After the disillusionment of early adulthood and a failed attempt at college "Trap Preacher" J Alston sold his car and moved to Atlanta with no money and dreams of a successful rap career.
He worked tirelessly at perfecting his craft through daily writing or studio sessions and over 200 live performances. It wasn't long before he linked with other talented creatives in the city and formed a tight-knit rap collective called Free Air Free Water.
Music journalists and those most familiar with the rap upstart describe J Alston's musical style as a hybrid between rap superstars DMX and J Cole. If you ask Alston himself, he will describe his approach as putting "medicine in the candy". Heartfelt themes of purpose, faith, and hope are delivered with visceral and vulnerable vocals over hard-knocking trap beats.
In addition to his one of a kind vocal tone, J Alston's songwriting prowess is another superpower in his arsenal. He's put this on display by penning a hit for an Epic Records recording artist and his 2018 placement in a Nike Elite Hoops Basketball campaign.
