J-Blaque was one of the standouts at the Process of Illumination 5 tryouts in Cebu. He was part of the special picks, and his first official battle took place at Gubat 5 against Aelekz. The emcee from Lapu-Lapu City lost his debut battle, but it further motivated him to be a better lyricist. Since then, J-Blaque has been collecting wins with his perfect mix of wordplays, humor, and straight-up aggression.
The 2020 Isabuhay Tournament is where J-Blaque officially became a top emcee. Many doubted him when the lineup was released, but once the competition began, he proved everyone wrong. He faced Goriong Talas at the finals and ended up winning the championship in a back-and-forth match.
