“J’sar’s voice of reason deserves to be heard.” – Wendy Day, www.rapcoalition.org
J’sar was born in Newport News, Virginia, an area known for producing top-tier talent. He recalls being introduced to music by his older sister and from his grandmother’s radio. Fascinated with the art, he’d record songs from radio and write the song lyrics. J’sar began writing and recording his own lyrics on his mom’s tape recorder during his elementary school years. His natural passion for music became his outlet.
J’sar began the journey of perfecting his craft, often skipping on summer fun while working to advance his skills as he continued pursuing his dream of a career in music. Citing 2pac and Nas as early influences, J’sar is a traditional lyricist,
a poetic commentator with a witty rhyme style. He speaks for the dreamer. His music often has a motivational undertone.
Outside of the studio, experiences on both sides of the tracks have molded J’sar into a voice of the people. J'sar believes artists share the duty of providing play by play for all walks of life.
"Rap artists are the authors, we provide the commentary....."
J’sar looks to display his brand of hip-hop on stages across the world. He’s opened at Farm Bureua Live, Shaggfest 2014, which featured Pharrell’s homecoming to Virginia. He’s performed in Austin, TX during SXSW. His music is
featured on Nottz Raw’s Welcome Home Mixtape Series Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7. His music has earned favorable review from !llmind during Blapkit Submission Sundays, also making it’s way in the studio of Grammy winning J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League’s own sound architect Edward “UK” Nixon.
J’sar’s motto: “you’ll find inspiration in your own achievements, inspire yourself.”
“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to rap and be the voice you chose to listen to.”
