"The Chop Shop Show Recap 4/10/13"

"The last artist for the night was J Lamour. He is an all around artist, rapping his verses and singing his own hooks. This was Shampoo and the crew’s first time hearing him. The first track he played was called “Humming Bird” Shampoo said he has a Lupe Fiasco vibe which is cool. He played his second song named “Power of the Dollar” produced by Wierdo and his freestyle showcased his skills as a lyrical artist. JL went on to tell us music isn’t all that he is into. J is also into fashion accessories and believes in giving people things they can remember him by. He also said he has a special someone in his life and is not afraid to talk about it. Can we please have more men like him?! For more info on J Lamour follow him on twitter @johhny_love. Another Chop Shop Show recap!" - Mizz Saigon

Bio

Straying away from the common term "rapper", Jonathan Lamour whose stage name is J.Lamour invites his listeners to realize that he is not just a lyrical emcee but a poetic storyteller. Incorporating non-fictional accounts of his life into his music, J.Lamour gives individuals who identify with him the opportunity to understand that they too can prosper after a life of struggle.

Born into a family of talented artists and musicians, it is no question as to why J.lamour became the musician that he is today. His father still plays the piano and organ and his mother is a phenomenal singer(her debut album was a best seller within the French and Haitian community). His uncle is also a sound engineer who has worked with the likes of Busta Rhymes, Wyclef, Dr. Dre, and many more.

"Growing up in church man, that’s where I got my logic up..." the opening line of his highly controversial song, "Religion Got Me Trippin' " speaks on the Queens native’s upbringing. While utilizing his singing talent in church on a weekly basis, J. Lamour began to battle his own demons. Feeling like he couldn't reach out to his church family for help, he decided to leave and handle things on his own. In doing so, J. Lamour truly found God as well as himself. Genuinely enticed with the entire concept of rhythm and poetry,(the authentic meaning of "rap"), he was inspired to pursue his passion again.

As a result of this two-year period of constant struggle and defeat, he successfully created his brand, Money Over Redundant Endeavours (M.O.R.E) and released his highly anticipated mixtape, “I WANT M.O.R.E”, to tell his story.
