In an era of fast money, fast cars, fast women and extreme lifestyles, Joe Young the Jyant offers an alternative to working class entertainment. Joe Young the Jyant, also known as Justin C. Campbell, joins the ranks of those few true musicians who produce and compose their own music. Joe Young the Jyant is making a lot of noise in the often- overlooked Washington D.C. metropolitan underground hip-hop scene with his debut street release entitled Hate Musik. The 25-year-old Temple University graduate makes an attempt to capture the driving force behind each and every form of the term grind. His attempts have resulted in the composition of lyrical masterpieces such as Must Be Heaven and Foolish Dreamer which both appear on the underground album Hate Musik.
Joe Young the Jyant is said to have the mind of a Wall Street stockbroker and the heart of a soul-funk entertainer. His songs take the listener on a journey through his rocky past while simultaneously offering a sneak peek to his promisingly bright future. This is the side of the Chocolate City the world has been anxiously waiting to hear. District Music Group Superior Quality Music for Superior Quality People.

The label has released: Joe Young The Jyant. The promotion and marketing efforts of the label concentrate on the local college radio markets and then move outside to other states as the promotional efforts increase. Nick, Justin and Madeline believe that it is important to synergize the music community by building an industry infrastructure in the city of Washington, D.C. and expanding to other parts of Southern Maryland, Northern Virginia and the United States. In order for there to be a successful music industry in the city of Washington, D.C. and Southern Maryland, it all needs to start right here first and then make its way to the rest of the country.
