Overview: J Grigdes grew up the middle child in a bi-racial family of three boys in Indianapolis, IN. As a young man he was influenced by his Father playing the piano & guitar, along with his Mother singing songs in Church. His passion for music was first realized at the age of thirteen when he was given a set of turntables as a Christmas gift. Inspired by the film "Juice" (starring Tupac Shakur) J Grigdes took on the stage name DJ Juice and began deejaying in his basement. Since most 12" vinyl records came with an instrumental on the B-side, J Grigdes began experimenting with his own rhymes over other artists’ beats while deejaying parties. It was then that he found his voice and decided to come from behind the turntables and pick up the microphone.
Before leaving Indianapolis, J Grigdes had his own radio show on 89.3 fm WJEL for two years (from 2002-2004). His interest in music and deejaying led him to pursue radio in Chicago, IL where he attended Columbia College and graduated with a degree in Radio Broa Artist Site
