My name is Jordan Ramble and I’m from Trenton, NJ. I’m a Man of God, Dad, and an Artist; in that order lol.
I didn’t grow up in Christian home. I was raised by my dad, at a young age he took me from my mother. Til this day she tells me that my dad told her he was taking me to get pampers, and he just never came back.
I was blessed to be reconciled to her when I got saved, which was around 2014 and we are still building. My dad wasn’t into church, I know his family was, but he just kept me isolated from that life. He was born in Liberia and they were heavy in ministry but when he came to the states I guess he just did his own thing.
I had ZERO knowledge of Christ.
I mean, I had heard about him but I had no interest in getting to know him.
Senior year of high school I transferred schools twice and then I eventually dropped out and during that time period I was so depressed. My dad was always sending me motivational sermons and he would always say, “Son you could be whatever you want to be if you just put your mind to it.” It was around that time I got into Hip-Hop. I heard it tons of times but I just never got in to it. I was a huge Big Sean fan! And as crazy as it may sound, God used Big Sean to stir something up in me and I thought to myself, “I could rap too”, lol.
At that time, the talk about the illuminati and secret societies were heavy and I was one of those curious guys, I’d stay up and look in to it. My Dad was working crazy labor jobs so I rarely saw him but we were always on the phone and he would give me money to spend, so I was good. I remember one day he called me and said he had befriended this guy and the guy had some literature he wanted him to check out that would help him become successful, and sure enough
it was an invitation to a secret society.
My dad had no real interest in it but when he told me about it I pressed him to pursue and they sent a book to our home and I studied it!
From that moment I became an atheist. I truly believed that I was God. I kept it for a while before sharing it with anybody. It was my secret. Before I knew it my life was surrounded by darkness. I had a close friend I shared it with when I moved in with him and his mom, she kicked us both out! Before moving, the book just disappeared. After that, I couldn’t get ahead in life after going in circles a few times. I cried to God and begged him to show up in my life if he was real. I remember that night too. I was sitting in my 1987 Caprice box Chevy (it was so clean) I was crying out to God, smoking a cigarette and asking for forgiveness. At that time I was living with a girlfriend and her mom, my baby mama at the time, who’s my wife now, was in a shelter with my sons. I had just got my GED but I still felt empty. From that day I cried, God started proving His existence. I had no intentions on being a rapper for Jesus or anything like that. I just needed to know if he was real.
It was more so curiosity that compelled me to Christ and I know now that it was grace.
The best advice I would give to anyone that’s struggling is to seek God, not for things, not for position, or for what He can do for you. Seek Him to know Him for who He truly is and you will find Him. – Deuteronomy 4:29
Since I got saved, I’ve stayed saved and I don’t miss anything behind me. I wish I would have been saved in high school. The focus now is completely different lol but I thank God for the process. He’s constantly building, perfecting, and pushing me to be a better Man, Dad, and Artist!

Flying the flag for Coventry’s rap scene with a self-assured swagger, JAY1 had a meteoric rise after the single “Your Mrs” made its way to the 18th spot on the U.K. charts.
Originally rapping as Young Jay, JAY1 started making music seriously after moving from North London to the historically student-based city of Coventry in 2016. Bold, self-assured vocals and candid lyrics gave the U.K. MC a fundamental versatility: despite often letting his lyrics speak for themselves on minimalist trap beats, he demonstrated his ability to adapt to everything from drill to dancehall. After delivering freestyles on two popular U.K. video series, Bl@ckbox and Hardest Out, JAY1 saw his first major success with “That’s My Bae,” which blew up through online video channels before inspiring its own freestyle challenge.
A series of 2018 singles helped to boost the rapper’s fan base and expand his sound, leading to him trying his hand at summer dancehall on “Good Vibes” and blunt braggadocio on “Becky.” It wasn’t until “Your Mrs” that the Coventry MC found his breakout hit — after a snippet of its chorus received social media buzz, the song’s music video hit a million views on streaming services just three days after its release. Building on this success, he quickly landed a spot on the remix of Russ and Tion Wayne‘s “Keisha & Becky” and then appeared on Charlie Sloth‘s Fire in the Booth radio show in April 2019. His debut EP, One Wave, was released in July of the same year.
Joey Badass is the stage name of Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott, the American rapper, Hip-hop record artist and actor. He is one of the founding members of the Hip-hop collective, Pro Era. Joey is credited for dissolving the fine line between the old school Hip-hop and the contemporary rap. He made a name for himself in the hip-hop scenario by releasing his mixtape, ‘1999’. To date, he has a total of 19 singles, three mixtapes and an extended play (EP) to his credit. Some of his notable works are ‘Summer Knights’, ‘All-Amerikkkan Bada$$’, ‘1999’ and ‘Rejex’. Joey has a unique style which is raw and quirky. He loves experimenting with his lyrics which in turn helps him to come up with unique compositions. Joey always wanted to become an actor and he did exactly that by bagging a prominent role in the TV series ‘Mr. Robot’.
