Based in Southern California, Pac Div started rapping together in high school as an eleven-member crew. Realizing a group of that size was not realistic, they shrank to three members in 2005. Soon after the release of their first mixtape,Sealed For Freshness: The Blend Tape, the group received national attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, The Source, VIBE, XXL and gained the approval of hip-hop legends Pharrell Williams, Ludacris, ?uestlove, Talib Kweli,9th Wonder and more. They continued climbing the ladder, opening up for big names like Nas, Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes,Ice-T, Ludacris and N.E.R.D. After releasing two more mixtapes through Motown Universal, the group left the label and released their first full-length album, The Div, through their own label, The Div Co. and RBC Records. After receiving much praise from the hip hop world with their first release, Pac Div turned up the heat with GMB, which was released onNovember 27 and features guest artists Mac Miller, Kendrick Lamar, Ty$ and many more.
Born and raised in Tulsa as one of the original Oklahomies, Johnny has since become a rhyme spitting, street-ballad singing, force of nature within the music industry. While splitting his time between New York and Los Angeles, Johnny travels the country exposing like-minded youths to his unique flavor of musical eccentricity. Incorporating a healthy dose of his own highly refined musical sensibility, his compositions range from the love songs for the broken hearted, to club bangers meant to rattle skulls through headphones and blow out the windows of your '97 Ford Focus.
Johnny made his first step onto the national stage after signing with DJ Green Lantern in 2008, and has been working with some of the most brilliant and highly respected artists in the game today. With DJ Green Lantern he helped create the song 'Price On Your Head' which was featured on the Grand Theft Auto IV soundtrack. Soon after, he was singing the hook on Nas' Obama anthem, 'Black President' which made its way on his controversial 'Untitled' album.
