Social Buttafly: The Chrysalis
It's easy to get lost in the crowd as an artist, unless you are the one the crowd is there to see. We introduce Hip Hop artist "Jamazz". To some he is known as "Mazzi Mo", others know him as "J. Wes" and few know him as "Son of Jarell", no matter the name it's the hunger you will remember. Jamazz was born as John Wesley Mays in Springfield, Illinois in 1976 and at 15 years of age when boys chased each other on bikes, Jamazz chased kids away with mics. As Hip Hop has grown, Jamazz has grown with it and has established himself as the frontrunner to catapult his home base; Omaha, Nebraska into the national spotlight. The first record that Jamazz released was with a group called Angels with Dirty Faces, known to most as "ADF". They took Nebraska and most of the Midwest hostage from the year 1999-2002 and created a solid following at every show. In 2003, Jamazz released a solo album titled "Lazy Fishin" with veteran beat constructor DJ JVC and moved many units while creating a strong following as a soloist. In addition he released "Genetics" on Unda Tha Roof Records in 2004 with a great response. Since these three releases Jamazz has created a high demand to appear on projects with other Hip Hop artists in the Midwest. He is now set to release his third solo album, "Social Butta-Fly". When asked about his solo album and his viewpoints on the state of current Hip Hop, Jamazz said only this; "Many different elements, Social Butta-Fly is an example of that, constant evolution, never stagnated". His performance history consists of venues across the United States and has performed with National acts. Influences on Jamazz include Das EFX, Public Enemy, Ras Kass, KRS ONE, Ice Cube, Common, Mos Def, Ludicris, Outkast, Wu-Tang and anything real. The easiest way to describe Jamazz is "Hip Hop".
