Jason "Json" Watson, Rapper

Jason 'Json' Watson was born and raised on the northside of St Louis, Missouri. His upbringing was extremely troubled. His mother tried to bring him up alone but her addiction to drugs led to the teenager looking for attention on St Louis' mean streets. Sucked into drug and alcohol abuse and violence, at 15 he lost his best friend, Gaylon, and a year later Jason was kicked out of school. He became a member of a local gang and served jail time and at age 18 he was incarcerated for several months. It was while in prison he had a dramatic encounter with God.

On release old habits continued to weigh Jason down until at the age of 19 he met LaWanda Childress, who was to become his wife. Turning his life over to Christ, he immersed himself in the teachings of the Bible and started what was in time to become a full time ministry as a gospel rapper. Over the next few years Json began appearing on other rappers' albums until in 2005 he released the acclaimed 'The Seasoning' album.