Joey was born Jo-Vaughn Virginie Scott on January 20, 1995 in East Flatbush, a neighbourhood in Brooklyn, New York City. His mother is from St. Lucia, Caribbean Island, while his father is a native of Jamaica. Joey became the first member from his family to be born in the United States of America.
Joey developed an interest towards literature and English language when he was young and started writing poetry and songs at the age of eleven. Since he always wanted to become an actor, he joined the Edward R. Murrow High School as the school had a reputation of encouraging budding actors. He took part in many school plays just to get noticed as an actor. Joey also did a major role in one of his school plays titled ‘John Cusack is Not a Famous Actor.’
By the time he turned 15, he was absolutely sure of making acting his profession. But destiny had other plans for him. When he saw a few rappers exhibiting their skills in his school, he walked up to them and asked if he could join them as he was intrigued by their artistry.
He soon found himself hanging around with a bunch of rappers. This shifted his focus from acting to music. However, acting was never out of his mind and he only thought that music could introduce him to the field of acting.
Capital Steez, one of the members of their group, gave the idea of forming a rap collective. Together they formed a rap group and named it ‘Pro Era’ which is a short form of ‘Professional Era’. Joey became the co-founder of the collective, along with another rapper, Powers Pleasant.
He started rapping under the pseudonym JayOhVee but later changed it to his current stage name. ‘Pro Era’ soon made a video that displayed the group’s rapping skills and posted it on YouTube. In no time the video was all over the internet and it eventually caught the attention of Jonny Shipes, the founder of Cinematic Music Group.
Jonny then approached Joey and asked him to compose raps and songs that he wanted to release under his label. Joey agreed to his proposal but requested him to sign all his fellow ‘Pro Era’ members. Jonny agreed to it and the rest is history.
Joey also started lending his ears to a lot of contemporary rap artists and incorporated some of their techniques into his music. Jonny Shipes is now Joey’s manager
Joey first collaborated with Capital Steez, the founder of ‘Pro Era’, in 2012 and released a song video titled ‘Survival Tactics’ on their official YouTube Channel. Produced by Cinematic Music Group, the tape was recorded at Relentless Records and was distributed by RED Distribution. ‘Survival Tactics’ was partly inspired by ‘2000 Fold’, the first studio album of the Hip-hop collective, ‘Styles of Beyond’.
In July 2012, Joey made his debut as an independent artist by coming up with the mixtape, ‘1999’. The tape instantly became popular and was soon featured in the list of ‘top 40 albums of the year’ by Complex magazine.
Joey released another mixtape in which the remaining tracks of the album were included. It was titled as ‘Rejex’ and was released on September 6, 2012. One of the reasons behind his instant success was that he experimented with his music and also fused many genres of music. Although it was a dicey thing to do, it turned out to be a recipe for good music.
In 2013, Joey’s career scaled greater heights when he released his second mixtape, ‘Summer Knights’. ‘Unorthodox’, a single from the tape, which was released earlier that year, was already a hit.
‘Summer Knights’ was first intended to be released as an extended play, but for some reason, it was released as a mixtape. Joey did release the EP version on October 29, 2013. The EP was at the 48th position on the ‘Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart of US Billboard’. Joey secured his first nomination in 2013 under the category, ‘Best New Artist’ at BET Awards.
Joey’s dream of being an actor materialized in 2014 when he was cast in a short film titled ‘No Regrets’. The story of the film was loosely based on his real life. In August, he released the first track from his next album, ‘Big Dusty’.
The full-length studio album was released on 12 August 2014. In the beginning of the year 2015, he gave a live performance in the famous talk show, ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’. He then went on to share the stage with some eminent Hip-hop artists like BJ The Chicago Kid, The Roots and Statik Selektah.
He released his next album ‘B4.DA.$$’ on January 20, 2017, which also marked his 20th birthday. The title of the album is the representation of the phrase, ‘Before the Money’. Joey made his debut television appearance with the thriller series, ‘Mr. Robot’. He played the role of Leon, the best friend of the lead character.
Joey had to turn down the offer to play Barack Obama in a biography because of this series. Joey then released the single ‘Devastated’ on March 4, 2016, which was the first release from his then upcoming album, ‘All-Amerikkkan Bada$$’.
The song grabbed the 25th position on the ‘Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles’ chart. The single was certified as a gold copy by the RIAA as it made record-breaking sales.
On January 20, 2017, he released the second single ‘Land of the Free’ from the album and finally on April 7, 2017, the album hit the shelves.
A month later, Joey’s representatives announced the concert tour, ‘Everybody’s Tour’. During the tour, he was accompanied by rap and Hip-hop artists like Logic and Big Lenbo.
Capital Steez, the founder of ‘Pro Era’, committed suicide on December 24, 2012. The investigation reports suggested it to be a case of murder. The report also suggested that Joey could be involved in the murder.
Another controversy involving Joey cropped up when he broke the nose of a security guard during Falls Festival in Byron Bay, Australia. The incident took place in the year 2015.
