Since his debut in 2003, J-Meezy has begun his journey to put Providence, RI on the Hip-Hop map. Born and raised on the South Side of Providence, J-Meezy (aka 95 Express) has emerged as a rising star in the Rhode Island and Southern New England Hip-Hop Community.
J-Meezy came to the scene strong, with his first performance in Providence, RI opening up for Lloyd in Dec. 2006 and later for opening up for Young Buck Nov. 2007, and has not stopped performing since. His energetic stage presence not only engages the audience but also continues to push Providence ’s Hip-Hop scene forward. J-Meezy has performed at many staple Rhode Island venues such as the Black Rep Theatre, the University of Rhode Island ’s Ryan Center , many local Non- violent venues as well as numerous night clubs and other venues.
J-Meezy describes his style as ”Relaxed, Smooth, Crunk, Direction, or Raw” and considers Hip Hop greats such as Big Daddy Kane, Cool C, TI, Outkast, Pastor Troy, UGK, Cool G Rap, Mase, Jay Z, 2Pac, Mary J Blige and DJ Franchise to have influenced his style of music and decision to pursue his passion in Hip-Hop. He was actually punished and sent to live in after completing high school and that’s when his love for making Hip hop music took off!
J-Meezy has numerous well received singles such as, 95 Express, Fly Kix Sidekicks, Hip Hop, I’m a Hustla and Da Hood Luvs Me. His new video “95 Express” is on YouTube and videos of J-meezy performing live are located on his MySpace page (www.myspace.com/jmeezy1).
