Taking the best elements of music from the past and adding your own modern touch to it has been a successful practice for years. It still takes hard work to get it right but we recently came across 3Bubble and J. Gray who seem to be onto something hot in new hip-hop.  

We caught up with the duo as they release their new record LFTP Season, Vol. 1 Reloaded to get behind the scenes and into their mind. Enjoy the interview below:


Q: First off, where did the names 3Bubble and J. Gray come from?

A: The name 3Bubble was derived from “3rd degree” and from there the symbol for the degree bubble, became a part of 3’s name. 3Bubble is a different way of stating “3rd Degree” as in 3rd Degree flames being spit.
