Mississippi Rapper/Producer J. Skillz Signs With Expat Records.

Mississippi Rapper/Producer J. Skillz Signs With Expat Records.

The Acclaimed Underground Hip Hop Artist and CEO Of A.N.B.O.S. Music & Entertainment Will Be Releasing His Latest EP ‘I’m From Mississippi’ In July 2011.

J. Skillz is an acclaimed artist/producer from Carthage, Mississippi and also the founder and C.E.O. of A.N.B.O.S. Music & Entertainment, an independent label based out of Jackson, MS. The Mississippi rapper has been a very active figure on the underground hip hop scene since 2006, receiving much attention for both his skills as a rapper as well as a producer.

J. Skillz’s rapping career began at the age of 15 when he began performing at house parties and free styling with childhood friends. At age 18, he started learning how to make his own beats, and began producing for other Mississippi based artists. In 2004 J. Skillz formed the group ‘Flatline Foot Soldiers’ with fellow Mississippi rappers
Ceno, Jackball G., Hollow Tip, and Slugg G.

By age 21, J. Skillz was running a recording studio in West Jackson, MS where he was signed by Deep South Productions and as an artist/producer. Despite his street single "Boppaz” feat. J.Cutta, & Platinum C gaining strong interest, the album was never released due to unforeseen label circumstances. The Mississippi rapper later decided to start his own label, A.N.B.O.S Music & Entertainment, and began releasing a series of mixtapes which reached many fans across the US, with one selling over 5,000 copies.

J. Skillz has produced no less than three of the most talked about singles to come out of Mississippi in recent years with "I Just Wanna Talk 2 U" by Smacka Batch, "Paper Chasers" by Treasure Troll, and "Showin Out" by Rah Fontaine. His own single "Haccuna Matata feat. 3d, & Reece$Money" from the "I'm Gon Shyne" mixtape was placed into heavy rotation on Hot 97.7 in Jackson, MS.

J. Skillz who has recently renamed himself "J.Skillz The King" to avoid confusion with other artists using the name ‘J.Skillz’, has been recording his official E.P, ‘I’m from Mississippi’ which will be released in July 2011 on Expat Records.

Jeff Libby CEO of Expat Records comments “I’m from Mississippi is an instant southern classic, which deserves to firmly put J. Skillz and Mississippi on the Hip Hop Map. With a variety of styles and incredible production, it will give fans a good idea of what they can expect from the forthcoming J.Skillz The King album due out later in 2011”.

Mississippi rapper, J. Skillz The King, is part of the Expat Records roster, which includes Dylan Dilinjah, (star of MTV’s Making The Band) and Nickelodeon actress, Angelique ‘Alizay’ Bates.
