Despite growing up on the east side of Saginaw, Michigan—a city known for its horrifying murder rate and segregated communities—J. Anise attended and graduated college. She won AAU basketball championships with a petite body, despite the sport usually rewarding height and muscle. And she decided to take a stab at hip-hop, even though women often get the short end of the stick in the music and the culture.
Since her last release, J. Anise has been preparing for THIS moment. She is more focused, more poised and ready to deliver her best project to date. "I want the world to know that there can be more than one successful female hip-hop artist. I also want people to realize they can be themselves and not copy everything you see." Higher Than Most Mixtape makes the perfect statement.
