Biography

New York City (1995 – present)

J-Live was born and raised in Uptown Manhattan, New York City. After making a home for himself in Brooklyn upon graduating from SUNY at Albany, J relocated to Philadelphia in 2003. “Moving to Philly was more for the family than any kind of career move. But the whole music scene here and the hip hop community here have embraced me with open arms since I arrived. I’ve gotten a lot of support from so many different artists and dee jays. This city is jam packed with talented and beautiful people.”

J-Live started his career by releasing solid 12” such as “Longevity”, “Braggin’ Writes”, and “Hush the Crowd”, which earned him a spot in The Source’s “Unsigned Hype” column.

Recorded mostly at J’s own Triple Threat Studios in Philadelphia, The Hear After actually seems to have taken on a life of its own. Guest vocalist on the album, include up and coming artist, Kola Rock, Cvees, and the soulful sounds of Virgin recording artist, Dwele. The album features production by Floyd the Locsmif (Atl), Hezekiah, James Poysner (Philly), Probe DMS, Fire Dept., (NYC), Oddisee (DC), and J-Live himself. “The title is a play on words. People think of the here after as the after life or somewhere you go when you die. Like heaven or hell. Me personally, I see heaven as being at peace with yourself while you’re alive. I see hell as the path you choose in life as opposed to a place you go after death.
