Biography

Jun Bug is a southern rapper with a worldwide appeal. Born in Thomasville, GA, near the Stateline, the rapper, songwriter and singer began performing at the tender age of five.

Family and friends quickly took notice of Jun Bug’s ability to write and perform music while he was very young. “I started out singing R&B as a child and as I got older I got inspired by legendary rap groups like NWA,” states Jun Bug. But it was Bone Thug’s N Harmony (Founded by NWA’s founder Easy E), that really influenced the type of artist that Jun Bug would aspire to be. “At that point, I saw that you didn’t lose street credibility by singing and rapping,” says Jun Bug.

As a child Jun Bug used music as his soul’s escapism from the pressures of his young life including the loss of his mother. As the streets would have it Jun Bug ended up serving seven years in and out of jail and eight years on parole. During this time, he never lost his passion for music. While on parole he seriously began pursuing his music career. With the direction of a family friend his music was placed in the hands of the execs at Helium 4 Music in Atlanta, GA, where he quickly became a priority.

Jun Bug’s style is original blues/R&B/and hip-hop. His music reminds you of the tracks your parents and grandparents used to rock to. His odes affirm intellect and are an exalt consciousness and respect to the history of music. Tracks like “Jody’s Got Your Girl and Gone” showcase his musical absorption, and announce the harsh reality of a smooth cat taking your chick. Jun’s commercial side shows up in the radio-friendly debut single “XOXO (Hug and Kisses).” It is this level of diversity and candidness that will win over fans of all ages and markets across the world. “I do this. I am telling the movie of the streets that it is my responsibility to do it properly. I do this for the mom I lost and my little brother,” concludes Jun Bug.
