Who is JKnowTruth?

The Award Winning PROMOTER OF THE YEAR, JKnowTruth has taken the east coast by storm with his innovative, ground-breaking concepts for marketing, promoting and event planning. He is a creative, passionate, and diligent young man who has mastered every entity he engages in. Jervay (“JKnowTruth”) Vanderhorst is a native of Charleston, SC, but grew up in Charlotte, NC.

 JKnowTruth is an individual that believes in taking your destiny into your own hands. He’s a businessman…an entrepreneur—CEO of Street Dreamaz Entertainment (SDE), which made its debut in 2001. SDE is a promotions and marketing company based out of Charlotte, NC. Using creative marketing strategies and promotions, JKnowTruth has helped launch careers for artists such as: 50 Cent, Plies, Floetry, Akon, Young Jeezy, Eve and several other clients.

 Recently blessed with the opportunity to join the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards team in Las Vegas, NV for the previous 4 years! Also honored to work under the umbrella of the late legendary Dick Clark Productions Super Bowl Weekend for the annual NFL Honors. Other notable events worked include: BET Hip Hop Awards (Miami), Black Girls Rock (New Jersey), BET Awards (Los Angeles), Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards (Los Angeles), Latin Grammy’s (Las Vegas), Latin Billboard Awards (Miami), ESPYS (Los Angeles), BET Honors (D.C.), BET Awards (Los Angeles), BET Hip-Hop Awards (Atlanta), BET Celebration of Gospel (Los Angeles).

 Very versatile, therefore he’s more than a CEO, more than a promoter—he is also an event coordinator/host. He is highly requested because he brings life to any event…naturally. Not only does JKnowTruth host events for others…he created his own. He is the host of One Mic Mondays, an event that gives aspiring artists and entrepreneurs an opportunity to be recognized for their talents.

 JKnowTruth has proven himself to be a jack of all trades. He can host, organize events and promote with ease. If anything of importance is taking place you will hear bystanders buzzing and saying, “ask “J” he “knows” (origination of “JKnow” and he always speaks the “truth”). “Strive to overachieve what is expected of you” is the motto JKnowTruth has followed to become who is… leaving very little room to wonder why he is a champion!

  1. J-Know is the “Ish”– the man you need to know in the Charlotte Region. He is a true grinder and very successful businessman. He is also very humble and down to earth. He sat down with me out of his busy schedule to share his wisdom of the entertainment industry and his advice has helped me greatly. I always tell him that I want to be like him when i grow up. LOL! I wish you and Royal Tee much success, J-know.


  2. JKNOWTRUTH is a phenomenal talent. He has the unique ability to not only capture the essence of marketing and promotions but also set an example of what it means to live out your dream and operate in your gift. He can captivate audiences and launch something simple into something magnificent. His natural gifts and talents have truly made him a force to be reckoned with.

  3. One of the most humble men I have met here in Charlotte, JKnow Truth has worked hard for and deserves the reputation he has earned. I hope to be able to do more work with him in the future. His opinion and guidance is highly seeked and trusted. Thanks for working hard to accumulate the knowledge and connections you have attained, and being man enough to allow the next man to learn from you. May Blessings and Riches rain on you and everything you touch

  4. Jervay is very professional, loving, caring, sweet and kind. He has a heart of gold, and goes above and beyond what is expected.
    Through all his trials and tribulations he has risen above the rim and has a lot to be thankful for. This young man stole my heart over 20 years ago and for that he is my SON.

  5. I pride myself on being a man who works hard, and truly earn everything that I get. With that being said, I don’t know too many people who I can say the same thing about…. except this guy right here! His name holds weight. I’ve seen J Know Truth go above and beyond with the music grind, and at the same time will give the shirt off his back. I salute my NC brother, and wish you nothing but more success! #Truth

  8. Man, where do I start. I have known Jervay since I was 13 years old. His love for music is crazy and I admire how JKnow really stuck with his passion and chased his dreams and manifested those dreams to the point where they have not only become a reality but a reality that people respect as a business. Everytime, I come to Jknow for direction, I am pointed in the right direction. Some of us are Underground Kings but Jknow is a King in Charlotte North Carolina and a bright star nationally …
