At the age of 12 he started rapping, freestyling on his way home and to school. And at age of 13 he started rocking shows, entering battles. At the age of 17 J Rocc hooked up with his long time friend Chris James, a.k.a. Just Chris, and got a studio where they could literally teach each other how to produce, write songs, mix down tracks, etc. They stayed together strong for a couple of years and made music that shook their small city of Simi Valley, until that fateful day in 2001 when the studio burnt down. Dealing with his own struggles with life, family, friends, music and all other personal issues J Rocc decided to take his anger out on a pad of paper. In 2002, Just Chris came back from school with an Engineering degree. J Rocc was like a kid in a candy store. He and his long time friend could now officially make music together. Bringing their other long time friend Mike Bruner a.k.a. Faceless into the group. Together they formed Pocket Change.
