We had the good fortune of connecting with Tha J-Squad and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tha, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
We come from a family of Entrepreneurs. So it’s in the blood just like music. The need to be Financially Independent & control our destiny was definitely the drive to become business owners.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We are a brother team of Music Producers primarily known for creating Music for the dance style known as “Krump”. We started an Independent Record Label led by our Mother & Executive Producer (Tha J-Squad Beat Mastaz Productionz) where we released 21 our own mixtapes titled “J-Squad Krump Mixes”. We also started the first all Krump dancing event called “Krump Arena”. This enabled us to provide a positive outlet exclusively to Krump Dancers as well as distribute our music to the world. That eventually led to numerous placements in the Entertainment Industry such as “So You Think You Can Dance” , “Stomp The Yard”, “The Beyonce Experience Live Tour” & more. We currently have one of the largest Remix channels on youtube under the alias “Remix Maniacs”. The path was never easy. We faced adversity at every turn. From problems at the Event, to quarrels with group members. Persistence & vision helped us overcome those obstacles. We want the world to know that we’re more than just “Krump producers”. We’re multi-talented musicians looking to take over the music industry.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Our Mother & Executive Producer – Loretta aka Momma Smoove
