Bio

J. Bizness & Blak King are two of the newest additions to today's So. Cal Hip-Hop scene. Both individuals hail from different areas of Southern California's Inland Empire area; 50 miles East of Los Angeles.

J. Bizness is a producer, songwriter, and self proclaimed "technology geek". After moving to and from various cities in the greater Los Angeles area, his family decided to settle in the small city of Ontario, CA. J. Bizness had been exposed to many different genres of music in his earlier years; but it wasn't until 1992 that he discovered his love for Hip-Hop music. During junior high school, J. Bizness was introduced to song-writting and music producing through the older brother of a fellow classmate.

A familiar face around the city of Pomona, Blak King is one of the most brilliant emcees paving the way through the L.A. underground music scene. He was introduced to Hip-Hop music thru the influences of his older brothers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Blak King developed his love for lyricism by recording songs in the garages and bedrooms of friends in the surrounding areas of Pomona.

Fast forward to 2007: J. Bizness & Blak King were introduced to one another through mutual friend and fellow Inland Empire artist, Brother DVOOA, when the three of them recorded a song called "The (909)" for Brother DVOOA's independent release, DVOOA Display. Unbeknownst to Blak King and J. Bizness, the two had both attended Ontario High School in 1996 before Blak King later later transferred to Garey High School in Pomona. This, among other common interests, were discovered through conversation and later recording sessions.

Since then, the two decided to make a collaborative effort in creating the best possible Hip-Hop music representing the everyday person. Their music is honest, lively, and raw; epitomizing the West Coast lifestyle while steering clear of typical California stereotypes. You won't find any misogyny or materialism in their music; just "Golden-era" Hip-Hop with "New School" California swing.
