Javon was born in New York, NY. He then relocated to Jersey City, NJ and was bred in Irvington, NJ. As a young man growing up in the inner city, Javon always had a dream of being a songwriter. He was always influenced and inspired by the lyrical ability of artists such as Jay-Z and 50 Cent’s songwriting skills. He is also motivated by the strong work ethic of mogul, artist, producer and designer Sean “Diddy” Combs. At the age of twenty, Javon decided to take his playful raps out of the small drunken ciphers and began to record in the studio. He began sharpening his songwriting craft on a constant basis using tools such as instrumentals, original beats and reading books such as “The Indie Bible”. His fan base grew immensely and he changed his name to Franchize Flo. He choose “Franchize” because what ever label or project he was involved in the “franchise” player is the leader, captain, and foundation for what ever success or failure is bought upon. The “Flo” added to his name was simple; it would be a metaphor for his swag and delivery. He gained the attention of his fans by consistently releasing versatile music at a rapid pace
He attended New Jersey City University and majored in Marketing. For the past two years Franchize Flo has recorded and built a huge fan base ranging from Northern Jersey to Jacksonville Fla. His hard work and initiative to networking opened the doors to having fans all across the tri-state area from Harlem, NY to the South Bronx, NY. Throughout his road trip of studios he shared ciphers with hip-hop artist “Infa Red” of the rap group Ruff Ryders. He also worked with various artists and deejays such as DJ Green Lantern, Q Boogie (Green Lantern’s artist) and “Spot” (Jimmie Henchmen’s nephew). Also appearing on projects such as “The Million Dollar Dream” (appeared as a co-writer), “F Beats Who’s Ya Producer”, “Dj Grimey Mixtape”, and his very own project “Product of Determination” he was able to prove he had creativity, personality, lyrical content, and personality that compared to none. Franchize Flo had the opportunity to recently perform at the popular club “Sugar Rays” located in Newark, NJ. Franchize Flo’s lyrical ability is the next best thing taking the flow of hip hop to the next level.
