Jim James = Overexposed. Enough with this guy already.

Over exposed? Guy is an incredible artist. Who would you rather be exposed to? Gordo’s pants snake?

Not only is Kiwanuka a great musical talent, he has excelled at outside linebacker and as a defensive end for the NY Giants for many years. A real renaissance man.

“Yeah Brah,” see today’s news update. Your “incredible artist’s” PR rep is working overtime again…either that or he’s on the Jambands payroll.

Get over yourself. It’s a free website he’s playing tons of festivals and just released an album. ATO records promotes the shit out of their artists. Most of his “headlines” are festival related. Maybe it’s a slow news month? Again, what are you looking for but attention to yourself? The site is going to post what they want, regardless if YOU like him or not. Plus, just maybe his name gets them “clicks” on the site. It always coms back to money. So be naive with “on the payroll” comments.
