Ghetto MC, government name James Johnson, is from Staten Island, NY and resides in Paterson, NJ. Born on Valentine’s Day, his love for Hip-Hop formed growing up in the same neighborhood as Wu-Tang Clan, Shyiem, King Just, and more. Encouraged by a middle school teacher to put his artful, thought-filled poems to music, Ghetto began rhyming early on in the WondaGh3ddon/Tre Pound clique and released his first mixtape, Direct Approach.
