J.R. Wild was born on September 22nd, 1994 in Forest Lake, MN. He attained the ability to create music at an early age, and has always had the ability to express his feeling through his work. At the age of 15, J.R. began rapping with his high school friends Jon Reed and Zach Hecimovich. Together they formed an amateur Hip-Hop collective entitled, "Pandorous", creatively writing music over YouTube beats and having occasional backyard performances, though never reaching any true success.
At a local music event in 2013 called, "Local Love 2013", J.R. was introduced to Jackson Weyrauch of City of the Weak by their mutual friend Clayton Stickel.
Weyrauch showed J.R. a few beats and instrumentals that were a work in progress by who would later be known as HollowOwl. J.R. immediately wanted to work with Jackson and set up a date in which to do so. They quickly created a Future Hip-Hop Music Duo and called themselves, "Armag3ddon", a subliminally polictical group focused on awakening the general public to their hostile surroundings. On January 1st, 2015, J.R. publicly announced his signing with HollowOwl Productions, founded by Jackson Weyrauch and closely connected with Aric Okerman(Apparition), another exceptional local DJ. J.R. dropped his label debut album "The Universes" on Friday, July 31st, 2015.
