John.Average
John.Ave (formerly known by the moniker "Alby") is an MC/Producer that prides himself in being...well...average. Born in Portland Oregon, John has lived in multiple cities including: Houston and Dallas Texas, Tampa Bay Florida, and Snellville Georgia; the latter being the where he chooses to rep. Ave's music has been praised for it's honesty, relatability, and ability to bombard the listener with complex lyricism and a bold sense of humor, without sounding pretentious or rapping about rapping...

Before deciding to change his stage name mid 2012, John released 2 mixtapes under the name "Alby". "Shades of Black" in 2010 and "Rookie of Tomorrow" in 2011. Neither of the CD's managed to gain Ave the momentum he had expected. Disgruntled, John chose to take a break from music in late 2011 to focus on school and evaluate what was impeding his success. Studying the techniques of familiar artist he found his influences in acts such as (Blu, MF DOOM, Binary Star, CYNE, OutKast, UGK, Flying Lotus, The Roots, Black Hippy, Jay Electronica, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, The Soul Providers, Wiz Khalifa, Madlib, and Kanye West.)

Incorporating the influences mentioned into a his own unique style John returned to the scene in early 2012 with the song "Schidaddle" (Produced by the well known EOM), a short track showcasing Ave's newfound rhyming abilities. Cited for it's humbling honesty and Ave's effortless delivery, the track proved John may actually be able to live up to the potential many of his peers (friend and artist alike) see in him. John continued to follow up on the success of "Schidaddle" with tracks such as "Yancesterday" and "Concept ft. w.or.d", both of which managed to follow in the path of "Schidaddle"'s success.

John.Ave is currently working on his debut EP entitled "thankyou", a project he promises will be full of the working man's lyricism and brutal honesty he has become not-so well known for. John's mission to bring the crown back to the South probably won't be televised, so you'll just have to follow his progress on Youtube, Twitter, Soundcloud, or Facebook. The "Ave" may stand for Average, but John is well on his way in proving he's far from it.
