Hip Hop/Metal Artist JAWZ Opens Up About His New Single And Self-Titled EP, His Chicago Roots And More In This Exclusive Interview

May 16, 2016  |  No Comments

IMG_0359Born and raised on Chicago’s north side, JAWZ has always been the entertainer, showing definite signs of creativity early on — from acting, drawing, joking and on to music. Growing up in the 90s was no easy task; JAWZ experienced street life up close and personal. JAWZ dropped out of school and became a member of the infamous Simon City Royals street gang. Heavy drug use and illegal activities resulted in numerous arrests, but despite his shortcomings JAWZ somehow managed to stay creative throughout those years. By 1999, after years of failed attempts at forming a stable line-up with his own Thrash Metal outfit, “MOM” (Menace Over Mankind), JAWZ began rhyming. Deeply familiar with Hip Hop and excited with the idea of becoming a solo artist, JAWZ welcomed the change in genres.
