Deon "Jus Ra" Flynn was born in Flint Michigan. He grew up in a household of 5 (mother, father, younger brother, older brother) in a pretty decent neighborhood. Music was always a big part of his life so taking it up as a profession was only a matter of time. During his years as a recording artist he's worked with labels such as Greyt records owned by Mark Taylor and artists such as: Alumni, Shava Jay, E-1C a.k.a Slim City, Crown Black and Jon E. Fontane. He also formed a small group of artists known as the Wide Nation. In 2005 Jus Ra met up with two producers named Rio and P’Caso. The three along with another producer, J-Duces, came together to make a label called Block Symphony. They later became Ill Konceptz Music Group due to creative and business differences. In 2007 Jus ra along with Ill Konceptz released a mixtape called The Cypher. The project, entirely produced in house, was received very well in the streets and on college radio stations. Jus Ra also featured on many albums and mixtapes on the local Flint & Detroit hip hop scene. After opening up for platinum major recording artists such as Freeway, Rocko, Young Buck and Chamillionaire, he was invited to perform at the Get Seen Get Signed music conference that was held in Chicago.
As of late Jus Ra has released his highly praised mixtape Hope & Despair along side his debut album entitled Not Without Doubts. The album is being distributed through ReverbNation.com and is currently on sale on retail sites such as Itunes.com, Napster.com and Amazon.com.
Jus Ra is currently hard at work on his next mixtape Infamous. The project will feature production from all over the country including some high profile names such as Prolyfic and B. Corder. The tape also promises to offer the same lyrical intensity and attention to the craft Jus Ra has come to be known for throughout his career.
