Formerly known as J Wilkerson, buzzing Louisville, Kentucky rapper Julius re-emerges with his boldly defiant new single “Chozen.” Produced by Dizzy Wolfe, the song is a deeply personal record that showcases Julius’s knack for storytelling. The ominous production sets the tone for a story about a childhood friend that fell victim to an unjust system, and underlines Julius’s purpose as the “chosen one from his community to make it in rap and bring light to the stories of the voiceless,” despite the odds stacked against him.
“Growing up and seeing people around me fall victim to a broken system , I knew this wasn’t all the world had for me . At a young age I knew that I had to be the one to show them the way. Someone has to lead us back to a state of consciousness. It was me all along. I was ‘Chosen.’” – Julius
