Jim Gittum Drops His Anticipated Debut Solo Album “The Vision”

Jim Gittum’s much anticipated debut album, The Vision is available to purchase now, with songs like Just Because, and Brighter Day, The Vision showcases rap music with a meaning, coupled with the flawless production that we have all come to expect from Gittum.

Jim Gittum is one of only a handful of people who can attest to the inner-workings of 90’s rap-powerhouse Death Row Records. As a staff producer for Suge Knight’s enterprise, the young Long Beach native contributed his talent to the careers of legendary West Coast names, including Tupac Shakur. With a formidable resume including work with Crooked I, The Game, Keyshia Cole, K-Ci Hailey, and Tha Dogg Pound, Queen Latifah, comedian Eddie Griffin, and the Billy Blanks Tae-Bo DVD series.

Gittum is without a doubt one of the brightest writers, thinkers, emcees and producers to emerge from the west coast’s artistic and cultural movement. Though always happy to write and produce for other artists, Jim’s quiet desire has always been to become a vehicle of his own message. His company, Hell No, Inc., is an answer to the forces of nature that encourage failure, and he has produced an entire debut album entitled The Vision, before approaching record executives with his fresh approach to faith-based music. The Vision is on sale now at, and will be available on iTunes soon.

  6. This album is more than moving to beat, it sends a message through every lyric. To the point of changing your perspective on the true meaning of Loving a Woman and to the way God has told us who we are! As it has been sung, by Mr.Gittum, “Full armor down those demons catch’em beatings”. You are truly sent by God Mr. Gittum. The words have ministered to not only to me. However, to my young nieces and nephew’s they have downloaded it to their ipods, laptops, and cellphone, and yes dancing to it as well Jim You are wining souls for the LORD.GITTUMMMMMMM! LOVE THE WHOLE ALBUM…
