Jmotens been making beatz for about 13 years. Growing up in a very talented musical family.
Starting way back from his grandmother being a beautiful singer and guitarist to his father singing the
blues and gospel music, with a beautiful powerhouse voice, that has brought tears to the eyes of many.
Also, watching his father pick up instruments that he has never played and over time begin to play them
as if it was second nature to him. We're talking the guitar, the piano, the harmonica, etc. A very talented
man. A very inspiring man also. So much that at a very young age JMOTEN and all 4 of his siblings began to
sing and became very interested in music but only 3 pursued it. JMOTEN and 2 of his sisters began to sing at
church, talent shows, etc. In Jr High JMOTEN sang in the honors choir called: Excalibur) and was told by the
choir director herself that he had the best voice that she had ever heard in all her years of directing choirs.
And, to him that was a great achievement. As the years passed by.... JMOTEN started becoming less interested in
the vocals above the beat and became more interested in the beat under the vocals. He started making beats with
whatever he could find. Using his hands and a pencil: Hands as the drum kick and the Pencil for the hats and
snares). Paying more attention to what really made people move and got people listening, which is the heart of
the song. The BEAT. So..... on Christmas at the age of 18 , he was bought his first beat machine. A gift from
his older brother a BOSS-DR5. He then learned how to to play it on his own without a manual. Just by exploring
the machine the way he wanted too. Manuals never really made much sense to him. After learning the basics of the
DR5 he began making beats and showing them to family, friends, friends of friends, and so on... But the thing
about it was everyone really liked them and thought they were fresh. Which inspired him to take his beats to
another level! He started getting better at the beats but didnt have enough equipment to give himself more of
a challenge. To see how good he really could be. Becoming more and more frustrated by the fact that he couldn't
get more equipment, he just stopped making beats all together. Until one day he told himself that" if this is my
dream, and what I want and love to do, and believe that this is my gift then I have to make this happen for
myself". And so......after years of buying, losing, and selling equipment and mastering his technique. We now have
the impressively versatile one and only JMOTEN Tha Beast On Tha Beatz!!!!
"You can't judge 50 based off what the next man did. True Jay bought out his contract but don't think for one second the Live Nation deal didn't make it easier for him to do it. That was already in place for him to get after that Def…"
"man, 50 Cent is finished. even if he decides to release this album it's not gonna sell. he's in the same boat as Dr. Dre, he can't please the music consumers anymore. he's avoided the people and they wrote his a** off already.…"
"no that's where your WRONG, if he did care about his music he would of been bought out his contract or whatever it is to release. Jay bought his contract and released BP3. he's destroying himself as far as he could go. 50 Cent doesn't…"
