URB - "JNaturaL is LA's hottest upcoming female emcee"
Rap Reviews - "Even when she talks about sex, baby, she does so in a more refined and less crass way than other rappers who seem singularly focused on charming men into doing their bidding through sex appeal. In this way she becomes the West coast version of Jean Grae, not fearing the power of her vocal and bodily appeal, but more likely to appeal to both her male and female audience through the power of her mind and her oration."
Scratched Vinyl - "JNatural might be small in stature, but when I saw her in concert recently, she commanded the attention of men twice her size. She possesses a big voice and switches between a soulful singing voice that’s reminiscent of Joyo Velarde and a rapping style that is obviously influenced by her Project Blowed elders."

Do you have an "I Freestyle Life" hoodie yet? Do you remember those pink "I Freestyle Life" t-shirts where most of the ink washes off? While we have a few of those defective shirts left and while they last we'll be throwing in a defective pink shirt with every hoodie purchase.
Email Brady your shirt size if it differs from the size of the hoodie you purchased, thanks!
*Over the past year (which has been long and chaotic to say the least) I have received a significant number of emails from folks expressing interest in taking advantage of my 1-on-1 "Rap" course, as well as numerous requests from artists looking to create collab tracks together. This winter will be spent doing both, so for those of you who have been patiently waiting and who are serious now is the time to reach out. I would love to follow through and fulfill your requests. Contact me at this email address with either: "Collab" or "1-on-1" in the subject field. Thanks. -Chris
