There must be something in the water in Ohio because they have some of the hottest MC’s to bless a mic! Get to know this Dope Female Emcee who goes by the name J. Jig Cicero!
Jig is by far new to the music scene. As a child she was influenced by older cousins all of whom were raised in the church, hence she sang in multiple choirs as early as six years old. Jig would go on to do cover performances in school talent shows of Timberland, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah. It wasn’t long after that she set her sights on becoming a major as well as, “a lyrical blessing” to the game. She wrote her first piece at age 11, a song and performance that won her a prize of $250. A composition she calls, “a good first attempt at best”. With her winnings she went out and purchased all the Missy Elliot music and merchandise she could afford! Such a grand prize was enough to further motivate her to do more talent shows and write more music. Little did she know she would soon be taking request and performing before the mayor of Dayton, Ohio, Rhine McLin. In her young career, Jig was requested to perform at weddings, funerals, townships, and an array of showcases. She has brought adult men to tears with her confident delivery and meaningful content.
Jig would battle other artist in school for odd dollars and loose change in the cafeteria. Soon she then was forced to end her cafeteria and hallway recitals when the faculty realized there was constant commotion and late attendance to class from other students. In later years Jig would align with teams of people who would further shape her musical prowess, the now disbanded Writers Inc of Dayton and 3MG of Cleveland, Ohio. In an effort to revive her musical career she has joined independent label Blue Blood Entertainment of which she has stake as partner as well.
As of May 15, 2014 Jig’s 1st official studio album was finished. Blue Blood has decided to announce an album street date for 1-11-2015. The album is titled The Resurrection and will print hard copies as well as distribute digitally. Jig is currently working on a promotional mixtape album that will be available free of charge for download thru various areas.
