Jim Jonez is a rapper born and raised in Sweden, where he still lives. He started his musical venture in 2006 as a 14 year old, up untill 2012 he was mainly making music in his native tongue: Swedish. He eventually wanted to expand his lyrical abilities and started working with the English language. He has since almost only made songs in English focusing on a more international reach. 
In his late teens he was mainly a battle rapper, both in hosted battles and personal beefs and disses. As his English venture started he switched his lyrical style from disses and punchlines to a more horrorcore approach.
