Justin "Jayy Maadniss" Walden, the DMV native, is an artist, producer, songwriter, etc. Most likely what you're looking for in an artist he does it or can figure out how to do it.
Born in Portsmouth, VA, he's been travelling all over the country ever since he was born, experiencing different walks of life and types of music. Being born a military baby already gave him certain benefits and drawbacks... He just graduated from High School in June 2012, which was one out of over 10 schools he's been to in his life in different cities and states such as Texas, North Carolina, etc.
He wrote his first rap in 4th grade for a school assignment, and after that he didn't become serious about it until he was about 14, but kept it a secret until his 11th grade year. He also does poetry and writes about the struggle of the ghetto, the drawbacks of life, and love. He's the kind of person wants to learn, and if he doesn't know something then he'll find out by any means neccesary. That is the reason why he does a lot individually because he's an artist, and believes if he wants something done correct then he must do it himself.
Judging from his choice of beats, art and lyrics he's not an ordinary artist. The name "Maadniss" came from his cousin Primas, another rapper who described Justin's vibe when he's rapping, as pure madness, but it was of course changed around to conform to individuality seeing as how not too many rappers have the name 'Maadniss' nor spells it that way.
Being as though he's grown up poor all his life money is a matter but it's not a consistancy to him, and his creative control is open to comments, but he handles it and mixes how he believes fans will like and listen to it.
