JO2 was born May 14th 1986 in Souel, South Korea and was brought overseas to America when I was 2 years old in 1988. I started music in 2002 with bare minimal equipment and knowledge of how much actually was created. Over the years I have learned how to engineer my own music and did show by making songs over industry instrumentals. I needed to get a second ear on things so I started going to studios in 2005 and letting producers engineer my music to have that edge. I have been doing shows and performing since 2004, and since then I have done over 150 performances in cities in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, North Carolina, and Indiana. I have opened up for Tech N9ne, Anybody Killa, Big Sean, Mac Miller, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, Cappadonna of Wu-Tang. I have personally met Machine Gun Kelly, Tech N9ne, and Cappadonna. Doing music has been a bring dream of mine growing up and being influenced by songs that I could relate to. But creating music, I wanted my unique sound, so I brought a rock band into my hip hop roots to create something new and fresh! I didnt want to sound like everyone else on the radio or underground scene. I have toured with a group known as “GLASS CITY” which is made up M-Eighty (Wu-Tang Affiliate/Killer Beez Records Artist) and Nino Graye (Toledo, Ohio) which consisted of 23 show stops. I pressed my First EP “Sucka Free: The EP” and instantly sold 100 the day of the Cappadonna (Wu-Tang Clan) show in Ohio at my first stop, as well as 50 shirts the same night. The EP consisted of all original music produced by C-Fifth (Toledo) and Evelution Beats (Germany). In which I met Raine Wilder and created the song “Believe ft. Raine Wilder(Toledo, Ohio) and Alicia Renee Produced by Evelution Beats (Germany). I write all of my music, and most of my music is engineered by Randy Wilson of APE Studios.
