J.Kwest is an emcee; an Emmy-Award winning performer; a writer and contributor to the Huffington Post, and a pastor: truly one of the good guys in Chicago hip hop. He’s also 1/2 of the group Verbal Kwest, and makes dope, refreshing music that is both inspiring and challenging … and fun.

J has been featured in Rolling Out and N’Digo magazines; on Dr. Maya Angelou’s Oprah & Friends radio station and at the Children’s Defense Fund; Urban Ministries International has named him “Living Black History.” It’s time you met him.

His upcoming album, Lemonade, is a 50-minute, 13-song storyboard about staying focused, and distractions; staying positive, and disappointments, and J’s imagination of how to respond when life gives you lemons … it is soulful, painful, funny, and — like any lemonade should be — refreshing.
