Born and raised in Moreno Valley, Jimmy Bone$ is one you would call a mastermind of his time. The multi-faceted artist has always been more than a music head growing up in a musical household and in the entertainment business. Jimmy Bone$, born Norman Johnson is the creative director, not just for himself and other artists, but as the founder of NothingNormal productions.
Inspired by OG’s in the rap game revolving around Snoop Dogg and Suga Free, artists such as Mos Def, 2Pac, and Outkast triggered the importance of spreading truth in music. His mother often played Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Zhane, The Johnson Brothers, and old school grooves that molded Bone$ keen ear for music outside of hip-hop.
