In 1991, JT founded the label [[Get Low Recordz]], and released his debut album, ''[[Don't Stop 'til We Major]]'', the following year at the age of 18. His 1993 follow-up album, ''[[Playaz n the Game]]'', featured the single "Game Recognize Game", which received significant airplay. The success of the album led to a bidding war amongst record labels, and JT eventually signed to [[Priority Records]] in 1995. His third studio album, ''[[Dwellin' in tha Labb]]'', was released that same year on Get Low and Priority Records, but was commercially unsuccessful and Priority released JT from his contract. JT went back to self-distributing to his albums through his own label, and spent the money earned from his deal with Priority to make a state of the art recording studio and began rapidly producing and releasing numerous albums.
