JTheStoryTeller, also known as J Tha Poet, was born and raised in Miami, FL. His mother was the one who sparked all of his love for music and art. When his mother would invite her friends over he would always try to be the center of attention by either dancing or rapping. His mother used to take him with her to open mic nights and since then he started to develop his own craft.
He wrote his first 32 bar verse at the age of 7 and ever since then he’s been rapping and writing poetry since. When he entered into high school he joined the school’s poetry club where he started performing in poetry slams and artistic performances. Since then he’s performed in talent shows at UNF and Art Walks.
He is a part of a rap group called Hip-Hop Re$piration that consists of three other members: Khalil Solomon, Thai WiLLiams, and $upreme. J has released two mixtapes and is now working on his third.
He is defined as the savior to the ears of the youth with his creative sound that is known to inspire rather to embrace ignorance. In his senior year of high school he created the poetry club at his school and ever since then he’s been known to take whatever advantage he can get to spreading his talent.
