Johnny Word was raised and still resides in East Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Passionate about hip-hop from an early age, Johnny began writing and recording on his fathers karaoke stereo around the age of 13.
Free-styling in parks and back alleys late into the night and performing at local fairs and high-school talent shows. But as he got older making money took precedent over making music . Although he would still write and record all the time, he wasn't focused on releasing or promoting his music, he was too caught up in the day to day. His daily routine slowly became blunt smoke filled days and late club nights and this lifestyle eventually led to an alcohol addiction, which he just recently kicked after his first official mix-tape release "Blunt Force Trauma", just over 2 years ago. Quitting drinking gave him a new perspective on life and motivated him to start taking his music seriously, " I realized that there was more to life than just making money and partying . I realized life is too short not to follow your dreams."
