"L.A. Leakers Indie Pick Of The Week : J Woods"

The industry has seen a rise in artists that are multi-talented with the abilities to both sing and rap. J Woods is exactly that prototype.

Repping Toledo, Ohio by way of Los Angeles, Woods moved to the West Coast to increase his value as an artist and to gain exposure.

“In Ohio we don’t got any outlets for music foreal everybody know us for Bone-Thugs & Harmony or MGK,” he said. “So I decided to move to LA cause everything was moving.”

In LA he caught the attention of rapper, Glasses Malone, whom he began to do hooks for and then he teamed up with Joe Moses who threw him on his debut album, ‘Brackin.’

The Joe Moses collaboration has done really well and put Woods on a platform he probably wouldn’t have got to if he would’ve stayed in Toledo.

Aside from rapping and singing, the 23-year-old is a well-versed musician having played drums and the violin.

“When I was young I used to play in plays for school, church etc.,” he said. “Every chance I could get I’d be in something dealing with music.”

Music has been a lifelong interest for Woods beginning with singing at 3-years-old and rapping at the age of 8. He recalls recording his own music at 12-years-old on cassette tapes and eventually moving on to computer microphones and Pro Tools.

Through the years he has really evolved as an artist and hopes to one day be able to work with his top two inspirations, Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa.

“At the end of the day I want my daughter and my family to make sure we all good and we can all just live,” he said. “It’s hard coming from where I’m from people never really make it out so I keep my city on my back everywhere I go and rep for Ohio every chance I get.”
