"Jase: Da Juvenile Delinquient"

JASE is a nineteen year-old rapper out of Hollis, Queens. If the name doesn't ring a bell then keep your eyes open in the near future because he is "WHAT'S NEXT!" Currently signed to HollyHood Music, JASE is preparing the release of his debut album, Da Young and Da Restless, which will be released April 2005.

"You got a lot of dudes out here that spit a hard 16 but they can't make no songs. If they get a record deal they'll be on the shelf for the next 5 years." JASE does hip-hop, R&B, pop and rock, he'll make a chick record for you, a party record, or a street record. "We got the whole game covered and we do it well." That's why he's the illest dude in the game that's unsigned and underground and even most the cats that are on the label that are just there.

JASE's motto is pretty simple, "You going to the club, I got it; you going to do a drive-by, I got it; you chilling with your girl, I got it; you trying to get high, I got that too. I got everything you need, hip-hop, pop, r&b. THE GAMES OVER!

This isn't JASE's first record deal either; he had a deal with Dreamworks Records at the age of 13. Unfortunately he was failing school so his then manager/brother Charles "Chucky" Madness declined the deal because school came first.

These days JASE is hooked up with HollyHood Music. Founded by Vincent 'Chief' Washington, and Andrew 'Steel' Lewis, who were close to JASE when he was still young. As soon as he has come of age they decided he was the next big thing and they had to take him under their umbrella.

JASE currently has the mixtape, Already Platinum on the streets hosted by DJ ON POINT.

"If we don't drop this album we ain't eating. We done put life savings into this". The album will be distributed by Atlantic Records. - HARLEM LIVE - Parle Publications

Feeling a bit camera shy


Queens has been known to breed some of hip-hop’s 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” I’m young and ready to make it happen. I’m built for this music game. Hollyhood has created a strong and supportive team to work on my album. We can’t 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. It’s 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 couldn’t 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.
