"Born July 2, 1986, JT and his two brothers were raised in Houston, Texas by their mother and step- father. Although he was raised in the church, he led a life of promiscuity, street fighting, guns and violence. It was when JT heard the words "this is your last chance", that he began to adhere to the voice inside that was calling him. Dillard surrendered his life to Christ in 2005 at the age of 18 and began to serve Jesus whole-heartedly.
A hip hop artist, speaker, and ordained youth/young adult minister. Eager to spread the Gospel, JT helped form the group Still Trill Christians (STC) in 2005 with plans to take the life changing message worldwide. STC was the first Christian hip hop group to be featured on BET's number 1 countdown show, 106 and Park. In 2010, President Barack Obama awarded STC the volunteer service award for their song "No Sex".
In 2013, Still Trill Christians released their first album "Kings" which broke into the top 40 Billboard Gospel charts. After 9 years of being in a group, Dillard made the decision to break away from the group and initiate his solo career.
Hip Hop influences the culture of this generation and the next, therefore JT's goal is to give hip hop a complete makeover through music, film, and speaking. JT's vision is to revive the past, revolutionize the present, and prepare the future. Through music and motivational speaking JT believes that in order to make a permanent positive impact you have to be honest with a generation that bases their logic on being "real". By being relevant and transparent, and with sincere conviction, JT aspires to encourage the listener to be who God has called them to be in the beginning, a King.
