Biography

I was born Jesse Stewart on February 9, 1983. I am the youngest of four brothers. After spending my first couple years in my hometown of Memphis Tennessee, we relocated to Nashville, TN. That was in 1986. My parents Larry and Frencella Stewart were looking for a better environment in which to raise our family. As a youngster around the house my father used to call me "Bone Head." It was like a family joke. That's were I got the Idea for my name. I dropped the head and put "J" in the front. “J Bone.” It also means that I’m “J to my Bones."
My parents used to oversee a youth program called “B.O.S.S.” It was a program design to teach urban youth survival skills not taught in regular school settings. My mom used to see my brothers and I play around like we were rap stars. She asked us to perform at a talent show for the program. That was the start to my career. We wrote a theme song for the “B.O.S.S”. program. The crowd loved the show and started giving us all kind of praises. After that I was hooked.
I start writing more and more but I wasn't getting to involved yet. I start polishing my skills around school and the neighborhood. I used to see the older guys who were really good, and that was an influence as well. At some point I decided that I would dedicate myself to becoming an artist. That's when I knew that I was "J to my Bones."
I bounced around from group to group trying to find guys with my same hunger. Around the age 18 I found a match, so I thought. The was called "TOYS." It stood for Thugged Out Young Souljahz. We were close to signing a contract, so we decided to get a lawyer to review it first. She informed us that the contract was not in our best interest. We didn’t sign. It was back to the drawing board. The whole group got frustrated and we all went our separate ways, so I decided to become a solo artist.
The next couple of years I tested the scenery battling here and there trying to gain respect. I hooked up with an old colleague from the neighborhood. His name is T-Roy Woods. He was telling me about what he was trying to do with his company “In House Productions”. His offer sounded good and I "In." We went to work on a solo project. I also hooked back up with another colleague of mine named George "Pretty Boy" Seals. He is co-owner of J & G Productions. He threw me some tracks to work with and the idea for "Overdue" was born. We've but putting two and a half years of hard work with this project. Now it's time to hit the streets. Now everybody will get the chance to see what happens when you dedicate your self to something, and work hard to achieve your goal.
