The true originator of the mixtape with his ‘Heat on the Street’ volumes from 2003/4, J2K is one of those MC’s who transcends the grime and hip hop scenes purely on talent alone. J2K is a grime MC from East London, and joined the grime crew Roll Deep in early 2008. |
J was catapulted onto the tip of everyone’s tongues back in 2005 following collaborations with Crazy Titch as the Alliance and Shystie on the ‘One Wish’ remix, and after a short sabbatical he entered 2008 on fire. Having locked down the whole download scene, with mixtape after mixtape in 2007, he released his reintroduction CD ‘Who Am I’ featuring The Mitchell Brothers and Baby Blue in 2008. He then proceeded to lay down the heat with Roll Deep for 2009, as well as piece together his own solo project with single and video releases scheduled for Spring and Summer releases.
