Growing up in the mean streets of Detroit, J-Murk is a product of a culture in which survival depends upon respect to ones name sake. J left home as a teenager and took to a deadly underground world in Detroit. It was a constant grind trying to eat, stay warm, and find a safe heaven to lay his head. It would be two of his brothers Willie DeVon and Barry Moore "R.I.H. Brother", who introduced him to the art form known as Hip-Hop. Murk had a natural talent for Emceeing, and embraced Rap as his new past time. Murk would form the SEPARATORS with his brothers, and due to his experiences in the underground knew it would provide a venue to help Save Every Possible Soul. S.E.P.S. 4 LIFE!
