Biography

Hailing from North London is one of the most grimesational MC’s steadily rising through the UK music scene, and with his metaphoric ‘Jawz’ there will be no stopping this artist from doing what he does best, music.

Jeeday Jawz began to pursue his ambitions in music with UK garage collective Menace 2 Society at the age of 17, which led him into participating in regular sets on London’s leading radio stations, Mystik and Heat FM. As well as working with his crew, Jeeday released an 8 track promo CD presented by Menace 2 Society. It wasn’t long before the collective gained a large following and started to perform at events across London.

These events to date included venues such as Eros, Fabric, Stratford Circus, west Indian Culture Centre, Brixton Max, Aquarium, Edmonton Green Towers, Play Bar, OH! Bar, The N1 Centre and performances at the Respect Festival, Hertfordshire University and The Queen Mary University to name a few.

Unfortunately after a year or so of raising the crews profile they decided to depart and go their separate ways, but Jeeday Jawz and former M2S member Hammer continued to represent themselves as Menace 2 Society on AXE FM for a further 6 months before concentrating on solo projects.

Having inspirations from the likes of Puff Daddy, Busta Rhymes and Redman, its not surprising how diverse Jeeday Jawz’ musical craft is. His inspirations have also developed from authors CS Lewis and JR Tolkien, where Jeeday explains that the stories of different realms fascinated and encouraged him into using the authors technique of taking the audience into different worlds, a different state of mind.

During this time of expanding his musical development, UKHH artist and cousin Biggz was Jeeday’s mentor and would take him to the studio of Allience Records and collaborate in recordings. This gave him an opportunity to explore the natures of music establishments and study his chosen ambition before jumping onto the bandwagon of the Grime scene, not wanting to be just another MC.

Jeeday began to collect up all this knowledge he gained and started to put together his own projects. The first official mixtape, ‘SK Vibemakers Presents…Shark Infested Flow Vol 1’, was released this year as a free online download which includes work with Sway, Faith SFX, Terror Danjah, Mr Chib, Mikkel Morris and Hammer. With his comical verses and versatile lyrical content of tales, experiences and witty sketches, this first release had received 5,000 hits within less than 2 months.

Now having gained the recognition of talent and respect of being a dimensional artist, Jeeday Jawz continues to represent his musical repertoire in preparation of a phenomenal venture ahead of him.
