Bio

Keith Wilson aka J-Blak was born and raised in Seattle Washington. A graduate from Franklin High School Keith realized he wanted to be a rapper at the age of fifteen when he first heard Gangsta Nutt’s album “Save Me”. Hearing this album inspired Keith and made him realize that he wanted to pursue rap at an early age. Coming up with the moniker J-Blak he recorded his first song with his cousin who happened to be another rapper on the rise by the name of Aquino. Shortly thereafter J-Blak found a home with Len Kapone who was an aspiring rapper whose street credibility mixed with his music instantly made him a local favorite. The pairing would be short lived for J-Blak as Len Kapone was killed before the label could get itself off the ground. Many were devastated by the loss including J-Blak who was back at square one with his music and basically had to start from scratch.After J-Blak finished high school he decided to take music serious once again but his life in the streets didn’t place him in the right path to become the artist he dreamed of being. In 2007 with refined focus he released his first mixtape “Tha Blak Tape”. The release would allow him to meet others who shared his passion including an artist by the name of Hershey. The two became friends and hooked up for a slew of mixtapes releasing four volumes to date. Wanting to expand past strictly music the two put their collaborative efforts together and hosted the first hood car show in Skyway The event was sponsored by Ezell’s chicken. Starting small but thinking big J-Blak started his own graphics company (JBlak Designz) and released his second mixtape with J.10 entitled “G.P.S.A. (Ghetto Public Service Announcement).” The future only holds more as J-Blak plans on starting work on his debut solo album tentatively titled “Manul Labor” as well as opening a portrait studio. Humbled J-Blaks goal is hopes of getting recognition and added to a list of great artists that have come from Seattle in the past.
