Get To Know About MC David J

MC David J is a hip hop rapper, songwriter, producer and instrumentalist from Atlanta Georgia. He spent his formative years travelling all over the United States of America. Due to these travels, he has been introduced to many different people, all of whom would have unique stories to tell of him.

It was through these interactions that he found his profound love for music, namely Jazz, which would be the foundation in making MC David J into the artist he is today. At the tender age of 7, his passion was then intensified when he started to learn to play instruments such as the piano, guitar, trumpet and the drum machine making him a multi-talented musician.

His first exposure to Hip Hop was when he watched his father break dancing to artists such as Melle Mel, Sugar Hill Gang and Run DMC. This would be the spark for David at only 10 years old to start writing his first rhymes. When he discovered artists such as Dr Dre, The Roots, The Notorious B.I.G, Eazy-E and Slick Rick this would only add more fuel to the fire burning inside of him.
