Bump J says Kanye West helped pay his lawyer. Mr. West is also making sure Bump J’s books are straight while his locked up in prison.
As far as the G.O.O.D. Music situation, Kanye is a good friend of mine. He helped pay for my lawyer and he’s making sure my books are straight while I’m in here. But as far as signing to G.O.O.D. Music, I feel like I would’ve gotten a deal with whoever I sat down to talk with. At the time, I was focused on recording and having an album already done before I tried to sign with anybody. But G.O.O.D. Music would’ve been one of my first options.
Now, it’s pretty dope that Kanye and No I.D. still look out for you while you’re in there. I’m guessing you still have some good contact with them?
Well, since we now have access to internet and email, communication has been better. But like I said, I try to stay out of the world. It helps my time fly by better. The less I’m hearing about what’s going on out there, the easier it is for my time to fly. That’s how I do it. When I hear from people and they’re telling me about a lot of the things that are going on out there, I get in my “Damn, I’m supposed to be out there” mode, and it can really slow time down. So I try to limit a lot of contact with the outside world. Period
