Up close with Jesse Brown(JB_MOF).
Posted on: March 31, 2014
Born in Brooklyn but raised in SoCal, JBMOF was no stranger to struggle and hardship being 1 of 3 children living in a single-family
household. JB found his refuge in playing sports all through grade school, but always had a love for music. It wasn’t until receiving
a career ending injury while playing college lacrosse that JB finally realized his destiny.
Now JBMOF has performed for crowds of over 1k and is constantly looking for new ways to
please the people. Along with his team “Masters of Fresh” JB is slowly but steadily building his momentum for his debut and promises not to disappoint once it’s his turn! He takes time to have to have a live chat with his fans in Africa. Which he shares with us his story…..
