About WTH

Wasted Talent Hip Hop was founded by James Michael Smith on March 3, 2007. James hope to inspire a new generation of singers and rappers to focus on their gifts and share it with the world through music. WTH is his legacy. We strive to encourage young men and women to stay in school and seek to improve their musical talents afterwards in a productive, non-violent manner.

Our Mantra

“You are the sum of the actions you take. Make them count because you only get one shot in a lifetime.”

With a diverse group of musical influences from Trapt, Linkin Park, Busta Rhymes, Celine Dion, and many more, James is a connoisseur of all kinds of music, not just hip-hop and rap. However, with a natural gift and gravitation toward hip-hop, who better to lead our struggle for visibility in the social media world of today.
