J Aktive is a rising independent artist who is known for his unique style of music and ability to produce his own tracks.
His journey in the music industry began at a young age when he was introduced to music through his family. His mother would make him and his sisters sing in front of the church every Sunday, and his older brothers were full-time rappers who inspired him to pursue music as a career.
In the third grade, J Aktive learned how to play the saxophone, which taught him how to read and write music. By the time he was a preteen, he recorded his first song and continued to make music throughout his teenage years. At the age of 22, he moved to Downtown Los Angeles and created Aktivate Productions, where he directed and edited music videos for other artists to make a living.
Making a name for himself

Despite not having a record label backing him up, J Aktive’s debut album reached over 3 million streams across all streaming platforms. He executively produced all of his own music, came up with the topics, selected the beats, and worked closely with his engineer to fine-tune and enhance every aspect of the song to execute his original vision.
J Aktive’s independence in the music industry has allowed him to experiment with different styles of music and sounds without being confined to a label’s expectations.
