I started making short songs with my school friends in Jamaica when I was 14

Mr Eaton is actually My third name so i decided to use it as a stage name as it is easy to say and remember.

We talk to ABJ4 about his new album which just came out called VCR. VCR has this old school vibe featuring production from Sha Leik.
What inspired the album?
This album was inspired by me getting kicked out on Christmas Day in 2015 and the journey of getting back on my feet in 2016 with the help of the Lord.
What does the title mean VCR?
VCR stands for venting can restore. This means that sometimes talking about our problems can help us deal with them. With that being said this is probably my most vulnerable project.
I see you have Sha Leik produced one of the beats, He made kings daughter.
There's actually 2 Sha Leik tracks on the project. King's Daughter and JLo. Both were from some of his best tapes. I love when producers make those it makes it easier in my opinion to find a beat I can vibe to.
What was the hardest track to write?
The hardest track to write on this project was probably JLo. The hook came so easy but it took awhile to figure out what approach the verses. But it turned out great with a lot of JLo references.
What are your plans after this?
My plans after this are another original project with original production. VCR was me going back to the classic AJB4 sound with samples
