Launch Over: J-Krafty’s “Crafty” Music Video Release Party – Where Gangsta Rap Meets Arts & Crafts

J-Krafty, the original crafta, is the world’s first gangsta-rap arts and crafts superstar. Whether scrapbookin’ on tha street corner, making a diorama of yo mama, or rhymin’ on tha mike, J-Krafty tells tales of a sordid, collaged world. His off-tha-rug-hook hit single, “Crafty” is flying off shelves at inner-city record shops and suburban arts and crafts supply houses across the nation. Hate tha game, not tha crafta.
