Jus k a.k.a. Soul Wondaful, is from Vandeveer Houses Brooklyn, NY. It is time for people to hear his story, his life and his struggle. Sometimes it’s hard for him to be him, but everything in life is a lesson, an experience. At one time he was feeling cursed for everything wrongfully committed by his Pops. Just being homeless had him destined to give up, and end it all, but, he fought it, because he is a fighter and a survivor, ending it would have been the easy way out. A master in the art of story telling is not Jus k. He is the story! His story will be experienced in his lyrics, if you get past his production. He is the proud son of Ms. Shirley Smith in BK, NY. Hustlin from the young age of 16 has given him the experience to open for talented acts known as, Olivia, Allure, and Jimmy Cozier during 2001 in NYC. During a (3) year period of honing his skill, developing as a product, and relocating, Jus k continued achieving opening act opportunities for Jagged Edge, Urban Mystic, T.I at The Cricket Arena (15,000 capacity), Rich Boy, and Blast from The Past at The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre for Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, Dana Dane, Kurtis Blow, Yo-Yo, up and t the after party for Keisha Cole’s Double Up Tour. Much more than only a singer, Jus k aka Soul Wondaful is using his voice towards Motivational, Gang Prevention, Domestic Abuse, up and to speaking for the Empowerment of Women for various organizations. His most recent accomplishments for 2008 include the New Face for Rocawear’s “I will not lose” Campaign, Winner of BET 106TH & Park WILD OUT WEDNESDAYS R&B Singer and winner of the New York’s own Blaze the Stage. In addition, various press/media coverage in Vibe, Charlottes Observer, Post, Weekly, and Charlottes Fox News to name a few. Jus k has produced various original songs used by some of today’s established artists. With the hit single “Special” and his follow up release of “So in Luv”, Jus has to prepare himself for al that is sure to follow with the exceptional buzz received. The demand of his live performance is greatly supported by Power 98 WPEG/Charlotte, Power 95.5 WPWZ/Rocky Mt, The Big Station WKXN/WKXKFM/ Alabama, and Foxy 99 WZFX/Fayetteville, NC just to name a few. Citing, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, David Ruffin, Mint Condition, and Bobby Brown on his list of favorite entertainers, Jus k’s style invokes a nostalgic feeling, a throwback to the voices surrounding a garbage can set a fire on a cold winter day. A style, he confesses, as raw hip-hop soul, voice of the ghetto, Raw & B. As Jus would say, “just gimmie a beat man!” Jus k a.k.a. Soul Wondaful will take the music industry in the earned way of his opening act ability, SECOND TO NONE, as he graces and challenges music with his “Triple Threat” ability, and powerful show stealing live performance.
