From: NC, United States
Genre: Hip Hop/Rap, Hip-Hop Renaissance
I am a native of Salt Lake City, Utah and from Alexandria, VA. I found an especially gratifying interest in writing poetry at the ripe age of 17. This love of words and rhymes soon developed into a passion for songwriting, giving me the ability to express my innermost feelings with colorful, descriptive words and music. Through the years of experience and obedience to God I was able to evolve into the lyrical genius of The Jastin Artis Project. I am here to change the game with my eclectic mix of hip-hop, acoustic, and poetry; carefully fused with a gospel tone now called hip-hop renaissance. This God inspired twist on gospel music and music as a whole will not only cause a metamorphosis in the industry but it will cultivate the minds of the next generation in how you perceive and create the next genre in music. Not only am I an artist but I am deeply passionate about giving back to the community with youth and those like minded. I am the bridge from where you are to where you want to be. I've released three CD's in two years. Firtst, The Birth of Jastin Artis Vol. 1 (Feb. 2010); second, The Birth of Jastin Artis Vol. 2 *RISE OF THE PHOENIX* (Aug. 2010); and most recently (Aug. 2011), From Death to Destiny. I recently got married in Sept. 2012.
