Jeaneaux Xavier Cleavant Rigters enjoyed writing listening to music and poems as a student playing with words, and as time went by he began writing lyrics inspired by self experiences and street life in his native where he grew up. At the age of 7 he played  violin. Back in the day when we still had a cassettedeck.He used to record his raps on cassettes that he took from his Big Brother and with his Niece he did radioshows that were also recorded on the cassettes and the radio show was called juice. .When he was 11 Years he borrowed a 2pac cd from his older cousin . After listening to this work of art and the way 2pac expresses himself threw music with a message

J Encore encountered music at a very young age, due to his family.His Grand Father was a Lead Singer.J Encore also began crafting his rapping skills at an early age: J Encore claims to have written his first verse when he was 11 years old, to the beat of 2Pac i wonder if heaven got a ghetto”: “I was like, I can do this; I’ll try it out. From that moment I’ve had a very keen interest in the whole craft. Being a big fan of words and making the real connection with them. Saying things that can make your minds eye open up. I can say something and I can turn heads.” Freestyling everywhere he could continued on as a hobby for J Encore , “I  wanted to be magnificent with my raps  I was growing a passion for it.


After his first single “Give it a try ” J Encore (CEO OF By.Any.Means.Necessary Entertainment B.A.M.N Entertainment)is back with his new single “One life to live”. Taken from the new album “The Ballet or the bullet” the song “one life 2 live” is pretty self explanatory it speaks about having one life to live, living it to the fullest,taking the right opportunities and choices and striving through the ups and downs to remain successful in life.

With his tour dates for the album “Let it be Known” still to come, he is busy on tour with one of his co-signs from the label BAMN.ENT. They will be available tour dates above where you can find members of B.A.M.N.ENT.
