LiL June was so young at the time he wanted to make his own band and be around young people.
At the age of 13, Lil June and his cousin John Jon started Sensation Band (2006). He learned a lot from the exposure, meeting people who were involved in the music business before him, and that’s how he began to switch his style.
Sensation Band was together for only 2 years from 2006 – 2008. After Lil June left the band, the band decided to break up and members went their own way. Lil June decided to become a solo. His first hit single was “Up in da Club”(2008). After the hit single came out. When 2009 arrived, Lil June began to perform at different venues right away. He also created another name for himself because he loves to put up a big show once the punta riddim hits him; he named himself La Punta Chow.
As the year goes by, Lil June started to work on his first solo album called “Let’s Do This” (2010). The first single from the album was “Up in Da Club” and the next was “Jam To De Punta”. The crowd always goes crazy when Lil June gets on da mic. He performs good music from the heart and if you ever come to one of his shows, you will be entertained.
