Before J. Cardim dropped his mixtape The In Crowd and jet setted to Brazil he rolled through the iHipHop offices for an interview.  In part one Mr. Cardim touches on what type of music he exposes himself to on a daily basis, and stresses that he is a producer, not simply a beat maker.  I also force him to talk about the culture of Brazil considering I desperately want to visit it’s beaches and women.  In part two J. Cardim describes exactly what he was trying to accomplish with his latest mixtape and breaks down alternative ways for producers to get money outside of typical “placements”.
