About “Viral Bars“:
“Viral Bars“ is the latest video from Bronx, New York rapper J-Jon, different from his last two viral videos “C.O.P.” & “Pretty Again” which collectively amassed over 10 million views on Facebook. J-Jon decides to take things back to the essence of hip-hop by spitting straight bars over the Swizz Beatz “Classic” instrumental. Shot in the birthplace of hip hop, The Bronx, J-Jon modernizes every bar with references of today’s most trendy internet topics from El Chapo escaping prison to Donald Trump’s recent comments about Mexicans.
J-Jon is a 23-year-old New York City rapper who grew up in a single-mother household in The Bronx. His love for rap music began at the age of 11 when his older brother Jay, who is now a professional DJ, brought home a Sikamore instrumental mixtape & challenged his little brother to a rap battle. Inspired by the 50 Cent & Ja-Rule beef at the time, they started putting a lethal array of bars together to embarrass each other & in the process J-Jon showed early signs of a kid who was competitive & carried a gift with words. From that moment on, he fell in love with hip-hop & knew he wanted to use it as a tool to express himself through music.
At 12 years old, J-Jon snuck his mother’s tape recorder out her bedroom & started recording freestyles over famous instrumentals. He was so fascinated with the ability to create music that, at 14, he saved up $20 to buy his first microphone at Radio Shack & immediately started recording. After several failed attempts of spamming every music executive and A&R he could find, he decided to bypass the executives & create music that would directly connect with his listeners. Since then, he’s giving hip-hop lovers across the world timeless records such as “Did I Lose You Yet“, “Criminals Of Permission“, “Pretty Again“, & “Bussing Your Gun Don’t Make You A Gangsta“. J-Jon’s music has amassed over 15 million views collectively worldwide across all social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook, & World Star Hip Hop. J-Jon is now recognized by thousands of people in the New York City hip hop scene as one of the best unsigned reality rappers who isn’t afraid of speaking about what it is like dealing with everyday struggles such as heartbreaks, poverty, violence, & police brutality.
Music blogs such as Real Entertainment News & Daddy’s Hangout have called J-Jon one of the best upcoming rappers in New York City…J-Jon is expected to release his debut project in 2016!!!
