Jersey’s own, Mansor Johnston AKA Leggy, born in Detroit, Michigan on October 27, 1987; but raised in South Jersey. Leggy a Scorpio was musically influenced from a young age. By the time he could walk and talk, he was dancing and singing. From always listening to his brothers and sister and watching music videos, he formed his ear for music. Leggy also watched his father perform at his band rehearsal every Wednesday night growing up. All this gave him fire and desire for hard work, and vision for developing his own style of music. By the time Leggy was in high school, he started his own rap group called O.S.R. out of Runnemede, NJ. Leggy would go to his father’s recording studio, at the age of 15, and work in the Marketing and Promotion Department on Graphic Arts. He became the main focus in the Marketing and Promotion department for all of the artists signed to his father’s company. He took what he learned from those experiences and applied it to his own group. They became a local household name, winning all sorts of talent shows, and selling their own music. His love for Hip-Hop was strong, and influenced by his idol Jay-Z, and other artists such as Lupe Fiasco, Nas, Akon, and Kanye West.
When Leggy graduated from Triton High School, he went on to college and earned his Associate’s Degree in Computer Graphic Arts at the age of 20. During these years the O.S.R. group broke up due to creative differences, so Leggy went solo. As a solo artist, he found much more creative independence. It was then that he grew into all types of other music. He found his strength with a twist of Pop, R&B, and Hip-Hop. He created his potential hit song “High School Sweetheart” reflecting on his life with a journey through his high school years. With his goals in life laid out, and a beautiful journal on film, Leggy began flourishing into a star. Leggy’s influences are Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Tupac, Eminem, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Michael Jackson, Lupe Fiasco, and Akon. Keep your eyes to the radio, and get ready for this shining star!!
As he says “Leggy BANGERS” is the one to watch for!!
