JINX

JINX was born March 3rd, 1989 at Providence Hospital in Washington D.C. Growing up in a house with four brothers and 1 sister, he gained important family morals and grew to value what was most important; family. As a child Jinx always was interested in drawing and writing stories.Trusts me, he wasn’t your average kid. By the time he reached 5th grade he won 1st place for an essay writing contest titled, “Change the World”. He was interviewed by the radio station and was also aired on the morning news. From that moment on his father, Shaun R. DeVore, knew his son had a gift for writing.
 
By age fourteen, Jinx parents had separated leaving the family emotionally broken in pieces. He eventually went on to live with his father in his grandmother’s basement temporarily, until his father found him an apartment in Northeast Washington D.C. After living there for a few months they moved to Southeast Washington D.C. where the living conditions worsened compared to their prior living area. By 7th grade, he moved to Riverdale Maryland where he attended William Wirt Middle School. One day as Jinx sat in class, his mind meandered through space. Suddenly he decided to write a verse using rhyming words from rappers Eminem and Lil Wayne songs. As time progressed he became better at his craft, and performed at his first talent show with two of his classmates.
 
On to High School, by then, he was rapping at every lunch period and writing songs almost everyday to perfect his skill. The beginning of his 10th grade year, he lost one of his greatest music inspirations, his older brother Antonio, to the viscious streets of Washington D.C. which changed the way Jinx viewed life. Despite his lost he was determined to keep a strong mind and a strong heart for his family.
 
The following school year he came out with his first mixtape titled, “Bad Luck”, under the local record label DreamBig Recordings. This Mixtape was recorded by Baltimore’s own Amotion(DeepFlow Studios). By this time he was able to perform at Club 5 seasons and eventually went on to be the first 1st winner of the Baltimore Crown Competition hosted by Shaka Pitts & Chin’yer. He received $700 in cash and a lot of exposure.He started networking with local artist like TestMe, Veli Smalls, Lefty Garcia, Lucky Lays and even reached out to Murda Mook(Smack DVD) for a skit on his mixtape. In 2009 Jinx attended the freestyle competition, ‘No Guts No Glory’ which occurred every last Thursday of each month. He ended up winning twice that year for $500 each time. To add insult to injury he turned around and won a 3rd time that following January of 2010(Videos on Youtube). Destined to pursue his dreams he recently took a trip to New York, where he auditioned for BET’s 106 and Park Freestyle Friday.
 
This year (2013) Jinx attended the BET Awards in California. Prior to his departure he dropped two videos on WorldStarHiphop (U.O.E.N.O Freestyle & Angel’s Pie). He then followed up by attending the BET HipHop Awards in Atlanta. The Videos received great reviews along with other videos shot this year by his videographer Jay Mastermind.
 
Hailing from the nations capital, Jinx Gulo, is nothing less than a creative genius. Somehow he manages to express passion and pain while simultaneously leaving you with a message in every song. As cliche’ as this may sound, Jinx Gulo is definitely NEXT UP.
