J. Oliver |Featured Artist

Less than three years ago, J Oliver quit his job in his native Baltimore and moved to sunny Los Angeles in hopes of making his longtime dreams a reality. With $50 in his pocket and a contract that would eventually prove fruitless, it wasn’t long before he ended up having to return home and hit the ‘reset’ button. Sometimes though, the best thing to do is sit still, be around the familiar and create something bigger and even better.

2013 was a big year for J Oliver. There were a lot of relationships built, a lot of placements made — from Meek Mill’s “Ain’t Me” and Kirko Bangz’ cut “Old Ways” to French Montana’s “I Told ‘Em” on his debut LP– and just like that, the multi-talented independent is far beyond where he was struggling to make ends meet during that fateful year in LA. One of the catalysts in his accomplishments to date was meeting well-respected Radio Raheem in Miami and taking advantage of the opportunities provided by the industry veteran. Another is the growing friendship between himself and fellow Baltimore native, Los. “Los is like a big brother to me,” he shares. “Without him, I wouldn’t have been able to do a lot of the things that I’ve done. He pushes me to this limit where I could do anything.”

He hopes to prove his worth beyond his city with the upcoming release of his as-yet-untitled debut project which he says is guaranteed to be in top three of whatever drops around the same time — even though he hasn’t set an official date. “I want people to take away the emotions that I put into my music…,” he insists. “The realness. Everything that I go through in life. Even the way that I live my life which is constant partying, women and working. All those put into one. Sometimes my music is a little too personal to where I’ll have to reconstruct a few things.” Working with T. Cole whose songwriting credits include both Chris Brown and Usher and already having his sound locked in gives J Oliver more of a confident edge over any other newcomer to the industry. Having had the chance to see Jay perform live it was obvious from the show that his star is on the rise. A big eye needs to be kept on him in 2014 and beyond without a doubt.
