Growing up as a young indigenous man in Australia, Australian IMC YAG member James Alberts aka Jimblah
James has always had trouble with identity and how society views his people. His music has given him the strength to rise above the racism, the self esteem issues and the negative stereotypes his people face daily. He is well respected within his community as a mentor, a leader, and a role model for younger indigenous Australians. He teaches in schools, jails, remote communities, and lectures at universities, on the positive aspects of hip hop culture, on raising social awareness, about breaking down the barriers that indigenous youth struggle with, and on how we can empower the next generation to be confident with themselves, to know who they are and be proud of where they have come from.
