Jonathan Beatima

My name is Jonathan Beatima. I go by the stage name, Jon the Boptist.

I am a Hip Hop artist in the Seattle area.

I am a Filipino American born on the Island of Guam.

Being a pastor's kid, my music is heavily influenced by the gospel.

I've been playing bass in the church since I was 13.

Outside of the church, I write and perform rap music.

My music revolves around my experience of being a survivor of gender-based violence.

I find music as a way to connect and express myself when I am feeling lonely, depressed, or angry.

Music is a place where I feel like I can be myself.
