Biography

What happens when you mix pure talent, perseverance, and versatility? None other than 21 year old femcee, Jayy Starr. Born June 4, 1989 at Daniel Freedman hospital in Inglewood, "I was destined to shine," says Starr. Surpassing most female artists in her genre and going just as hard as her male counterparts “I couldn’t see myself doing anything other than music, I honestly can’t. I had two jobs, both of which I was fired,” laughs Starr “Music is me, and I am it.” "Do you really realize you are better than most of these mainstream rappers today?" says Q of Digital Noise Pictures, also a good friend of Jayy’s. Being a South Central native Starr grew up in a single parent home with her mother, grandmother, and older sister surrounded by some of Los Angeles’ most dangerous gangs, but never let it influence her. “Yeah, I tend to talk about guns and drugs in some of my songs, but that’s because that’s what I grew up around. I want to paint a mental picture of what I went through in the head of the listener, but never will I condone to anybody practicing any violence of any sort.”

With three music videos under her belt, many more in the works, and a series of mixtapes still buzzing the internet long after their arrival, she would be any labels dreams. Starr is also currently blueprinting her fifth mixtape and a possible album for release in 2011. She recently released her newest addition to her hitlist, “Which One of Yall” which is driving clubs insane all over. With tons of labels watching, big things are said to go down for Jayy Starr. She opened up for well known Canadian rapper/actor Drake and featured on Myspace Music setting the bar up even higher for trailing artists.

Growing up in a home where music was a big part of her life, Starr began singing at the age of 5, performing at events with her grandmother all over. She then began rapping at the mere age of 9 years old. She’s done shows in such venues as La Conga Bar & Grill, Rhythm Lounge, Catina Lounge, ASU Fox Theatre, Club Aladdin, Club Lima, the Celebrity Center, CAPS, The Terrace, a number of BestBuy stores and BB Kings in Universal City. "I just want to give the people music they can vibe to, stay true to my roots, and make sure my family is financially set for life." Says Starr. If she continues at the lightening fast pace she’s going now, that task would be no problem to complete.

Starr is currently working to build her buzz on the streets and the internet. With outlets such as MySpace, Reverbanation, Beta Records, YouTube and now popular Twitter, she has already begun to do so at full speed. With her fan base growing daily she plans to take the world by storm with her influential music. “I pour my heart into every track I make. I can finish a full song, go back and read it, not feel it, and start all over. I’m a perfectionist.” She is hoping to be one of the first unsigned artists to break into the mainstream industry before landing a deal. “I think I’ll get more respect that way. I sing, songwrite, rap, produce, and engineer. I also act. Once I get it in it’ll be a problem” Says Starr.

“Anyone that doesn't sign you is foolish. You have a bright future ahead miss." Says Q. Lots of buzz is created when her name is spoken. Some call her the "The Princess of Hip Hop", while others call her the “West Coast Voice of the Youth”. She definitely spins lyrical webs entangling her competition. With a stand out, one in a million swagger and an undeniable lyrical skill, this is one artist you would definitely want to keep your eyes on.
