SORT BY Relevancy
**ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE...**
JPlus (Jessie J. Andrews) taps into the heart and soul of hip-hop as a versatile MC, lyricist, and producer. His refreshingly silver-tongued creativity flows from a turbulent past, and serves as a call to change the social and economic inequity that saturates society.
A paragon of clashing brilliance with a crumbling society, “Tripolar” explores the three personas J has created to survive. ‘Jessie’ is a hopeful, intelligent young man who wants to have the same opportunity to succeed, regardless of color, creed or culture. ‘JPlus’ is entrepreneurial and confident—the “Urban King”—whose street-smarts allow him to escape the toils of the ghetto. ‘Muzzle Off’ is the third, the darkest, the most ruthless, the metabolite of societal churning: he is a hateful monster who stews in blame—blame towards a world that stole his humanity and forced a personal choice between poverty or violent crime.
But can you blame him? Growing up poor, Jessie had to visit homeless shelters, watch his mother get beat, and try to make sense of his father’s abusive tendencies and repeated incarcerations. Jessie started using music to break free, because death, both figurative and literal, was the only alternative. At the young age of 8, J began his grueling upward climb, memorizing Eminem verses and spitting rhymes with his childhood friend Sin-City.
At 26, JPlus has released seven albums, many self-produced, to include “Wasted Talent", “Force of Habit", “New Time Sake", “L.Y.R.I.C.S." just to name a few. no doubt earning himself a future honorary doctorate in English Composition. With a good set of ears, you’ll have no problem groovin’ to every track’s unique instrumentals, whether based in jazz, hardcore, R&B, or rock.

Join Ms.P, Sienna J, Abbey and Darius chat it up with J'Plus, Emmanuel and Phillip Hudson.
Emmanuel and Phillip Hudson were born in Mississippi in 1990 and 1992 the youngest of 8 boys to an awesome pair of God fearing parents, Roger and Brenda Hudson. The family moved to Jonesboro, Ga in 1998 where the brothers quickly made a name for themselves as the funniest guys in their schools, dancing, joking, and rapping to bring each of their classrooms to uncontrollable amounts of laughter every day.
Against The Grain features the combined talents of prominent NY solo artists (Madness, JPlus, Mike Arson, Sin-City, Kaine and Masai) into one eclectic super-group.
Their first collaborative mixtape features some of the rawest and wittiest lyrical delivery that New York has to offer.
