In 2002 J.GIB started Takeova Entertainment with the desire to control his own career and destiny. When asked why he is called “The Soul Of The City”, J.GIB replied “I felt like Sacramento didn't have its own soul and identity musically. Instead of hoping on the bandwagons of other artist from other regions I wanted Sacramento to have a artist that they could get behind and be proud of.” And with that mentality J.GIB has won several awards including the Sacramento Best Rapper Award. He has opened shows for artist such as Ludacris, Nas, E-40, Keak Da Sneak, Mistah Fab, Too Short, etc.
