Meet J-Hot

Today we’d like to introduce you to J-Hot.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I’m a kid from Brooklyn, NY raised by a single mother that grew up loving Hip-Hop culture. I started rapping songs out loud and to myself in the mirror very young around the age of 4-5. Then I didn’t start writing my own songs until I was about 14, and I didn’t start recording music until I was almost 16. I got my legs on stage doing various open mics and showcases around NYC, and over the years, music has always been a very on and off thing for me. But over the last year and a half, I’ve tried to be as consistent as I possibly can.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not always been a smooth road, especially being an independent artist. You basically pay for and handle everything on your own, from video shoots to studio time, to marketing. There has been some really great moments, but overall it is a very bumpy road along the way.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am an emcee/artist. I make Hip-Hop/rap music, and I pride myself on being a wordsmith and not just putting together nonsense to make a song sound good. I make very emotional/energy-driven music.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I visited Denver for the first time a few months back, I loved the fact that there are more cannabis dispensaries than there are Starbucks. I also loved the fact that the people of Denver were so welcoming and kind. My least favorite part was seeing certain things that reminded me of being back home in NYC, I came in contact with a lot of drug addicts and homeless people. And it just gave me flashes of being back home and seeing my people struggle is never fun.
