JunSix started emceeing after hearing “Raising Hell” by Run DMC at the age of 10 and has been doing it ever since. After performing in and winning a rap contest at 11, he decided that he wanted to make a career out of music. Since then, his music has allowed fans to get to know him as a battle emcee, a poet and a vocalist.
JunSix’s style has gotten him compared to the likes of Q-tip, Talib Kweli, Common and Ghostface. However, JunSix considers his influences to range from Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Rakim, Biggie, Tupac and Das EFX to Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye for various reasons. An “against the grain” artist, JunSix focuses on words which defines his style. He chooses to entertain as well as educate which results in lyrical content that leads into a catchy hook. Musically, one can look for influences from soul and jazz to even rock.
A JunSix album takes you on a ride that goes from pure emceeing to feeling good to just bluntly giving you food for thought. Ultimately, his music is honest and reflects where he is when he writes what he writes.
His second release and first release on his own label Junnybaby Music is titled “Operation Brainwash” and was released on March 29th, 2011. This is an album that features a bridging of the gap between party-energized hip hop beats and feel-good lyrics.
JunSix has released his second Junnybaby release titled “The Art of Smiling” on July 7th, 2014 which desires to further push the musical envelope, featuring the bass-heavy first single “Clothesline” and the inspirational single “Sunshine”. The album features styles that range from 808's and base to backpack hip hop to EDM hip hop to even the doo-wop sound of "#just2Byournumber1".
Not stopping there, JunSix is planning to return to the studio soon to begin work on his third Junnybaby Music project titled, "SuperFun".
