James "GO DJ JB" Nelson was born in Opealousas, La. and developed a love of music at an early age. JB was just 7 years old when he realized he wanted to be a Dj listening to WGCI, Chicago's radio station, he heard underground and party DJs spinning and scratching records. His favorite was DJ Jazzy Jeff because Jeff made the turntable an instrument. Since moving to Austin, TX in 1989, JB has studied "The Magnificent" (as well as many other DJs including DJ Screw and Jam Master Jay RIP) and made his own take of the craft. In 1999, DJ JB brought his talent to Grambling State University where he was a Radio Dj and Host. Now back in Texas, he has DJed all over the country, as well as many clubs, concerts, and special events in Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. He is also a member of the region's most influential DJ groups, the GO DJ's, BlackFire DJs, and is a League DJ. Go DJ JB still remains humble throughout all of his success and like he says, STILL GRINDS.....
