Hi,my name is Jawz john Essa, and Im 21 and from Detroit,Michican but i currently live in Los Angeles. My father died 3 weeks before i was born from pantreatic Cancer. I have no brothers or sisters. I grew up living a very hard life. At age 15 i was shot 3 times by lapd Officers because i was defending my mother and they shot me 3 times with 9mm hollow points. I died that night but i was given a second chance. I had 9 surgeries and i was in citical care for 3 months.The police lied and said i went toward them with a knife. So they gave me 3 attempted murders on police officers and i went to jail and then prison. I got out when i was 18 and everything i went threw made me a stronger person. I never thought i could or would get threw this.When in jail, all i had was a pencil and paper so i found my gift in writing poetry which i now changed into my raps. I put my story,life events,and true stories in my rap. I rap for the people that can understand or relate to what i went threw. Rapping and writing is all I know what 2 do. Check out my videos and music and i wont waste this second chance. IF u have any questions you can contact me at www.youtube.com/jawzessa, or www.facebook.com/jawzjohnessa. Thank you for your time and hope you enjoy my music.
