Bio

Biography

KiNG JAZZY has been raised in the tradition and culture of JAMAICA while staying grounded in his EAST HARLEM roots. This is apparent in his music. A lyricist, whose style SHOULD be classified as a cross between Reggae and Hip Hop. But, with the various blends of Electronica, Rock, World Beat, Calypso and others, its not quite fair to place him in any one category. To quote the Artist "I make dance music for everyone, you know, the whole world!”

King Jazzys' debut CD "Jazzifrass", is a self-produced compilation of songs recorded at his own "Black Love Studios" in Jamaica. It's an album that showcases the diversity of the artists repertoire. His Reggae roots are planted firmly in songs like; "Rock and Come In", "Ready Fi Roll", and "Chill Out". Dancehall dominates on songs like; "Soljah Man", "Gravity Glamity", and "Police and the beast". The Hip Hop influences can be felt on; "Serious", "Holiday', and "Nowhere to Run". Then there's the searing guitars on "Partime", and his style is personified in the cross over hit "Y.O.U.", a rebellious rant, where he pleads for global unity.

When recording for "Jazzifrass" was completed, he then returned to America, and created STARZAN ENT. Based out of Detroit, Starzan launched an assault on the underground music scene with stunning live performances and intriguing T-shirt designs.

Recording his 2nd album, "Jazzwah?” presented the opportunity for Jazzy to work with Dancehall producer Devonte for "Boom Draw". As well as up and coming Hip Hop producers; Develop from NYC for "Gravity Glamity" and The Composors from ATL for "Yu No Gangsta" and "Hood Fi Yu".

On the other hand Jazzy's growing reputation in the Hip Hop scene has people wanting more. Always heading in a new direction with his sound, Jazzy has started recording a Hip Hop EP. He teamed up with Motown native Paradime, (who 9-5's as Kid Rocks DJ), on the song "The Reaper", and produced a video with 5830 Productions, for "Make A Flick".

KING JAZZY toured the West Coast, Canada, and Hawaii with Reggae legend Sugar Minott and has shared the stage with Buju Banton, Junior Reid, Warrior King, Luciano, Capleton, Pappa Bone, Israel Vibrations, Turbulence, and Sizzla.
