Jamal Stewart, professionally known as J-Stax, was born on Long Island, New York 20 years ago. His
father, DJ Motown, played Bootsie Collins, Al Green, Biggie, Tupac, and other artists while J-Stax was
growing up, and he developed a love for music at an early age. Stax recorded his first song at the age
of five, and eventually began writing music with family members and hip-hop artists Big S and Mel
Mazaradi. Stax was a star football player in high school, and had aspirations to enter the NFL. However,
the response he received from his first single (2011’s “My Cup”) encouraged him to pursue music as a
career. He started out freestyling and battling, then began approaching song creation as a craft to be
perfected. He released his first mixtape, The Cover Story, in 2012, and the 13-track project has received
over 30,000 views on DatPiff. J-Stax has been featured on ThisIs50, VladTV, Mtv, and many other
major media outlets, and will be performing on the Ohio Hip Hop Awards Summer Showcase Tour in
June 2014. He recently released a new single, “Man In The Mirror” featuring New York legend Fred the
Godson, and anticipates his EP, The Stax Era, will be released in May 2014. @ArisAssistant for all business inquiries.
