Biography

"Never Fold Under Pressure" is a personal motto for J.A. Being born and raised in Atlanta, Ga., pressure is an everyday obstacle, so beating the odds has always be on his agenda. Father, Businessman, and rap artist are only a few of the hats that J.A. takes on.

His rap career began in 2003 at Chuck D's (Public Enemy) Slamjamz Studios in College Park, GA.. At the age of 19 after being invited to join an upcoming rap group, Face Card Mob, J.A. begin to realize that after bypassing college and several run-ins with the law, that this may be his shot at making a better life for himself. After several years of recording and trying to make a name for themselves, the group split. Determined not to fall back into the streets, in 2006 he begin to work on his first solo project entitled, Hustlers Ambition. After 2 years of hard work, in the summer of 2008 the mixtape was released in the streets. It produced a large amount of local notoriety with songs such as, "Southside Sh**" and "Get Money", but did not generate the regional success that he hoped for. "Sometimes falling back is the best option" and that is what J.A. did. In 2009 he re-emerged with a new focus and motivation to succeed. Rattling off local hits like "We On", "Money talk', "Long road', and 'Guap", J.A. went on an all out frenzy, performing at every open mic and showcase in the city.
Now in the role of a solo artist and after opening up and performing on shows with some of the biggest names in hip-hop,J.A. is ready to stake his claim as an unreplacable asset in todays music industry.
