Biography

Jonathan Hamilton is something out of the ordinary when it comes to his music. Known in the music world as Jun Tzu, the 22-year-old has already suffered some controversy for the unusually political slant on his lyrics. Jun started writing poetry when he was just nine years old, he travelled around the world with his father who was a traveling Christian preacher at the time. Jun has since won numerous awards for his poetry. Inspired by his Irish heritage, his lyrics are both poetic and political, describing experiences of growing up in Northern Ireland, views on religion and his own take on the rising violence on the streets of Manchester. Jun has now produced his first mixtape, “Forbidden Knowledge,” with a ‘little help’ from Raw Fish Records – a City College record label. He sold over 2000 copies of his first and went onto release Manchesters most controversial CD ever! “Exposure: The Documentry Mixtape”, which features his friend and fellow hip hop artist Chronicle. Already rubbing shoulders with some of the industry’s big named talent, in 2007 Jun toured the country with MTV Base as part of the ‘I Luv Live’ tour. He said: “It was inspiring to take my music on road and perform for different crowds. It gave me a buzz to see how much people liked my music and listened to what I had to say.” While on tour, he met one of Britans most respected Hip hop producers, Baby J, who partly produced Skinnyman’s album “Council Estate of Mind” and made the official remix of the Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson hit “Valerie”, Baby J was so impressed by Jun that he put him on his new album, “Baby Food”, which gave Jun Tzu global exposure! Jun Tzu also toured the U.
