JohnBorn is one part rapper/singer and one part living, breathing visual art project. His live shows are unique–to say the least. Based in LA, he’s also a designer and artist, whose made appearances at Art Basel and graced numerous outlets, such as MTV, VH1, and BET; he’s also an amazingly gifted painter. His unique mosaic designs–on both canvas and clothing/cars–has been commissioned by celebrities like Nicki Minaj, Nick Cannon, Jamie Foxx, Odell Beckham, Keyshia Cole, Desean Jackson, Ne-Yo, Floyd Mayweather, Chris Brown, Nick Cannon, Rick Ross, John Wall, Ma$e, Future, The Game, Eric Bellinger, John Salley, Roshon Fegan, Andre Drummond, Marcellus Wiley, India Westbrooks, Sean Kingston, Siya and many others. If that wasn’t enough, he’s also wrapped up in fashion.

Back to this music–his debut album The First Supper dropped last year, and it’s just as unique and expressive as his visual artwork. He doesn’t confine his influences into any box–as you can imagine. Take a listen to some of his tracks below, and check out some of the other content I’m posting. He’s a name to put on your 2017 watch list!
