“It Ain’t Easy” is off The Package mixtape Presented by J Erving Group, Salaam Remi & DJ Driis.


CJ’s debut album will be out this summer on J Records, but you can get an early preview with The Package mixtape. You may have already heard him singing on Raphael Saadiq’s Grammy Nominated song “Never Give You Up” from the album The Way I See It.

CJ is not only a singer, but a producer and musician as well: check out the video of CJ riffing on the piano with DJ Driis (Idriis Alba aka The Wire‘s Stringer Bell.)

The first single off the album coming this summer, produced by Bangladesh and written by CJ himself, will be hitting the radio airwaves in February. While CJ wrote and co-produced a great deal of material on his album, it will also feature collaborations with hit producers and writers like Salaam Remi, Bangladesh, Raphael Saadiq, Rico Love, Dre and Vidal, KP and Malay and Marsha Ambrosius, to name just a few.
