My name is J Brown. I was born and raised in the windy city of Chicago. Chicago is a very musical city and in the 90s there was a raw hip-hop scene developing. I can remember parties where you had cats breaking and doing graffiti to the sounds of native tongues. I relocated to the tri-state area in 2000 to be in the mix of New York and Philadelphia. My sound is old soul samples with layered instrument arrangements. The sped up samples thing has come to be a Chicago trademark, although sometimes i might not even use samples. As far as styles I can pretty much do every style from pop to r&b and of course hiphop. My musical in?uences are vast. As far as producers, Kanye West, No ID, Dr Dre, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Q-tip, J Dilla, RZA, Quincy Jones, LA and Baby Face, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Jazz is also a big in?uence on me. Miles Davis and John Coltrane are my favorites. i have worked with Nas, Swizz Beatz, Cassidy, Lox, Prodigy, Carl Thomas, TUG records, French Montana, King L, Carl Thomas, FUBU records, Cashis, etc
