Still working on that hot first release.



Born Joel Porter II, Ja' began playing a variety of instruments at age 5 but around age 13 his focus shifted to sports, specifically basketball.

His passion for making music grew sophomore year of college when his basketball plans didn't pan out. Music was just a hobby at first but the desire to pursue it as a career quickly increased. Ja' uses his life experiences to influence his music. Growing up with divorced parents, Porter says that even though he came from a broken home, the vibes were always positive. His mom listened to a lot of soul and melodic songs whose influences can be heard in his smooth flow. His pops jammed a lot of Pac and Biggie so you can see where he gets the story telling and witty metaphor aspect.
