Mistah Wilson: Yo, Jsun Borne! We are honored to have you come thru for this exclusive interview with ThaWilsonBlock Magazine! It's been a long time coming, but you're back! We read your biography and wanted to hear from you in your own words. For our audience reading this, could you give us a quick background on yourself?
Jsun Borne: I'm a Hip Hop artist named Jsun Borne aka Ikaflo from Chicago, Illinois. I was in a group named Darcsyde that took over the rap scene throughout the midwest. 

Mistah Wilson: First off, let's talk about your love for tha craft. Who or what led you to do music and how has being a part of it impacted your life as an artist?
Jsun Borne: My love and passion for hip hop came from being a B-Boy growing up, breaking, a graffiti artist etc... I was a drummer growing up listening to jazz, rock, gospel, soul music, everything I could play until I saw the video to Eric B and Rakim I AINT NO JOKE, and that's what sparked my inspiration to rap.

Mistah Wilson: What's tha Midwest rap scene like? Give us tha good, bad, and ugly...
Jsun Borne: The midwest scene is live right now and Chicago is being back on the spot light music-wise but its actually a lot more to the music scene than what's being exposed to the world. It's so creative here in music but the state of violence that has taken over in our city is hurting us very much. Everything is violence, destruction, prison, deaths, and funerals that's all it's become but it has always been more than that here in Chicago.

Mistah Wilson: What current and upcoming projects do you have in tha works?
Jsun Borne: I released my 1st solo project in 2017 THA BORNE SUPREMACY STORY and now I'm working on The Circle of the 5th with 4 singles out right now.

Mistah Wilson: Where does tha motivation behind your message in rap stem from?
Jsun Borne: My motivation behind my paragraphs starts from my imagination, my mental visions, where I wanna go, and all my experience; my good days in my everyday life.

Mistah Wilson: What have been some of tha biggest challenges AND rewards throughout your journey in music?
Jsun Borne: My biggest challenge was not getting embraced. To be honest, everything outside of our city they jumped on but local artists were and still are overlooked... My reward was storming every

stage I could getting the name out there even leaving the state as a solo artist mainly. The internet has helped a lot but still challenging but you gotta grind.

Mistah Wilson: What do you ultimately want to accomplish in music and why?
Jsun Borne: What I want to accomplish in music is finally put on a larger scale being recognized as an all-time great lyricist collabing with other artists having my music in movies, tv shows, games, and inspire people's lives.

Mistah Wilson: Where can people find and follow you online?
Jsun Borne: You can find and follow me on Instagram @borne_legendary726, Twitter @9Legendary726 spotify itunes ect. Jsun Borne and SoundCloud @Jsun_Borne726
