BJ INGRAM BIOGRAPHY
Born in 1986 St Louis Missouri is the cradle of this lyrical gladiator. BJ Ingram grew up in a musically inclined family starting from his mother on down the line and it became clear very early that talent runs in the blood. “I had a gift and I always knew it”. In 1993 the family moved from St. Louis, MO to Des Moines, Iowa where BJ Ingram the MC was born. BJ’s talent was always clear to him but it would not stay a secret from others for long. After dabbling in music quietly and fine tuning his style this young mic controller made his debut with the release of his first solo effort, a song entitled “Beastmode”. The Song was dropped in 2004 and was a street hit in his city recalls Ingram. “We just took the cd from person to person, car stereo to car stereo and I knew it was good because when the song was over they’d be like PLAY THAT AGAIN!”
From here BJ with his producer and vocalist “Chuch” and fellow MC and former lyrical rival “Slim” formed the group enVus and started their own record label called Nine Star (Later renamed Hustle Harder Records). At the time BJ was only 19 years old. In 2007 the group released a 17 track album entitled “Perfect Timing” which gain some local buzz and acclaim. The group followed up with another street banger entitled "Special Ed". Like Beastmode before it Special Ed was a street classic and this time local DJ’s took notice giving it spins on-air in BJ’s area.
Today Ingram, who describes his musical style simple as “My Perspective” and credits music in all forms as his major influence continued pushing for his break as a solo artist performing, recording and writing without stop; building a reputation for his hard work that rivaled that of his lyrical capabilities. “Anytime somebody said I got studio tonight or I got a show I was like I’m there period let’s go”. BJ moved to California in 2009 and has been quietly growing and maturing as and man and an artist. BJ feels that it’s time for the world to hear his message. “I sometimes see other people make it and feel like man that should be me. But, I knew that my time will come and I’ve just been spending everyday preparing for it.” Says BJ “I’m Ready” and judging by the doors that have recently opened and the moves being made the world is ready too.
