Since the age of 11, J.Griff was very influenced by hip hop. At 12 he began writing his first rhymes and began developing his own style. From elementary school on to high school a lot of things changed in his life. He lost his mother and brother in the same year. Totally confused spritually, he had no idea how the Savior of the world would impact his life. Making a name for himself on the underground Chicago hip hop scene, J.Griff began to feel like something was missing and his music was lifeless. Years later after a frightening experience of almost losing his wife, he was broken by the Lord. Jesus saved his wife's life and redeemed her husbands soul. He couldn't deny what the Lord had done for him. He took a little break from writing to focus more on his relationship with Christ.In the midst of that J was still producing beats and began to get inspired to write again. The first song that was written since his conversion for his classic debut Window 2 My Mind was "Rejoice". Since dropping Window 2 my Mind in 2007, J.Griff has put out four projects, The Journey Collection (Instrumental Album) and Authentic Rhymes # 1 & #2, and His most recent release, "The Light Source".
