Biography

As an inner city youth of Caribbean heritage, Jair Dynast saw both sides of urban life. He saw the dark-side of a city struggling with a growing crime rate and an increasing population of young people being raised in single parent homes. Fortunately for Jair, he also saw a city rich with culture as his family fought hard to expose him to an eclectic mix of music in his household and outside. As a young boy of barely seven or eight years old, he was taken to free outdoor concerts at Ontario Place to hear “Chuck” Mangione, Ashford & Simpson and Roberta Flack.

The music at home ranged from Mahalia Jackson’s gospel to Earl Klugh, Bob Marley, Minnie Riperton, Roberta Flack, Santana, Stevie Wonder and classical pieces from Bach, Strauss, Oscar Peterson, amongst others. There was always the staple music of calypso and reggae as a child of Caribbean parents. Therefore, you could say that music was indelibly implanted in his soul like a micro-chip.

All of this music exposure must have subconsciously shaped the chart-topping rapper/producer as he evolved from adversity to diversity. After his athletic basketball scholarship was made obsolete by an undiagnosed heart condition, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, Jair Dynast activated his musical micro-chip and went to work crafting his own unique blends of hip hop, reggae, techno and R&B beats that are as original as they are uncategorized while still being commercially viable.

Following the top 5 single "SnakeEyes", Jair's debut solo album V.I.A.L.E.N.C.E. produced the single "Vicious" which nabbed the highly coveted #1 spot on the Top 30 Grassroots Hip-Hop Charts at Rapattacklives.com surpassing peers like Talib Kweli and Jim Jones. Another single "Promise" climbed to the #8 spot in the Top 100 Most Wanted category on Radio 1 in Greece while "Can't Wait" was chosen theme song for CBC TV's "Make Some Noise" documentary Television Series.

Jair Dynast performed the top singles from V.I.A.L.E.N.C.E. for an audience at Crash Mansion in New York City for the CMJ Music Marathon 2007. The CMJ music conference has selected Jair to perform both times he has applied. The album is now critically acclaimed and Jair Dynast has received coverage worldwide in Hip-Hop Connection Magazine, Knowledge Magazine, Blues & Soul, as well as his native Barbados national newspaper The Nation, amongst others. Online you can find features and interviews on such sites as SoundSlam, UKHH, Urbnet, HipHop.ch, HipHopCanada, IllHill, MVRemix, Rago Magazine, Urban Connectionz and many more. The socially conscious album V.I.A.L.E.N.C.E. was also chosen one of the Top Ten Albums of the Year by RapReviews.

Jair Dynast recently collaborated with Latin-American rapper, MC Magic who had a number of songs on Billboard's Top 50. Produced by Jair, the song is expected to impact radio nationwide in 2009 and will add a new dimension to MC Magic's already popular talkbox sound (given to him by Roger Troutman of Zapp) that is similar to auto-tune now made famous by T-Pain.

Jair Dynast is set to continue engaging his constantly growing international fan base with his monthly Vanguard Series. His innovative, metaphor-laden style of rap continues to live up to what some music critics refer to as “one of Hip Hop's most prolific artists”. The Vanguard series is already getting rave reviews with the buzz single "Simple Plan" making the rounds on top rap music blogs.

“Simple Plan” has already gone viral since its release via video in October 2008 gaining thousands of views on Imeem(4k+), Vimeo(16k+) and YouTube(11k+) and is available on iTunes among other major online retailers worldwide. His next single, the lighthearted yet intelligent streetwear anthem “My Style”, is already on deck as Jair Dynast recently wrapped shooting the video. Expected January 2009, anyone who loves rap music, the blending of Hip Hop, skater and street wear cultures will fall in love with the gritty flows, infectious hook and booming 808s on “My Style”. With monthly releases scheduled from The Vanguard Series expect to hear and see Jair Dynast everywhere!

"Vicious" by Jair Dynast

Verse 1
It’s a vicious cycle that this life wrote
Like Agatha Christie murder is cut throat
Since like 10 years partners in crime’s boat
Real shit ain’t nothin’ sweet like what sugar coats
Started hotwiring cars n boostin’ sneakers
Graduated moving weight n’ sellin’ heaters
Common trap for these young thug thrill seekers
Impressionable young minds without them real leaders
Almost inseparable like them conjoined twins
Tariq, dark skin like Sinka devilish grin
Malcolm a burly nigga with his light skin
Tariq a model type but yo, he was really thin
Malcolm lead a small criminal cartel
Considerin’ the comp. they did kinda real well
Mainly credit card scams n’ contraband sales
Hot headed, talkin’ big wit them small tales
Tariq, like natives was always reserved
Hated that shit and wanted out of that type of world
A better life for his moms n’ his baby girl
Colleges said ball was the ticket out soaked up every word
On the court he ate food his senior year
Sales declined Malcolm’s vex he wasn’t there
Signed his letter of intent n’ Malcolm saw it clear
Shout ‘em dead like “If I ain’t leavin’ nigga you can go, no where”

Chorus 2x
Crab in the barrel, gotta be a Negro trait
(Vicious, Vicious, Vicious, Vicious)
Hate to see another nigga elevate
(Vicious, Vicious, Vicious, Vicious)

Verse 2
Brother lost his life tragic like Solider Slim
Her parents, she had to forget about them
Some ‘em in her chest she couldn’t cough up like flem
Her younger siblings, now she gotta fend for them
That’s the pressures, beautiful girl in the hood
Niggaz like, “Baby yah sexy me wan gi you di wood”
Coca Cola body, exotic like models should
Have a lot of work with features that look this good
Music videos, parlayed principal roles
Bills all paid EZ pass them toles
High prices parties with them gifts of Gold
Diamond rings, niggaz would of gave they soul
Her brother taught her the intellect n’ the street smarts
Now she a gifted hustler, breakin’ hearts
No sex, just sex appeal how she played the part
Not a dumb chick, she had big plans to spark
Studied her books n’ started her own business
In a plush town home wit plans to get this
Her Modeling agency n’ spa for fitness
A young female black entrepreneur mistress
To a chauvinistic baller from the west end
Ain’t like her independence said it had to end
She said fuck that, dropped that nigga n’ broke his heart
Next they found her dead out in Malvern, Nelson Park

Chorus 4x
