Everybody has a story to tell. ChampionsOnly98’s J.Anthny‘s just so happens to be an amazing one. From growing up in less than ideal circumstances in South Central LA, to having kids young and turning his life around, J.Anthny has been places and seen things that the average just hear about in their favorite rap lyrics.
I first heard of J.Anthny when his premiere single under the ChampionsOnly98 imprint, “Where’s Your Money (Don’t I?)” floated in my inbox. I was immediately impressed by his raw songwriting, unique perspective and hustler mentality that all my real ones can relate to. So, you know I just had to follow up by catching up with J.Anthny for an interview this past week before his ‘Two Sides‘ EP dropped.
Normally, W.Coast.K interviews only last 10 minutes, 15 tops. But, this one tripled that. Not only because J’s story is an interesting one, but because he has a natural ability to draw you in with his words. Tie flew and my camera overheated. No lie. But, it was well worth it, as he dropped some major gems on staying true to yourself throughout the struggle and never giving up on your dreams.
So, get to know J.Anthny before he blows up by catching his extended interview above. Also, don’t forget to pick up a copy of his ‘Two Sides‘ EP below if you’re feeling him as an artist and overall dope individual.
