Darwin born and bred, J-Milla is now based in Adelaide

TikTok sensation J-MILLA entered the music landscape with Unlock the System a potent political track that was embraced immediately by the community and the Indigenous media landscape. Energetic hype track FRESH lightened up the mood just as the music industry fell to its knees due to COVID and now he brings us something a little bit different to what we expected – a taste of the J-MILLA drill rap. Prior to J-MILLA’s official ‘bounce’ onto the music scene the 22 year old rapper was already making waves in the social media realm. His Tik Tok account has 146k followers with posts boasting 50k to 3.5M+ views, 17.6k followers on Insta, 20k on FB and the music video for his 2018 track ‘My People’ recently passed 100k on YouTube. On top of that J-MILLA’s collaboration with Australian electronic artist M4SONIC on the track ‘Matchstick’ which has over 300k streams on Spotify; Not bad for an artist who’s barely a blimp on the mainstream music radar.

“J-Milla makes music with purpose, sharing tracks that tackle issues like racial discrimination, Indigenous incarceration and police violence. The Marranunggu man – who grew up in the Northern Territory and is now based between Darwin and Adelaide – first turned heads with the powerful debut single My People back in 2018. Since then, he’s been backed by fellow Adelaide MC Jimblah, released the bouncy 2011 single thang4me and this year snagged a crossover collaboration with Xavier Rudd. We see big things ahead.”
