What up. My family calls me James, my friends call me various things depending on how they feel, and my fans know me as J.R. or Jah Rhythm. I was born in Denver, CO raised mostly in tha 'Middle East'( Washington D.C. Metropolitan area, MD, DC, VA) and i now live in Sweden. My mother raised me with Seventh Day Adventist Christian values, and life taught me to rebel and find my own path. In chosing my own direction in life i can be very indicisive and seem to contradict myself quite a bit, but if you observe my art and/or get tha chance to have a real conversation with me, i will almost always get you thinking. I've grown up with Hiphop music as one of tha main influences in my life beginning with tha release of tha first commercially successful rap record 'Rappers Delight'. I've lived in all types of neighborhoods, from ghetto to middle class and i've had friends and acquaintances from varied and divers backgrounds. Through my friendships and acquaintances i've been exposed to many different lifestyles and religions. All these things play a factor in my creative endeavors and in tha choosing of material that i wish to promote. I consider myself as one who has an open mind, but i am set in ways enough to have my own identity and standard mode of operation. I am always changing form and growing as a person. But if you ever have truly sampled a piece of my soul then you will never mistake tha spirit of tha one known as Jah Rhythm. Like the ocean i am constant, and constantly shifting.
