Johnny J, profound producer known primarily for his work on Tupac's legendary All Eyez On Me album, has been found dead whilst in custody at a Los Angeles County Jail. Initial indications by police point towards a potential suicide. TMZ reported that Johnny J was being detained on a DUI charge, and that authorities had suggested that he had took his own life by jumping off a tier within the jail. A travesty at just 39 years old, Johnny had a wife and two children.

In the early 90's Johnny was first considered a talented producer when he produced the hit single 'Knockin Boots' for his Berklee College of Music classmate, Canydman. The success of this single prompted a meeting with Tupac, and the duo teemed up on Pac's Thug Life album and the Above the Rim soundtrack. The duo partnered up until Pac's latest releases and formed a formidable partnership.

Johnny J produced 'How Do U Want It', 'All About U', 'Picture Me Rollin', and 'Hit Em Up' to name a few and also spearheaded his own Klock Work Entertainment company.
