Raw lyrics and beats. My music is timeless and truthful. Though there are many ways to divide people in this world there is still a certain bond that connects us as humans regardless of race or class and bring that out in my music. I appreciate life and love as well as adversity and negativity, each being a tool we can use to better ourselves. My music is a reflection of the life I'm trying to make better and the world I want to change.


JOn Black - An MC with witty lyrics, a wide range of sonically-astounding rhyme patterns, and a passion for creating music that will be enjoyed by mainstream rap fans, and hip-hop purists alike.  As a child he transferred between Sacramento Ca, and San Diego Ca, which led to his exposure to many different styles of music. As he got older he began to delve into Rap and R&B. While an avid fan of many genres, JOn Black didn't begin writing or producing any music until the age of 16. At 16 he returned to San Diego, more specifically the gang-infested streets of "Southeast Daygo." Growing up in "The Southeast" exposed him to a much grittier side of life than he had previously known and the lessons it has taught him can be heard throughout is music. It was during this time JOn Black began to get more deeply involved in MC'ing and production, and crafted his rhymes after what he considers some of the best names in Rap, artists such as Tech N9ne, Dj Quik, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def, Tupac, Biggie, and Mac Dre.
