about

Since the birth of Hip-Hop, MCs have been laying down rhymes about the highs and lows of the ghettos. Unlike most rappers who grew up actually living the stories they tell, JackTerror grew up with a shovel in the country. He learned his hustle from the wax of the greats: NWA, IceT, Ghetto Boys, Too Short and Public Enemy.

JT spent the 90’s moving up and down the East Coast and back and forth from LA. City to city, he stayed submersed in the drug and party scene, surrounding himself with junkies, strippers and hustlers.

The hardcore party life that JackTerror led caught up with him, leaving him with nothing. Deciding there was more to life than the party scene, JT moved to Boston to start a new. He hooked up with producer SteveD and the union between the two proved to be prolific. They focused on JT’s writing and polished his Hip-Hop presentation. The union produced a unique experience fusing the sounds of classic Hip-Hop with lyrics that feel like Tenacious D meets Scarface.

The combination of his experience and growth has produced an explosive album. “Gimme My Monie” is packed with unforgettable tracks like ‘Livin It MF up’, the first joint on the album. This party track has the blazing beats with the icky sticky hook and JT, rap visionary, laying down the bold honesty in the charmingly cocky way that only he can. “It’s just about how I get down, and how everyone gets down to it,” says JT.

With ‘FBI’ he keeps it rippin’ with a deep bass driven track, a smooth soulful hook and a hardcore tale of a kingpins demise, laid in the grimy fashion JT is known so well for. ‘The Hammers Commin Down’ explodes like an assault of adrenalin; JT, along with high octane beats and the stinky funk synth to take you there, leads the listener through another day of a life on the streets.

“Gimme My Monie” is just a glymps of the whirlwind of success to come for JackTerror. “I ain’t stopping for nothin”, says JT, “and you can’t stop this and ain’t nobody that can stop this thing. That’s what it means to be unstoppable.”

Terror is trying to bring to light the reality of street life while maintaining an upbeat and positive attitude. He says, “Music is my sanity. It’s what got me and keeps me off the streets.”

With his Hollywood ready good looks and his funny as hell attitude, it seems JackTerror is the new star who’s fire will burn the shit out of the retinas of anyone who dares to gaze upon him.
