1. What motivated you at first to become an artist?
-I was 15 my friend Geoff and I were in my computer room and we decided to write a rap song, and I promised him that I would never give up on becoming an artist, He was my best friend and when I told him I meant something he knew I was really serious about it
2. How did you come up with your nickname?
-I liked how Tupac used his real name, So I would use mine, Adam Jacob or Adam J Solo
3. Which is your biggest ( musical) source of inspiration?
-My biggest source of influence would have to be, The Beatles and Tupac 2 of my favorite artists/bands ever
4. Old school or new school hip hop?
-Good question. I prefer anything that is somewhat truth or fun to listen to so a little bit of both is a good dose for me, tho I can not really listen to that stuff that just doesn’t make any sense unless I like the beat and tune out the stupidity
5. Define yourself as an artist within a few words?
-A Clean Up Artist, because I believe that if given the chance I can really clean up the game,the world and overall bring something clean,fun and exciting to the table
6. According to you, what makes you stand out of the crowd?
-The fact that I am not in this to be a rapper or an entertainer. I am in it because I feel that its time for a good role model with some words that people all over can relate to.
7. For how long have you been rapping now? What are your biggest achievements as an artist?
-About 7 years, I only count 1 year tho because the last year I have started to try and master my craft and take it seriously. My biggest achievement so far has been to be able to gain the attention of major producers with my story and music, I haven’t gotten the chance to really go out there yet, I have been so busy with bills and life its been kinda hard hoping for a big break soon
8. Which artists have you been collaborating with?
-Hazardas-Donald Bandy from North Carolina, but other than that I am a Solo act, but he is a young 17 year old actor who has been in many tv shows and commercials
9. Besides hip hop, what kind of music do you listen to?
-Believe it or not recently I have really started to listen to classical music, I also like classical rock.
10. What is the message behind your lyrics?
-good question you got me thinking how to best answer this haha umm Its time for us as a culture to rise to the occasion and its been hard for us to, whether it was broken homes, drugs infesting our streets, anger and hate as well, its time to be happy for the things you have and its time to really act better and be more aware of how our actions effect not only us personally but us as a culture.

Adam JSolo is a hip hop artist.He was born on October the 29th, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
How he got there is a very long story, because he was diagnosed with a major learning disability at a very early age. He was put on heavy medication and the doctors nearly gave up on him. He was singled out and had to go to private schools.
Despite the doctors’ diagnosis that really spoke against Adam’s capabilities, the young boy had an incredible memory:” I was always really intelligent so I was told I would memorize all the numbers on the refrigerator at the age of 2″ (Adam)
Adam’s mom would test altenative medicines and natural treatments for her son in order to improve his health.But in front of Adam’s difficulties, his father deserted his home.
Adam then went to a military school where making friends was a lot easier for him.During his teenage years, Adam got into trouble, getting involved with drugs. His life eventually took a more positive tuen when he met his girlfriend and future wife Gina who allowed him to change the way he envisioned life.Adam experienced the funny side of life with Gina, his best friend and hers fell in love and ended up having a kid. But at the same time, life didn’t spare him: he lost two close friends within six months.Adam eventually chose to become an emcee and to teach people about the power of a positive attitude. His motivation to succeed despite all will bring him further, because as Eminem said it in Lose Yourself before ” you can do anything you set your mind to, man”.
Adam’s story teaches anybody an invaluable life lesson: even if anybody is giving up on you, you gotta find the force and the courage within yourself. If you fight hard enough, you will be exactly where you wanna be.
