As a Los Angeles-based rapper, producer, singer and songwriter, Mr. J. Medeiros has carved his own path in Hip Hop. Known for his unique poetic rhyme style, cinematic story-telling, and strong social commentary, Mr. J’s sound is genuine, timeless, and profound.
Medeiros got his start when he formed the Hip-Hop group, The Procussions, in his hometown of Colorado Springs, CO. Following the buzz of their first single, Medeiros spearheaded their relocation to Los Angeles. The band would go on to enjoy five successful years in Hip Hop’s underground scene, touring the world and garnering critical acclaim for both their recorded and live performances. Some of their more notable achievements include touring with Hip Hop icons A Tribe Called Quest and The Roots, and collaborating with Talib Kweli on their single “Miss January”. The trio had two independent releases, “As Iron Sharpens Iron” and their EP “Up All Night”. Their sophomore album, “5 Sparrows for 2 Cents”, was the first release on Rawkus Records’s revamped label. The group disbanded in 2007 on good terms. – Website / Facebook / Twitter
