Bio

Justin J-Lawless Perrow is a Hip-Hop artist from Johannesburg, South Africa (Moved to Washington DC 18 May 2015). His music is a blend of cutting edge production and lyricism often described as nostalgic, energetic and refreshingly self-aware. 
Fresh off the release of the much acclaimed Revelation EP (aided by production partner and frequent collaborator Silas), he is currently working on his debut album set for release in early 2015. 
He has become somewhat of a staple in the South African underground hip-hop scene, since the release of his mixtape The Calm Before in late 2011. His subsequent Black ‘n Blue collaborations with fellow local heavyweight PdotO also gained somewhat of a cult following amongst the hip hop community. The following year he was signed to Universal Music Group SA, after his music was brought to the attention of their A&R department. This prompted the release of his follow-up mixtape, Until Tomorrow in 2013.
The newly acquired freedom inspired the Revelation EP with producer Silas Beats, his most well received project to date. Lauded for its sampling, fresh production and existentially themed content, the project went on to attract well in excess of 15,000 downloads and cemented J-Lawless as an undeniable force in South African hip hop. He has worked with a range of artists, including Blaklez, PdotO, Kid X, Bongani Fassie and Maggz. 
With sights firmly set on the international scene, and a new endorsement from Johannesburg based music retailer Music Connection, J-Lawless continues to innovate and explore through his music. His growing list of Co-signs includes the names of industry heavy weights such as Knobody (the man behind the rise of Akon), the Newton Twins (Lauren Hill) Mike Bajue and Teddy Riley.
