With persistence, growth is inevitable—this was clear to see as he caught the attention of several artists, such as Timbaland, in a Korean hip-hop competition show "Show Me The Money,” setting ablaze stages on his native soil. In 2016, Juno packed his bags and moved to South Korea, signing with label Feel Ghood Music to release an EP (Only Human) and full length album (STATUES), boasting noteworthy Korean artist features such as Drunken Tiger, Dok2, Jay Park, BoA, and Yoonmirae.
“Adapting to a new environment and culture is hard, but that’s what we do. We adapt, we learn, and we level up” he says. “TWISTED”, a westcoast inspired track, climbed the Korean charts and had fans throwing up the westside “W” hand symbol nationwide. Junoflo remarkably executed his artistic pursuit to prove his abilities in the Korean and American hip-hop scene, blending two languages with ease.
Now returning home as an independent artist with his latest record, 222:AM, Junoflo shows a melodic evolution. While consisting of a moody and ethereal soundtrack, 222:AM embodies a futuristic yet nostalgic feel, supplied by wavy synths, piano riffs over hard hitting 808’s, and layers of introspective flows that illustrate his experiences.
