Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, rapper Jordan Montgomery is the founder and CEO of Driving While Black Records. Jordan's style has been compared to early 2000s rap artists such as Jay-Z, Cam'ron, and Kanye West. His songs have been praised for their lyrical content and social consciousness.
Jordan released his debut album Driving While Black in 2016. As Jordan began selling hats and shirts to promote the album, he noticed that people were buying the merchandise although they never heard his music. From that moment Jordan decided to create Driving While Black Records to reclaim the phrase as a means of self-empowerment and to create a brand and platform that uplifts Black artists.
Jordan has collaborated and graced stages with legendary acts such as Rakim, Chuck D, Anti-Flag, Tom Morello and X Clan. Jordan’s newest album Thank You For Your Purchase But We Are Not For $ale is now available on all major streaming services.
