BlizzyBoy LJ is the true definition of someone who does not give up! From growing up in the East Coast to moving to Los Angeles, no matter what hardships BlizzyBoy LJ had to overcome, he is here to prove that you can make it! Growing up, Lamonte John split time between New York and Connecticut. His name, BlizzyBoy, was inspired from when he would invite his friends over to the inner city where his mother lived. He joked to his friends telling them to come to the “Blizzy”, and that’s when he decided to go by BlizzyBoy LJ.
In 2015, the hip-hop artist moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue music. While living with his dad at the time, he would make CDs and sell them in Hollywood to make extra money. Some days he would make anywhere up to $70 but sometimes, he wouldn’t be as lucky. He then decided that going to school was his next best option.
BlizzyBoy LJ attended school for a few years in Santa Barbara. While living in SB, he began to write and record music often. All throughout college, he also had opportunities to perform at shows for Migos, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, and Famous Dex. However, the independent artist eventually dropped out of school and moved back to LA to pursue music full time.
BlizzyBoy LJ hit some of his lowest points while living in Los Angeles. He once became homeless and was sleeping in his car, showered in gyms, and stole food from supermarkets just to have a meal at the end of the day. His father’s death also hit hard for the independent artist. However, BlizzyBoy LJ said he always knew he had a purpose and reminded himself that things will get worse before they get better.
He added, “Most people do not realize how important it is to believe in yourself.”
The artist has always focused on his dreams. He continues to make music and hopes to build a music catalog that will last forever!
Currently, BlizzyBoy LJ is working on an EP and is excited to put out new music. There is no information or release date set for the upcoming project but keep in mind, it won’t be something you’ll want to miss!
