Born and raised in Uptown Washington D.C. I've wanted to be a rapper since the age of 13. I started taking my career seriously during Nov 2012. I can't really say who influenced me but rap is my passion and I live to do this. I'm currently a senior at UDC and I'm majoring in Business.

When Love Goes Wrong: J-Zone's Top 25 Anti-Valentine's Day Rap Songs (With Audio) @JZoneDontTweet


When Love Goes Wrong: J-Zone's Top 25 Anti-Valentine's Day Rap Songs (With Audio)

Ah! Preparing for Valentine's Day, are we? Well, while you're making those reservations, you need to check this out. I dug deep into my large music collection and compiled a list of 25 rap songs that completely ruin the spirit of Valentine's Day (with audio for each one)! Yes! The songs get pretty rude and crude at points, but I did this solely to be contrary and it was a whole lot of fun! Cupid got his ass kicked in the process.

Check out the songs / the list here on Ego Trip and see / hear what happens when love goes completely wrong!

Audio: Sivion - "Butterfly Sessions: Remixed by Freddie Bruno"

Courtesy Illect.

"When I first thought about remixing Butterfly Sessions, I really wanted it to be unique and nothing like the original project. Freddie Bruno had been exploring some new production styles/techniques with different equipment and sounds. What I had heard from him at the time was so full of growth and life, musically, that I had to see if he'd do it. So I asked him and he was down, immediately. That's what family is about....helping each other grow. Man...what followed was amazing batch of remixes that I'm so excited to share with the world." - Sivion
