Jeffery Lee Johnson Jr., (born April 2, 1990), better known by his stage names Roscoe Dash and Roscoe Dash 2.0, is an American rapper and singer from Atlanta, Georgia.
Johnson started composing rap lyrics at the age of 12, after his older brother introduced him into the world of hip-hop.In high school, he and his brother put together a rap group that consisted of four young men who went by the name of Black Out Boiz aka B.O.B., where his original stage name ATL came into play & also where his eccentric use of the Mohawk hairstyle became his signature trend at the time. Though the group had been receiving positive notoriety, ATL would eventually leave The B.O.B. (Black Out Boiz) & get started in his pursuit of solo projects.
He continued recording in his basement and making mixtapes to network himself, & this hard work led Johnson to come across his cousin, Torrey YT Hood, who happened to be a sponsor of a local rap group who called themselves Travis Porter.
Johnson soon recognized that he had to create a new identity other than Shadowfade to restart his music career, & be acknowledged for his own musical work.
Roscoe Dash released a song “All the Way Turnt Up” featuring Travis Porter and they released it on their mixtape I’m a Differenter 2. Dash was only credited as a featured artist. According to Travis Porter, this was just a mistake.
