J.D. Walker is a pioneer of underground/independent hip-hop and his vocal style of rap is like no other. His credibility in the streets of Chicago’s westside (and city as a whole) is possibly the broadest of all. While perhaps not a national name, everyone from street hustlers to artists to Don “Magic” Juan know his name and influence throughout Chicago’s hip-hop scene. Crucial Conflict (which includes J.D.’s cousin Cold Hard) and Lupe Fiasco are two notable artists who’ve cited him as an influence
J.D. has shared the stage with some of hip-hop’s biggest acts, including OutKast, Wu-Tang Clan, Too $hort, Luke Skyywalker and Scarface. He continues to record and perform to this day while running Bogis Bangin Records.
