In 1996, J and his cousin Karen Clark-Sheard were both signed to Island/Def Jam Records. Karen's album officially launched PAJAM Productions, which delivered four of its tracks. Clark-Sheard's album rode the Gospel charts for the better part of the next two years, during which time J and his partners in PAJAM saw their own star as a production team begin a rapid ascent, contributing to projects by both major Gospel and mainstream artists. Through all the years of developing the PAJAM company, its own roster of stars - including the female vocal group Ramiyah and male trio 21:03 - and what they call "PAJAM Insurance" (guaranteed quality music), they never lost sight of their goal to one day launch J Moss properly as the visionary Gospel they knew him to be. Finally, in 2003, J and "PDA" wrote and recorded The J Moss Project in a four-week outburst of inspiration. Soon after, J was embraced by Gospel music pioneer Vicki Mack Lataillade and PAJAM entered into a joint venture with GospoCentric Records.
Reflecting back on the major step of his GospoCentric debut, J states, "The song that really stood out is 'Livin' 4.' People still write me or walk up to me and say, 'Thanks for putting it to me on a level I can understand.' People become truly transparent to me when they talk about how that song has touched their lives. I've had HIV positive people tell me my songs gave them strength to carry on for another 3 hours. That's what makes it all worth it for me."
In praise of his partners in PAJAM, J continues, "This thing between myself, Paul "PDA" Allen and Walter Kearney...it's a brotherhood. Keeping that in the forefront has kept us together for over 12 years now. In some crews, if you cross up somebody's money or somebody's spotlight, they'll cut you off! But The Bible says, 'Family first.' How can you go in the vineyards and do what you have to do if your house is a wreck? So we keep it like this: brothers first; business second. We've been commissioned to do this music."
Now with his new album V2 promising to be TWICE as potent as its predecessor, J Moss is anxious to kick things up and into the stratosphere. "From lessons my mother taught me when I was a child to things I've gone through over the last three years, I have truly learned the meaning of patience," J shares. "My faith assures me that God does things in his own time. The beauty of God taking you through things is there's always a lesson. It's not about the victory party or the symbolism of what you go through. It's the lesson. So I've been doing everything in my power – from going over every lyric of my music to watching my health and all that I eat – to make the whole being of J. Moss the absolute best possible presenter and carrier of The Gospel."
