Uzuhan [oozoo - hahn]: a Korean word for excellence. A symbol for forward movement. A statement of upward progression. A landmark for breakthrough growth.
Uzuhan: James Han. An Atlanta-based hip-hop artist who captures space with a captivating energy and dresses the ordinary with upbeat distinction.
His latest release, the Uzuhan series, is a collection of three flights that mark a new phase of artistry for the rapper. It celebrates the artist’s identity as a Korean-American while creating a genre that mixes hip-hop, jazz, and R&B-inspired melodies -- beats intended for some serious dancing and grooving.
Han has built a sound riddled with elements inspired by Nujabes, Stevie Wonder, and Kanye West, roped in by his thoughtfully crafted words. Uzuhan emphasizes the art of creating lyrics around the everyday and mundane, bringing a fresh perspective on what everyone has in common. In this, he fashions music that resonates in its relatability, building an international following that has led to tours in Japan and Korea within only three years of starting his solo career as a recording artist. Han has collaborated with artists like John Givez (Dream Junkies) and S.O. (Lamp Mode Recordings), quickly building his repertoire as an artist, and with such energy and enthusiasm, he continually pushes forward and upward, creatively composing his vision and purpose, celebrating what he sees as beautiful in both this life and beyond.
