It is widely believed that true character is built through adversity.
For J. Carter, you could say he’s lived through his fair share.
Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, Hip Hop producer and rapper J. Carter found himself caught up in a whirlwind of financial struggles, drugs, crime, and at its worst -- the tragic death of his brother K.O. Though beyond all of this was a driving passion to succeed in the music industry. J would put himself out there as much as he could, getting his music in front of as many people as humanly possible. Good things come to those who work hard, and J. Carter’s story of success is no exception. Being the naturally proactive spirit he is, J organized groups of young rappers and went on to form the group called TSC. They participated and won multiple talent contests and were getting the recognition they deserved in Ohio, though their success was cut short due to creative differences. Not one to lose hope, J continued to make beats out of his humble basement. His craft began to attract the attention of industry heads, and one man by the name of Gary Martinis was quick to initiate conversation. Gary invited J. to become a strong part of his label, ‘Spittin Rhymes Productions’ in 2014, and the rest is history. Gary played a pivotal role in the progression of J’s career. In fact, it was Gary’s influence and mentorship that gave J the confidence to throw his voice into the mix, instead of being just a purebred beatmaker. Fast forward to today, and J has propelled his career into the spotlight as both a rapper and producer. He has since gone on to produce beats for K. Stylus, Lil Keed, Skooly, Lazy Bone and Humble G Tha Fiddla. Today, he continues to dish out world-class productions and has numerous collaborations currently in the works. J dedicates his life’s work to his brother K.O., using his memory as motivation to succeed and make his brother proud. His next release is an ode to his brother, a single that he looks to release in the first half of 2020. Further release details to follow.
