Born in the mountains of western North Carolina in May of 1989, J started off a life with great future possibilities. Always interested in music no matter what the genre, Youngin' first started recording himself at the age of 13, writing his own nonsense lyrics (lyrics that at the time would make sense to a 13 year old) and right away found a passion and love that would last a lifetime. As teenagers, performing as the group |T.M.S.| J and two childhood friends made way all over W.N.C doing shows, open mic nights, and promoting the music that they had earlier recorded together in a closet at J's mothers house. A natural born leader Youngin' took large steps for the group booking shows, setting up relationships with D.j.'s, promoters, and club management in hope of soon to be success. Attracting the attention of Entertainment Company CEO, Ronnie Dubb in 2008, T.M.S. joined up with Limelight Entertainment and pushed forward doing numerous shows all over the southeast. Attracting great attention from some big names in the industry, J and friends performed shows with names such as Crime Mob, Lil Wil' and various artists from Soulja Boy's label SODMG. Now a solo artist, J. Youngin' still pushes forward with great motivation and ambition with big success in mind. With an uplifting, positive message, from living life to the fullest to working hard for anything you dream to achieve, J will soon prove that with hard work ethic and big dreams, you can achieve anything you set out to accomplish.
