How long have you been rapping?

I do rap and I enjoy listening to rap however it all depends on my mood, Ive been rapping for a couple years most people probably dont know that

What is your birth name?

My birth name is John William Woolf Jr. My stage name is Johnny STRAWS. A cop in Haverhill Massachusetts gave me that nickname when I was a child because I used to chew on the red coffee stirrers that Dunkin Donuts has.

Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

I was a problem child since birth, on probation all of my childhood. I spent some time in Middleton Prison (30 days) for driving without a license numerous amount of times. I was married once before and have two children with my first wife daughter that will be turning 20 this May and a son who turned 17 last November. I met my second wife (Who I am currently married to now) our 10th wedding anniversary is in August 2013. I met her and my life straightened out. We bought our home in November of 2006.

Do you have any hobbies?

The only hobby I ever had is my music which I realized in the spring of 2011

What are your future goals?

I would love to be a plain ol husband and father and of course writing a hit song...I'm too old to be performing I think.

Are you seeing any profit from your artistic talents?
