Music careerEdit

In 1991, JT founded the independent record label Get Low Recordz.[1][3] What started as a basement enterprise and a one-man operation, would later become one of the most successful independent labels in the country.[4]

JT's rap debut came in 1992 with the self-released album Don't Stop til We Major at the age of 18. The next year he followed it up with Playaz N the Game.[4] The album's first single, "Game Recognize Game" received significant airplay, thrusting JT into the spotlight. The success of his album led to a bidding war among record labels, and he eventually signed with Priority Records in 1995.[1][4][5] Subsequent albums released through Priority Records were unsuccessful, however, and in 1996 the label elected to release JT from his contract.[4]

After the dissolution of his contract with Priority Records, JT went back to self-distributing his albums through Get Low Recordz. With the money from his deal with Priority, JT invested in a new state of the art recording studio and began rapidly producing and releasing numerous albums. In 2000, after signing a modest distribution deal with Bayside Records, Get Low began expanding, releasing nearly 20 albums a year.[4]

In 2002, JT published an E-Book called The CEO Manual.[6]

JT is credited with discovering rapper The Game, and releasing his first two albums Untold Story and QB 2 Compton before The Game signed with Dr. Dre and debuted as a member of the Aftermath Entertainment camp.[7]

In fall of 2005, JT was named A&R for the West Coast operations of the Houston, Texas-based Rap-A-Lot Records.[8]

JT the Bigga Figga's film credits include the Spike Lee movie Sucker Free City (2004),[9][10] and SKUZZ TV (2007),[11] a reality based documentary DVD released by 3MZ productions.

In 2006, JT worked with Snoop Dogg on a documentary DVD entitled Mandatory Business, which featured such names as Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Xzibit, Young Buck and 50 Cent.[12]

As of 2015, JT founded the Netflix-like on-demand service Trapflix, which showcases urban films, documentaries, concert footage, and music. JT has heavily been involved in filming and directing, releasing over 40 films and documentaries since 2000. JT is now spreading his independent knowledge and the concept of Pan-Africanism in Burkina Faso, and posts daily on his YouTube channel, Trapflix TV. He founded the label “Fillmoelanta". He is also one of the most recognized marketing/promotion talents in hip-hop and has served many high-profile clients such as Rich Gang, G-Unit, Snoop Dogg, and many more. He has also released a series of collaboration tapes with Gucci Mane.
