Blue a.k.a “J-Statyke” is a New Orleanian. Music is in his blood. Being related to the late great Mahalia Jackson and Tyga from the New Orleans “Super Group” graveyard Souldjas, He was destined to be a stand out in the music industry. Under the name “J-Statyke”, Blue was signed to Rock Solid ENT in Nashville, TN (which was backed by NBA Star Gary Peyton). He was featured on the compilation for Rock Solid. Immediately after his return to New Orleans, he was featured on Dappas album titled “The Preview 2” and released two mix tapes “Real Recognize Real” and “Ill Nature.” Blue has performed at the House of Blues, Outer Limits, Tipitinas and has worked with artist such as Dappa, Tyga, “Super Producer” Deezle, the legendary group Partners-n- Crime and Grammy award winning group Nappy Roots. He has opened for heavy industry hitters such as Lil Wayne, Drake, Nappy Roots and many more. Often compared to LL Cool J because of his muscular physique, sexy smooth lyrics, and piercing baby blue eyes, Blue is taking the south by storm. Blue and Biz just dropped their 1st hit single “Boomerang” off their album The Awakening.
Da Biz fell in love with hip-hop when L.L. Cool J told him to love his radio; Run DMC told him which way to walk; and KOOL Moe Dee told him to go to work. Born to a musically inclined family, Da Biz has been writing rhymes since he can remember. He would write raps in his room to the beat of the music coming from the parties his older brother and DJ friend would throw on the weekends. The Biz started taking his craft seriously when he met his future Black Knights group members—Spook and Tiger the Don—in high school. The groups first single “Where my niggas at” received some notoriety. Sadly, due to creative differences, the Black Knights disbanded. Tiger started a solo career and Da Biz and Spook created Selafam, a new label devoted to traditional hip-hop. Unfortunately hurricane Katrina hit and once again Da Biz’s music ambitions were put on hold. Upon his return to New Orleans, Biz meet Blue and the two shared the same artistic vision. The two dropped their latest collaboration “Boomerang” of their Awakening album this fall. “Boomerang” is taking the south by storm.
