Well known in his home town of Cleveland, C.J. is a living definition of the word hustler. His love of music, money and progression, not necessarily in that order, fueled his entrepreneurial spirit. By the time he graduated high school he was running 3 successful businesses and had established himself as a proven event's promoter through out the mid west and further extended himself to the east coast. With a swagger that easily matched that of the acts he was promoting at the time (Lil' Flip, Fabolous, and Beanie Segal to name a few.), C.J. was often mistaken for a rapper himself. Being young and focused on fast money, C.J. was unimpressed by the constant barrage of people asking for his autograph at events, or by the record executives that often approached him; he was on a paper chase his way, but his passion for music never subsided.
After a minor set back gave him the time he needed to focus, C.J.'s love of music fueled his ambition and he delivered his first mix tape release Get It and Go, Volume I, which generated over 15,000 sales and solidified himself on the Cleveland music scene. But making the move from underground to mainstream music, while maintaining street credibility, can be an impossible feat at best for most rappers. Only a chosen few have the ability to stay true to their roots and posses the business savvy to be a success with out "selling out". As one of the newest additions to this "big boy league", C.J., is making this transition seamlessly. In his debut singles "Party Pack" and "Paper Man" C.J. gives us a glimpse into the life of a true hustler. His trademark blend of street conscious lyrics and intricate rhyme scheme has quickly earned him respect through out the hip hop community. In "Going Back to Dewitt's" he pays homage to his hood and gives props to his favorite jeweler, Cleveland's own Dewitt's Jewelry made famous by many of Ohio's sports and entertainment figures. Unlike many of today's artist, you will find no rented "ice" and "whips" in this young man's repertoire.
Obviously once this young man is on task, there is no stopping him. C.J. has stepped on the scene with the unmatched swagger of a seasoned professional and rising star. Now working with platinum producer Kickdrums, who has created hit after hit for the likes of 50 Cent, Slim Thug, Young Joc and countless others; we can only and enjoy the ride as we listen to the sounds that embody this self made professional, always ready to "Get It And Go".
