Episode 033 - J-Nibb
J-NiBB’s outlook on life has always been unique, but simple: "If you want something badly enough, then either go get it, or find a way to make it happen!". He has never recognized "I can't." His participation in sports brought him recognition for both his leadership and motivational skills. In his senior year, it seemed that his football dream was about to become a reality. That fragile dream was brought to an abrupt end through shifted discs in his spine (which pinched his sciatic nerve) and then, a broken arm. The most important football season of his entire high school career would be spent on the bench. Hip Hop was introduced to J-NiBB by his older brother (who didn't want his old CD's, anymore). In this case, one man's "trash" certainly turned out to be another's "treasure." The first song he remembers hearing was "Move, B***H," by Ludacris. Immediately, he loved the beat and flow that Luda produced. A few years later "the name" J-NiBB was born. At the age of 19, it began to be part of a serious lifestyle when J-NiBB released his first CD, entitled "The Warm-Up." Its success gave him the opportunity to sign a distribution deal with a branch of Universal Records, as well as performing alongside hip-hop icons such as Big Sean, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Dizzy Wright, Twista, Souls of Mischief, Nappy Roots, Wu-Tang, King Chip (Chip Tha Ripper), and Project Pat. He also hit the Top 10 on major radio stations in Mississippi, as well as headlining the Mississippi College Tour. In 2014, J-NiBB released his second CD "Sleepless Nights & Early Mornings," which landed him in the XXL Magazine, and took him to Hollywood. With successes mounting, J-NiBB's personal life (his desires and inclinations) began to have undue influence. The funny thing is that from the beginning, he was frequently told that the music that he was producing should be music focused on God. With no ear to hear that, He would take a "back seat" until His Plan for J-NiBB's life was fully executed. As God began His move on J-NiBB "in earnest," attaining success appeared to be becoming more difficult. Not only that, but the back injury became worse - and he was almost unable to walk for two weeks. About a week before he was "put on his back," he received a prayer cloth from Transformed Life Church (where he attends and is pastored by Brian T. Hamilton). The pain was so great that he decided to use the cloth. While doing so, he noticed a small "s
