Queens has been known to breed some of hip-hops most infamous and legendary artists since the birth of the genre. Joining the ranks of hip-hop heavy hitters Run DMC, 10 year veteran, Cool James, Queensbridge lyricist, Nasir and Slim Shady prodigy, 50 cent, comes to the mainstream, the newest prince of Queens Hollyhood Music recording artist, JASE. Born Jason Shaw, this generation Y artist is determined and prepared to take his rightful place along side some of the finest artists in the game. Understanding that nothing comes for free or easy in this industry Jase has instinctive talent and faithful dedication for his music and entrance into this rap game.
Fascinated with the inner workings of studio sessions, Jase became a studio rat and would hang out and constantly gravitate and emulate the acts that came into the studio. Producer Chucky Madness (Foxy Brown, Busta Rhymes, Petey Pablo) sparked interest in the young marvel that absorbed the rap game like a sponge. JASE became hip-hops biggest understudy. His talent landed him a recording deal with Dreamworks (Nelly Furtado) -the only glitch was he was failing school. At the pubescent age of 13 years old JASE lost his recording deal with Dreamworks. His older brother and then manager producer, Charles Chucky Madness had to sadly decline the deal for JASE.
Crushed and disheartened JASE learned that his music would come second to better grades. He watched sadly as his window of opportunity slammed in his face.
Taking a 3-month hiatus to get his academic priorities in order he returned to his first love, rhyming. This time around JASE would come back more focused and ready for business. He learned more about the business aspect of music and improved on his craft.
Ensuring that JASE would stay out of trouble and complete school went he was sent to live with his grandparents who gave him a safe and structured foundation. Looking to his grandfather as the male role model, JASE completed school and got a job as a supervisor for a major retail chain. Never losing site of his destiny, JASE continued perfecting his rhymes in between shifts at work.
Later JASE moved back to Queens were he hooked up with Hollyhood Music co-founders, Vincent Chief Washington and Andrew Steel Lewis who remembered him as the little kid in the studio everyday. They admired his tenacity and rap style, they signed JASE to Hollyhood Music shortly after. When asked do you feel the pressure of being the first artist on the label JASE confidently responds with a smile and says Im young and ready to make it happen. Im built for this music game. Hollyhood has created a strong and supportive team to work on my album. We cant lose on this one.
When asked about his album the Da Young & Da Restless JASE response I just want my rhymes to move the masses. Its not gangsta, its real. There is no obligatory gunplay in his music. Life has its low and high points, my album tells them both. On his album introduction, Da Young & Da Restless Jase talks about being born the underdog. He rhymes about being born dependently premature. My life was almost over before it began. New York, New York the Chucky Madness produced track, shows JASE in peak form, as he uniquely blazes his pop your collar lyrics over the street track. An introspective track Show Me Love is sure to be an industry favorite as the charismatic artist talks to the haters asking them to show love when they see him making power moves. An artist like JASE couldnt complete his album without showing a romantic side. The track Girlfriend featuring the R&B vocals of producer Rick Steel reminds the listeners that there is someone special for all of us.
No I dont play Live.
