Born into a musical family, J30 is a model, producer, rapper, and singer-songwriter. He is the son of famous leading lady Ellen "ET" Thomas of the old school R&B group Caviar. Growing up in the Bronx, NY surrounded by his mother's Soulful sounds and the Hip-Hop beats in the streets it was inevitable that he would soon become the multi-talented artist known as J30.
He got his first break producing for Ja Rule's (formerly of Murder Inc. Records) new label venture, Mpire Records. He then went on to produce for Hot 97's own DJ Absolut, DJ Green Lantern, Mysonne, Lord Tariq and other various artists. Known for composing melodic basey beats with built-in hooks, J30 became the go-to guy for quick smash hits.
Lacing his beats with vocals reminiscent of Jodeci and Carl Thomas and raps with street savvy lyrics, people took notice of J30's talent and versatility. He produced and featured on N.O.R.E.'s record, 'Get Her' featuring Wale. The response was so positive it led to another collaboration with N.O.R.E for J30's newest single, 'She Ain't Gotta' which is currently circulating the internet and is set to be this summer's street banger.
J30 is steadily building his brand not only as an artist but as an entrepreneur with his indie music company ScholarVMG co-owned with Partner and artist Mala Reignz.
Keep your eyes open and ears peeled because the name J30 is popping up everywhere.
