Founder of ItzJustMuzik Records, Julius Reed (aka Blk Juew) was born in Gary, Indiana on
August 30, 1981. Trying to escape the mean streets of Gary, Indiana, fighting through diversity,
drug temptation, and gang affiliation, Blk Juew in 1999 was charged with gun possession and
recklessness endangerment while standing in Ivan Hoe projects. After only a few days in jail,
Blk Juew realized he needed change.
In August 1999, Blk Juew convinced Gary City Courts to drop the gun possession and
recklessness endangerment charge. In exchange, Blk Juew agreed to join the USAF (United
States Air Force) in December 1999 Blk Juew enlisted. Juew served in the military for 11 years
before being honorably discharged. His love for music came while he was deployed to Iraq,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kuwait. He stayed up countless hours staring at the stars in the desert
while listening to different genres of music. In 2011, after his release from the Air Force, Juew
experienced deep depression and anxiety. He was soon diagnosed with Post Traumatic System
Disorder. After taking multiple medications and participating in group therapy sessions, he found
music was better therapy than drugs. Blk Juew began freestyling, creating choruses, writing
songs, and putting a team together.
His first project was with Trap Boyz, featuring Young Dro from Hustle Gang. The single didn't
make soundwaves like Blk Juew anticipated. Soon Juew decided that he wanted to build his own
brand from the ground up. Juew grabbed local artists, K.Stone, Lil Fien, Polo, and Prynce Lupe.
K. Stone took the crew and created SneakMobb. SneakMobb dropped their first mixtape
“Campaign” on 7 November 2017, created a crazy buzz for their first mixtape. ItzJustMuzik
