THE ORIGINATOR

JAZ-O

Jaz-O has been a mainstay in the music industry for over 30 years. The Marcy Houses, Brooklyn born and raised rap legend has initiated the careers of Jay-Z, Irv Gotti, Sauce Money, The Lox, Chad Elliott, and Memphis Bleek to name a few. Recalling his first rhyme at the age of 14, he had co-written and produced his first record, "HP Gets Busy" at the age of 21. This song featured his 16 year old “partner in crime”, Jay-Z and friends, Easy LD (E. Ward) and Almond Joy (J. Ward). In 1986 Jaz-O teamed up with music producer Fresh Gordon to create the answer to RUN DMC's "My Adidas" with "My Fila". The young songwriter-MC/producer continued his reign of terror in the streets, destroying challengers in MC battles local and abroad. In 1989 Jaz-O blasted onto the mainstream media with his debut single, "Hawaiian Sophie", and a debut feature on The O'Jays number one single "Have You Had Your Love Today?” Jaz-O was the first rap artist ever signed to EMI Records. He released two albums and an EP from 1989-1991. Along with Prince Paul, The Large Professor, and Mark The 45 King, Jaz produced several records for his projects.  After taking a hiatus in 1992, Jaz-O re-emerged in ‘96 producing the Jay-Z classic "Ain't No Nigga”. Jaz continued his string of production classics for Jay-Z including "In My Lifetime-The Big Jaz Remix", "Rap Game-Crack Game", and featured on Jay-Z cuts "Bring It On" and "Nigga Who? Nigga What?” Producer of the demo that landed The Lox their deal with Bad Boy, Jaz-O has arranged for the likes of Puffy, Rakim, M.O.P., Foxy Brown, Queen Latifah, Kool G Rap and numerous others. But Jaz is most well known for his 'triplet style' of rhyming, which he is majestically titled "The Originator".
