Jo Vegas was born into a very strong musical circle and was extremely observant to the creative arts at a very young age and to the realm of competitive sports. Vegas was a bright athletic talent shinning in a collage of different sports, ranging from hockey to football. After an unfortunate football injury, Jo was forced to realign himself; he chose to pursue passionately his musical desires. Childhood friends; up and coming producer Lee Bannon and wildly melodic rapper ODK aggressively convinced Jo to get back to emceeing and to push a new brand of emcee, a new sound for the hip hop/indie scene in Sacramento and its outlying cities. So with that being said, Jo did just that. With his father and uncle both in the business, Vegas quickly learned the anatomy of a successful artist.
