Here, Mr J shares a few insights about his life, his music and his beliefs…
What do you do in your everyday life – what’s your livelihood?
I love to write, record and perform music, And spend time with family and friends.
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about music. I feel that God had bless me with a gift to share with the world. Even if sometimes the message may come off as a little BOLD, It still needs to be heard.
How long have you been drug, tobacco and alcohol free?
All of my life, I never did a drug, smoked, or drunk alcohol/liquor in my life. I thank God that I grew up in a house where my family as well didn’t do those things.
Why are you drug, tobacco and alcohol free?
It was never for me. I grew up in a City and around people that could not go 5 minutes without a smoke, or drink. I hate what drugs have done to my community. I see humans that look like zombies. They’re lost and so far gone. I promise to always stand tall against that.
Do you have any life tips for others that you’d like to share?
Always be yourself. Believe in yourself. Follow God, and Chase Dreams
