Bio

22- year old J-MILLA is a proud member of the Mak Mak Marranungu people, who are the traditional landowners of the Litchfield National Park in the NT. Born in Darwin J-MILLAs life started hard from the get-go; yet he managed to find a way to stand outside the intergenerational trauma pathway that affects so many Aboriginal families. Losing himself in music and storytelling was what got him through and it was this part of his culture that he clung to. When he noticed the power of narrative and its influence on those around him; mainly his brothers and sister - J-MILLA’s passion for writing lyrics and telling his own stories began. J-MILLA used this passion like a weapon to maintain a healthy mental state for himself and his sibling. His lyrical content swings between deep societal commentary and bangin’ club vibes.

His combined social media figures sit at 200k followers, a collab with M4SONIC titled ‘Matchstick’ has 400k streams on Spotify but it was the track ‘Unlock the System’ about the murder of Kumanjayi Walker by police that brought him attention. Soon after he was deemed ‘Spotlight Artist’ by triple j Unearthed [twice], was handpicked for THE BIGSOUND50, played knock-out shows at Electric Storm and Darwin Festivals and has recently been nominated for “Best Aboriginal/TSI Artist” by the MusicSA Awards [SAMS].

That beat is simple enough but I tell you it really does the job. Sets the big, flossy vibe right from the jump and gives J the backdrop to deliver these loved up raps.

Ladies man J with a little braggadocio, a little pop hook and plenty of confidence.

the piano melody and gentle vocals might soften the production, but J-MILLA's uncompromising bars are as honest and gritty as ever.
