When most inner city girls are growing wide eyed over their first pre-pubescent crush, Jersey City’s J SASS was giving her heart to the art of Hip Hop. Penning her first rhyme at the age of twelve, she knew that her youth might be the cause of Hip Hop not giving her a second look. As with most relationships though, she was wise enough to know that she would need time to learn the ways of her new love, understand how to say the things that made it smile, that moved its soul. Taking her cues from artists like Salt N Peppa, MC Lyte, and fellow Jersey MC’s Queen Latifah and Nicky D, she honed in on the craft of writing and became confident that her first love would soon love her back. Growing up in the concrete jungle of Jersey City, J SASS was no stranger to the hard work it took to get exactly what she wanted. Becoming Hip Hop’s favorite lady was no different. “I knew I had to step up my game if I wanted to make a mark in Hip Hop and I was so overcome by the feeling that there was nothing that could stop me: notes The Queen of Jersey…a moniker dubbed J SASS by her scores of fans and always impresses media personalities.
Fast forward to 2013 and the love affair has grown by leaps and bounds. SASS gives Hip Hop her emotion, her stories and her voice and Hip Hop returns the love by giving her a worldwide platform on which to perform. The multi-talented artist has parlayed her reach and fan base into stints in modeling and acting. Creating videos that tell a story, as well as being summoned to star and feature in a bevy of independent films. J SASS has taken her love for Hip Hop and made it tangible. It is a love that her fans can feel each time she picks up the mic. It is a love that oozes from her when she performs and can be heard through the speakers whether she is delving into thoughts on beats about domestic violence or bodying anyone who tests her skills on wax.
The young woman with a love for Hip Hop has performed in a myriad of arenas throughout the tri-state area and is extending her fan base day by day. She gives life to the mothers, daughters, sisters and wives who share their love of family with their love of Hip Hop. J SASS is an ambassador to her city and a proud mom of a young man whose delights in his mom’s gifts and shares her love for Hip Hop.
