“Like many others in 2020, it’s been a challenging year as an independent record label, and most of our plans have been on hold since March of this year. This is a great step in recovery and continuing on with our plans from before the pandemic,” says Jacoby “J.T. Pender, founder.
The direct deal will allow GameRunnaZ to directly distribute and manage its incoming releases for first quarter of 2021 which include J.T. as an artist, and an expanded roster of San Diego artist to the world’s most popular social platform and its subsidiaries, which include Instagram.

2020 wasn’t the the year of going out and listening to loud bangerz, but we are fully prepared to get everybody moving again post pandemic wherever Touch Tunes consoles are. Stay tuned for updates!
2020 was an unprecedented year for everyone….
In January of 2019, J.T. began working on his album “Existence,” which was began out of necessity in needing to vent the struggles of losing his mother to cancer and brother to a car accident during a hard week in November of the previous year.
What began as an EP that was supposed to cover the struggle between dark emotions and re-building the label in San Diego turned to a full album as the content kept flowing. Often dubbed a selfish album by J.T. album due to it being primarily for self-reflection, and not tailored to the listener, Existence will prove to touch areas of life that most mainstream music doesn’t.
In the upcoming interview, J.T. explains why he postponed the album release due to the 2020 pandemic, and what has changed in outlook and his artistry. Stay tuned…

What’s good everyone?
That greeting holds a lot more heaviness than it used to. Things are heavy nowadays. Some days many of us are working harder to
find the good in some of the horrific things we’ve been seeing this year.
Many of you might remember the song “In Loco Parentis” from the Breaking Chainz Mixtape that was released in 2017. I wrote In Loco Parentis, the title which I grabbed from legal jargon that meant “of a teacher or other adult responsible for children) in the place of a parent.” in response to the horrific killings of unarmed black men, women, and children during that time.
