Miami born and bred rapper, J. Roots has a passion for music. As a child he played the trumpet and his musical nature led him to create beats when one of his friends dared him to rap on a track, and thus J.Roots was born. Influenced by the likes of T.I., Outkast, Ice Cube,Lil Wayne and Tupac, J. Roots molded his own style always writing from life experiences. His sound combines elements from his gritty-Miami upbringing with intonation and flows that he perfected while living in Atlanta thus creating a hybrid Southern/Miami sound.
J.Roots released his first mixtape in 2007 titled, Stupid Face, and has followed that release with Whisper to the Streets, The Run Down, Unfazed, Fazed In and more. He’s collaborated with the likes of Eddie Keys, producer of Lil Wayne’s “Phone Home,” and D-Block. J. Roots’ video for “Boss” featuring Rick Ross boasts almost 250,000 views on YouTube and his “Take it There” video featuring Drama locked in over 100,000 views.
