Jamal Tesfa Wardally is a rapper/singer/songwriter/producer who is widely known by his professional name J.Tesfa.
Tesfa was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and resides in Orlando, Fl. He grew up watching his father produce Reggae and was introduced to hip-hop from his older sister. He fell in love with music shortly after. Growing up in NY where most hip-hop heads listened to artists like Jay-Z and Biggie, Snoop Dogg was his first inspiration. This was his introduction to G-Funk and he credits Snoop Dogg's “Doggystyle” album for his funk curiosity. He then moved on to listen to Parliament, Earth, Wind & Fire, Prince, and other funk artists. J.Tesfa has a unique style and sound. He likes to fuse Hip-Hop, Funk, Soul, and Reggae in his music. His words will take you on a lyrical rollercoaster by bringing light to everyday life experiences. Tesfa took a 7-year hiatus from music in 2010 to pursue other business ventures.
He knew something was missing and It took some soul searching in 2016 to realize music is where his heart is. Tesfa returned to music in 2018 and started creating with local creatives such as Javier Vasconcellos, Kolby Niblack, Aren Gray, and Benjamin Baumewerd. He knew these were the friends that can help bring his ideas to life musically.
J.Tesfa released his first single “Came Too Far” in January 2019 with Suavier and himself on the production. He is currently working on his debut project.
