J. Oliver has cut his teeth as a producer for artists like with Meek Mill and French Montana, but today he comes out the gate as a rapper with a boldly named mixtape called I Am Kanye West. The project reveals traces of his past: "Mommas House," for example, features menacing production and an intricately woven life tale, two trademarks of Meek Mill, whom Oliver worked with on “Fck You Mean” and "Cream."
And though it sounds tough, it's actually very sentimental. “Growing up as kids, Momma's House was our place of comfort," Oliver told The FADER over email. "That’s the place that inspired us to become what we are in life. As we got older, we love going back to Momma's House.”
