The entourage and support system of ThereGoJo

1 In Music: Who supports you?ThereGoJo

TGJ: And as of my supporters, my family and friends sure but I try not to think about who supports and who doesn’t. My focus is spreading my music as far as possible making more fans. Strangers have kinda always been my biggest supporters in reality not just on apps or I conversations. I’ve had someone cry from seeing me doing a show at a small venue but the amount of love and respect I received from the 20+ people was what sealed the deal and put things in perspective for me.

1 In Music: When did you realise you were going to make music professionally?

TGJ: At High School graduation. I was 18 and had been freestyling with the homies Mytch, Don and Tylor At Crown Point Parties since we were 16.
