Famously recognized as a "freestyle battle" champion, Joshua Gunn, aka J.Gunn, has been a fixture in the Hip-Hop scene since he was 11 years old. At 15, he released his album "Perfection Xperiment 2" which features production from Grammy Award-winning producers 9th Wonder and Nicolay. Gunn went on to release three critically acclaimed solo albums, embark on two world tours, and has performed in over a dozen international countries including Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Korea, Jamaica, and continues to sell out shows throughout the United States. He's shared stages and collaborated with Kanye West, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy and many others.  Gunn and fellow Durham natives G Yamazawa and Kane Smego would go on to release  "North Cack" which quickly became an anthem for his city, the theme song for the NFL's Carolina Panthers, The NBA's Charlotte Hornets, and National Champion University of North Carolina Tar Heels Basketball team, also bringing home "Best Music Video" award at the NYC Hip Hop Film Festival in 2018. In 2012, he partnered with In the Black Network founder James Dubose and hip-hop icon MC Lyte to create the album "Faithful Struggle" before branching off into television and film work as he launched his own company, Red Eye Lifestyle — through which, he released three more solo albums.  He continues to build his reputation as not only a talented emcee, but an entrepreneur.
