Jerry helped pave the way for many Polynesian artists with the help of island music pioneer George "Fiji" Veikoso. The two met in 2005. They immediately clicked and created a sound that opened many doors for the Polynesian community. In 2008, J Boog joined Hawaii/San Francisco based recording & recordlabel, Wash House Music Group Inc. Together they've been on a journey that's most promising with endless limits.
Shortly after that, J Boog teamed up with Yami Bolo & Gramps Morgan of reggae s royal family, Morgan Heritage.

All veryprestigious recording artists & compounds.
