What's up this is GJ comin straight outta Medina, OH...round the Cleveland/Akron area...check me out, been producin for about 3 years. 2nd Generation musician, my father was a folk artist back n tha day. I'm takin it back to the origins of Hip Hop, back before it was mainstream, like the late 70's cats. Switch it up a madd amount, take it a different direction and create something totally new. I'm in college doin Musical Production, my dream job is to be an in-house producer for Def Jam. I got alot of big plans, dreams, ideas, and ways of doin things...I'm confident you'll see me a little later.
Well...i first started playin the guitar at 4...i learned the violyn and piano when i was a lil kid...my life became a broke down dollar around 13 and i grabbed my music tight...the only friend i had for a long long time, first of the month came around one month and i spotted a keyboard at Radio Shack...snatched that up, dude, i got a dell on my slow way comin back up outta the grind but still there...startin producing stuff cuz i never went outside (wanna know why? listen to "Project Windows" by Nas) slowly built up my studio and skill...
I don't play live now, I used to play live with my father when I was a youngin. After I get a few albums out, get my name around a bit, get a chunch of contacts, get a lil bit older and switched around in life...imma throw off the gloves and drop it all on it's chin n go into the game swingin n tear it up from coast to coast club to club
