Jaze Dubya

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, 1984. Music & Creativity has always been apart of his life.
At the age of 5, Josh wrote the Alphabet backwards and began to sing and mimic various musicians and artists.
By age 9, he was rocking on his Grandmother Mae's, karaoke machine rapping to Snoop Dogg, Ugly Kid Joe and Salt n' Pepa.

"I used to rewind tapes from Coolio, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Snap in Grade 5 and write out the lyrics, then rap it."

"When I was 11 years old, I performed for the first time at Montrose Elementry, the song was "Gangsta's Paradise" with my friend "Wheels" aka Bradley Reid.

"It was around Grade 9, when I had the dream of being a hip hop artist."

This was back when hip hop was young, wild and untamed. Around the turn of the Millenium, Josh befriended Darcy Blinston aka Durty Boi. He moved with his family to Morinville away from the city of Edmonton, to attend High School.
During the high school years Darcy & Josh wrote raps, spit rhymes on karaoke machines and recorded on tapes. Later moved on to a USB mic and recorded to beats on the computer. Thus forming the Duo "Hypnotix" in 2001.
After High School, they hit the studio. The first was run by a DJ named Cognito, in which they laid down their first track. 2005, they linked up with Edmonton based rappers Profane & Tekneek. Recorded "Fantastic Four" in J-Soul's studio.
Still keeping the dream alive, Josh (Jaze) was introduced to D.S.G(Dolla Sign Geezus) in 2006. He was brought into the Edmonton scene. In the past 5 years he worked, performed and recorded with such Edmonton based artists as: Sonik, Proveli Paragon, Kesh, Yak Dollaz, Brothers Grim, Kryple,
The Royalties, Anonymuz, Big Shot Music, Spryo & LMNO-G,Ambiguous, NJC, Fatty Jones, Nova Rockafeller, Kade aka Graffiks, Jinx Tha Konstrikta, Profane, J-Soul, Stress.
Presently he started his own label called Green Heist Productions and runs his studio in St.Albert.
Working with new artists: Rukkiss, MissDfy, Protege Illest, Realistik, he has no desire to stop or quit making music. Recently just released his first solo LP enititled "Personality Dizzorder" on iTunes, CD Baby & Digistation and local shops around the 780. Jaze Dubya is truly a hip hop artist and musician to look out for!
