Who is J.Kwest? J.Kwest is an emcee; an Emmy-Award winning performer; a writer and contributor to the Huffington Post, and a pastor: truly one of the good guys in Chicago hip hop. He’s also 1/2 of the group Verbal Kwest, and makes dope, refreshing music that is both inspiring and challenging…and fun. J has been featured in Rolling Out and N’Digo magazines; on Dr. Maya Angelou’s Oprah & Friends radio station and at the Children’s Defense Fund; Urban Ministries International has named him “Living Black History.” It’s time you met him.
Moving beyond naming things as the reason we are blessed, I WOKE UP is about celebrating life and being able to start every day with God’s grace in our first thought and our first breath. NO MATTER WHAT happens, today is beautiful because I WOKE UP. The remix is a metaphor-rich cipher between 3 dope emcees (Armond Wakeup and Taelor Gray join him), looking back on life and remembering to be grateful again.
Perseverance is back in style. Enough lemons. As the scratch says, “LEMONADE was a popular drink, and it still is…”
