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.
