We were excited to hear, about a year ago, that one of our favorite emcee's were coming out with new music. AHMAD, known for his classic hip hop single "Back In The Day", saw platinum success at the age of 17 in 1993. AHMAD also teamed up with West Coast favorites Saafir and Ras Kass to do the song "Come Widdit" for Street Fighter's motion picture soundtrack. After touring the world on the success of the single and earning his stripes as a respected emcee with a classic hip hop song, AHMAD abruptly quit music. AHMAD was finding that he was not fulfilled by the fame, money, and touring and he gave his life to the Lord. A few years later AHMAD started the band that many grew to know and love by the name of 4th Avenue Jones. 4th Ave released music on Interscope as well as Gotee. After a strong effort but less of a pay off, the band went on an indefinite hiatus, and AHMAD returned to college.

The mission of J'son's "City Lights" is three fold. First, this CD is given to encourage the believer, no matter where they live, to be a light to their city. Secondly, it's telling the person that doesn't know Christ, that the reason life is so dark in the city, the hood, and the block, is because of the absence of the light of Christ. And lastly, the reality is, a time will come when Christ will return, and we won't have to fight to be lights anymore... He will be the light.
