Jimmy James Johnson, also known as “Tha Long Beach Delinquent”, was born and raised in Long Beach, California. Johnson is the oldest of three siblings who, it seemed, had bigger dreams than his mind could handle as a teen. From school fights,drugs, and gun cases to gang affiliation, his bad decisions landed him in prison as a teen. He was charged as an adult, being one of many whom fell victim to the infamous Bill Clinton 3 Strikes Law which is explained in LP Jimmy James Johnson..
Johnson also made history with a project on one of the most anticipated compilation projects, Snoop Dogg’s Beach City Vol. 1 #19, becoming a L.B.C MOVEMENT artist. But rewinding back toNovember 15th, 2004, mysterious altercations transpired at a Vibe Awards event that involved Billionaire CEO Dr. Dre getting knocked out and reunited G–Unit artist Young Buck stabbing Jimmy James Johnson. Now, after 10 years, a couple of diss tracks surfaced from the ocean of the LBC which caused 50 Cent to page Dr.Dre and make amends with Young Buck in order to make the competition equal. Other sources say they will need an army of Slim Shadys to match up to an artist like Jimmy James Johnson.
You can also hear more about the latest update on incidents involving Jimmy James Johnson, Young Buck and Dr. Dre in a recent 2019 Exclusive interview with Emacculent Entertainment titled “The Man Who Knocked Out Dr. Dre”. You can find this interview on all platforms like YouTube, Worldstar Hip Hop, and other social networks. After Jimmy James Johnson signed with Emacculent Entertainment, they also released a new controversial single track “Looks Can Be Deceiving” where he disses Young Buck, exposing details about the ex G-Unit rapper’s lifestyle.
JJ: Long Beach, Calif. and as of today my motivation is my Jr. I’m paving the way, he told me on his birthday recently that it’s time of course I knew what he meant. He’s 9 now and he already written 3 songs with hooks and everything..so he’s my biggest motivation I should have said .
RESPECT.: You’re from the LBC, is it a different vibe than LA?
JJ: Only different vibes are we have
a lot of beaches. We don’t have any blood gangs in Long Beach..we got plenty of parks where you can enjoy your day without people trying to cause problems..we have a issue of black and brown differences to where it has became ongoing racial tension in the LBC.
JJ: My musical inspirations are Scarface, Mystikal, E40, Mary J. Blige, Mc REN , IceCube, Mack 10, Luther Vandross, The Isley’s Brothers, Jay-Z, Brotha Lynch, 2 Pac, Warren G, Biggie ,and the Big Homie Nate Dogg, Rest In Peace.
People are already saying it’s like a movie from being charged as an adult at 15 years old. Then going from California youth authority to being on lockdown at 17 waiting on the Greygoose to transport me to Delano State Prison then I get out hearing all my music been taking. Two months later there’s an altercation with Dr Dre and Young Buck from G-Unit. My life has been great, I’m still breathing.
Long Beach artist or entertainer should of done. Bring more black owned business to Long Beach leading by example in Long Beach is way over due. Shout out to Kelvin and his family at World Famous VIP Records on Pacific Coast Hwy and Lemon St…we wouldn’t have no Domino Lp (Longbeach)
SnoopDogg, Warren G, G Funk, DPG
RBX, Da Twinz, Dove Shack, 213,
The Booyah Tribe,Fosome, Krooked I,
the Eastsiderz, Nate Dogg and Bad Azz may the homie rest in peace.
JJ: Fame and Fortune is the same to me; what matters is how fame or fortune is obtained; it can drive the most sane crazy and both runs neck to neck. Neither is important see what I’m saying?!
RESPECT.: What’s the story behind you and Dr. Dre?
RESPECT.: What’s Jimmy James Johnson about?
JJ: That’s my real government name which I found out at 24 years old. It’s a long story that’s why I did the LP Jimmy James Johnson most of my lifetime friends know me as James Knox.
JJ: Well you can’t win without learning how to accept a loss. I gotta prove myself to GOD and no one else,but I want to show how Long Beach is the most talented in all areas of entertainment and we need our own talent scout building of arts in my city.
RESPECT.: What does RESPECT. mean to you?
JJ: Respect can take you a long way in life. I respect everyone even if I dislike them, because you never know who that person is connected to speaking from life experiences.
