Lyrics:Found 12 lyrics at BusyR.com Lyrics Archive.
Info:Mr.J. Medeiros from Los Angeles, California is member of The Procussions. The MC released his much anticipated solo album "Of gods and girls" on Miclife Recordings (Japan) in 2007.

Tattoo
Mr. J Medeiros was tattooed on the TV show Miami Ink, TLC (The Learning Channel). The show was aired December 12th, 2006.

Constance
Mr. J officially launched his anti childtrafficking campaign "IamConstance.org" in Los Angeles on July 18th, 2007. A website that relates to the non-traditional, "hit" single of the album Of Gods and Girls (2007): "Constance".

Prostitution
"Constance" is the true story of a girl raised in The Philippines, kidnapped, and forced into prostitution and internet pornography at a young age. The video for "Constance" (which has already compiled over 100,000 views on YouTube), illustrates how Americans support this scenario everyday through "legal" and "illegal" internet porn sites.

Responsibility
"People don't see the connection between clicking on the internet here and someone being raped in a hotel room on the other side of the world," exclaims J, "I want people to recognize our responsibility in what is happening here. Child pornography is a $3 Billion dollar market and the porn industry all together is $57 Billion worldwide; it brings in more money than professional football, baseball, and basketball franchises combined."

Constance video
Mr. J. says his video "Constance" was denied by MTV for being too controversial regarding the subject at hand: "I'm on Rawkus/Sony, the label that first put out Talib Kweli, Mos Def, etc. Now they all got videos on MTV ! But me? Mr.j.Medeiros? They refuse to show because they say, "It is too controversial". After they told me too "take the shot of the condom out", which was just one of a long list of things they wanted to change. Including lyrical content !!! What?"
Not MTV yet, but on August 20th, 2007 Mr. J. sent out a bulletin stating VH1 picked up the "Constance" video. VH1 stands for Video Hits One, and is directed to an older audience, than it's sister channel MTV.

MTV Base
The MC got better results, when Rawkus pushed the video "Keep Pace", which received rotation on the program MTV Base (MTV United Kingdom). The hip hop program makes use of a chart based on votes by viewers.

New Project
In an interview with Sol of HipHop radio (April 2007) the rapper confirmed he and Stro are working on an album together.

Albums
His album "Of Gods and Girls" received it's international debut through Rawkus Records in July 2007. The album is an enhanced CD containing two videos: Constance [original version] and Keep Pace.

Differences
The Japanese version (Miclife Recordings) has two different bonus tracks: Half A Dream (Siamese Sisters Remix) featuring DJ Destro and Amelie (Mike Kilo Sentimental Remix) as to the American version (Rawkus) that has the bonus tracks: Honest Man Hustle and Keep Pace (Stro Remix).

Labels
After Mr. J. Medeiros left his label Rawkus Records in 2008. The rapper announced on September 14th, 2008 he would release his sophomore album on Quannum Projects.
On May 31st, 2009 he officially stated his release "Friends Enemies Apples Apples" will come out on the label Quannum Projects.

New Project
