JNaturaL is a Filipino American born emcee/vocalist with a presence and vocal power that has coined the term which many have used to describe her “looking pretty, spitting ugly”. This “sexy tomboy firecracker” emerged on the indie hip hop scene in early 2000 as the only female emcee in an 8 piece band.
In 2002 JNaturaL released her first solo LP For Clarity, and in 2004, continuing to find her own voice, JNat wrote and produced a 5 track acoustic guitar EP called LA Virgen.
In 2006, JNaturaL teamed up with producer/photographer Jeff Wonder to produce her first globally distributed LP, Escape From Babylon. Watch her music video for the single “Dust For Los Angeles” off of this LP
In 2007 fate crossed her path with long time hip hop mentor Aceyalone, who brought her to the Project Blowed Studios to be a part of the Blowed’s all female wrecking crew The (SIS)tem.
In 2008 JNat released her Sex Lies and Sextape mixtape, mixed by DJ Ray Ray Raw and featuring The A-Team (Aceyalone & Abstract Rude.) This mixtape was the catalyst for the independently run European tours that went down in 2008 and 2009. After recording all of 2009 for her new concept album Love is on Hiatus, executively produced by Aceyalone, with production by Jeff Wonder and LD of Technicali JNatural is poised to have a busy 2010 touring the States & Europe in support of the upcoming lp..
