Born in Youngstown, Ohio, Jon "Throwback" Tepper grew up listening to rock and hip-hop. His love for music continued to grow throughout the years. It was only a matter of time until he earned the name "Throwback" from his massive collection of throwback jerseys. Soon after, Throwback began writing music and performing at local events. At first, the music was just a past time for Throwback until he was in two life-threatening car accidents within the span of two months. After these occurrences, Throwback decided to follow his dreams and take music seriously, seeing as how life can be taken away at the blink of an eye. After putting out his debut album, "Ballin' Since Birth," in December 2007, Throwback started to generate quite a buzz. This buzz lead to his first record deal with Affluent Records (New York, NY) at only the age of 18. Affluent Records re-released a new copy of "Ballin' Since Birth," on November 4, 2008. Unfortunately for Throwback, Affluent didn't live up to their expectations, which resulted in the album not being distributed properly. Other issues arose leading to a fallout with the label.
Fortunately for Throwback, he didn't let this discourage him. Throwback kept working hard alongside of his publicist and managerial team to score a mixtape with YoRaps/Block Starz Music. Throwback's mixtape, "What's High," hosted by DJ DEEZ is now available. It is available for FREE DOWNLOAD on BlockStarzMusic.com & DatPiff.com. The mixtape scored Throwback a feature in "High Times Magazine."
Throwback, now 22-years-old, has worked with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Sadat X, and more. Throwback has shared the stage with many admirable musicians, which include: Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Dorrough, Machine Gun Kelly, DJ Unk, Warren G, Joell Ortiz, Devin The Dude & more. He is currently working on expanding his own brand, Throwback Entertainment. With an album, mixtape, and a Best New Artist Nomination in the 2008 Ohio Hip-Hop Awards now under his belt, Throwback is a free agent and ready to see what the music industry throws him next.
