J. ManifestO has loved hip hop ever since he was young. Born in New York, raised in Queens, he recalls getting his first taste of hip hop at his grandfathers house, seeing a Snoop Doggy Dogg video (probably Gin N Juice) on T.V. and has been in love with the music ever since. He started rapping back in 2006 during his senior year in high school after being inspired by his two friends JohnNY U. and J. Monopoly. He started writing rhymes and recording songs through a small microphone in his mom's room. After a couple months of his new found love, he linked back up with his high school friends, and formed a group called O.I.S.D. As a group they released several projects. Recently, J. ManifestO has released a solo, self-titled mixtape. With more music to come in the near future.
