J-Kwon (born Jarrell Jones in March 28, 1986) is a rapper from St. Louis, currently signed to Jermaine Dupri's So So Def Recordings. He is currently wrapping up his second album, Louisville Slugger. 2004-2005: Musical Beginnings J-Kwon first got signed in a very odd and amusing way. He would continually mock who would be his main producer, Jermaine Dupri, who produced a majority of his first album, Hood Hop. Regardless, according to Dupri, J-Kwon was also signed because of his rapping skills. J-Kwon first rose to stardom with his single "Tipsy" and his 2004 album Hood hop. J-Kwon's debut peaked at #7 on the Billboard 200.
