1) When did you produce your first beat that gave you some exposure?
J Cardim: My 1st placement was in 2004, On Jean Grae’s album titled “This week” I did “intro” and “P.S.”
2) I know you have worked with everyone in the game from Joe Buddens, Jadakiss to Ludacris & Fat Joe to
name a few. Who would you say is your favorite artist you have work with?
J.Cardim: Joe buddens was easy to work with because I’m more hands on with my production. French Montana too. I’m able to experiment different things with my beats.
3) I personally think your sound is amazing why do you think it hasn’t got the exposure to consider you one of
the top producers in the game?
J.Cardim: Times change. It’s not a producers game as it was back in 02-03 even up to 06. I think now its coming back to the artist. They want artists that create their own lanes. Like “drake” or “Asap rocky”. If this was 03 then it would have been a different story. But I like where the game is headed. The artists teams up with a producer and create a sound. That’s what me and my artist Ariez Onasis is doing.

Favorite Producer” & “The In Crowd” produced by you. when is your next project coming out?
