Biography

In the soap opera that we call hip-hop, talent falls second to goofy gimmicks, rented cars and jewelry, publicity stunts, and hot beats. Jo Gamgino, on the other hand, is one of the only rappers to successfully combine them all! This 18 year old hot-spitter not only brings the lyrical wit of a Lloyd Banks, but also has Bow Wow's ability to attract the young ladies along with the grown women. JG is loaded with hot 16's that he loves putting down over his OWN beats!! Jo Gamgino is the definition of a well-rounded rapper.
Jo Gamgino, born Adam Lonie, was born in Chicago, Illinois. During the first half of his life, he lived on Chicago's notorious South-Side. At the age of 9, JG's family moved to the suburbs. Living half of his life in the hood and the other half in the suburbs gives Jo a wide range of subject matter and enables him to be a voice to young children in the slums, and teenagers in the suburbs. His cute face and pearly-white smile also allows him to make classic love ballads for the ladies without loosing that edge that the fellas love.
In high school, JG began producing for his crew, Flipside Records, and in 2-3 years became one of Chicago's hottest underground producers. JG writes his own lyrics, makes his own beats, and is the Chief Executive Officer of Flipside Records L.L.C. Right after graduating from high school, he executive produced his first proffessional project, The Flipside Records Compilation Vol. 1, which quickly became a street classic. Some may consider Jo an over-achiever, but that's an understatement. He's the Super Emcee. The voice of the streets, the leader of the suburbs, and the eyecandy for the girls. He's an emcee's nightmare and an A&R's wet dream. JG is the future of Hip-Hop.
