She's Paving New Lanes & Breaking Barriers for Independent Females! She is arguably one of the most lyrically complex and creative unsigned female rappers in the current hip-hop industry. One encounter with J. Irja The Sexy Psycho and you’ll never forget her 5’0” dynamite frame that dons a striking head tattoo and boasts a powerhouse of rapid-fire, catchy lyrics and explosive stage presence. Her fans liken her to a “white girl Tech N9ne” and “female Eminem.” Platinum Producer DJ Pain 1 co-signs her performance by stating “J. Irja shuts down the stage - every time.”
Her performance and music are both captivating, but perhaps the most intriguing thing about J. Irja is her music is all inspired but her real life. In her own words “EVERYTHING I rap is real, I’ve either been through it or seen it. I don't do fake, I don’t do ‘Wishlist Rapping’”
The pain in her music comes from a lifetime of struggling, of turning nothing into something. She grew up in Canada in a poverty-stricken 7 person home and turned to small side hustles to help put food on the table. A major head injury in 5th grade caused major set-backs both mentally and socially for her, and she became an outcast. She shaved her head and joined the wrestling team, and after her parents disapproval, she went on to cheerleading. It was obvious that she was torn within between her masculine and feminine sides and she turned to her one true love for solace: Music.
She became a published Poet young, and graduated early vowing to never struggle as she did growing up, so she turned to selling drugs and exotic dancing to funnel money into her music career. She fell into tragedy as she obtained another severe head injury and began an intimate and tumultuous relationship with an abusive manager who extorted her and preyed upon her one true goal: to make it in the music business.
But J. Irja didn’t give up! She pushed forward to Release a Star Studded Debut album ‘The Sexy Psycho EP vol 1’ on Jan 31 2019 featuring Platinum artists Paul Wall, Lil Flip, Bubba Sparxx, Bizarre of D12 & Strange Music labelmates Stevie Stone and JL B. Hood.
Once Again Pushing the Boundaries of Stereotypical Rap, for the First time in History she has put Nothing but Strange Music Artists (Godemis, Wrekonize & Joey Cool) over Nothing But Majik Ninja Beats by Stir Crazy! Her Project #3SM (Sexy Psycho Strange Majik) is making noise & solidifying her as the Queen Of The Underground, The Underdog who will Never Back Down Without Fight! Her new project "The Sexy Psycho EP Vol 2" on the Other hand is Truly a game changer including a Legendary TWISTA, Gorilla Zoe, RITTZ, Lil Wyte, Caskey & More!!
In addition to her mindblowing talent & resume, J. Irja also is sincerely a humanitarian focused on making a positive impact and giving back! She speaks out against Domestic Violence and shares her story in her Single & Music Video 'SURVIVOR' to motivate and uplift others who have been through the struggle. Her Video "WORK" ft Lil Wyte addresses Bullying & encourages victims to Rise Above! In addition, She started a conglomerate in honor of her daughter called the “Female Empowerment Movement Militia” a non-profit foundation that is comprised of women of all walks of life coming together to uplift and motivate one another to succeed and to demolish the roadblocks of sexual inequality once and for all and she is on her way to being part of making that happen.
