Bio

So let me take you from the beginning of my music time to now. My government name is Rockmen Jermaine Parris, and I was born July 24th 1984 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I spent most of my childhood years growing up in Mulgrave Park, which is a subsidized housing complex in the Halifax's north end.

I grew up like any other average kid in my community, being raised by a single mother working blue collar jobs. As my mother worked cheque to cheque to provide for her three children, my life started heading in a different direction. I was becoming more and more aware of what was going on in my neighbourhood, and none the less I spiraled into a world of negativity fast. That's when I would say I first starting making music, back in the late 90's.

I quickly found my flow when I realized the power I held in words, and as I matured so did my music. From the art of freestyle, I then started making tapes recorded with one of those mini karaoke machines, which quickly turned to cd's. At first I was just making cd's for my friends, and people in my neighbourhood.

I've resided in Nova Scotia, Ontario, British Columbia, doing a few tracks here and there, but I never aimed to make an album just good music. I've done tracks and freestyled with underground artist from Halifax, to Vancouver Island, now that's coast to coast. In 2006 I recorded my first mixtape which has 22 tracks on it. Like anything that you do for the first time, it was a learning experience. It was then I realized how much work there was/is to making a album work, other than just good music.

It was around the same time I had a inspirational moment which led me to release "Crunch Time". It was my cousin, Jordan Croucher or should I say JRDN (shout out to Jordan I know they see you now), and me in the car having a little music freestyle session. When some random guy comes up to the car window, saying he could here us on the radio.

That's when I decided to put together a project that had no curse words or collaborations. The purpose of "Crunch Time" was to get on the radio, and I managed to get on a few different radio stations. As well I performed three tracks off the album during "Music Week Nova Scotia" 2007, so to me the album was a success.

I just started a new business "The J Wildd Show Productions", and our first project "The Musical East Coast" is freshly launched! I wanted to create a community for independent artist to get recognition, so that's what I did! I created an environment for independent musicians across the East Coast. "The Musical East Coast" is here to support artist across the East Coast.

I just finished my latest project "Too Hot To Chill", which is released through Interscope Records. I also just completed "The J Wildd Show", which is a 24 minute and 34 seconds hip hop verse. I actually ended up turning "The J Wildd Show" track into a cartoon. "The J Wildd Show" cartoon, is a four part mini series. Check out the new album, "Too Hot To Chill" available on iTunes now!
