With the sassy "All The Way"—a track that features the acclaimed Arizona emcee Futuristic—she showed off her dexterous rapping. So What makes Justina Valentine grind so hard?Start with where she's from: Passiac County, a fast-moving, multi-ethnic area in Northern New Jersey. People from this neck of the woods learn to be resourceful, and while it might not be the biggest market in the nation, there are diamonds hidden in these Jersey streets.
