Born and raised in Uniontown , Alabama Jarvis “J-Ea$y” Moore never thought he would reach the heights he has. Reason being, from the first grade he was always looked down on, because he didn’t really talk to other kids much and it didn’t help that he didn’t have the “in clothes”. These problems followed him age by age until age 7. That is the age he was introduced to hip-hop (through TV of course) though his memory is a little blurry from that age, at 13 he was introduced to artists like Puff daddy, Mase, Timbaland and Magoo, Missy Elliot, 8ball & MJG, UGK, but most important to him, Jay-z. Listening to Jay-z for some reason he felt as if he could see the young Shawn Carter and he felt like they were the same person growing up. That same outsider so like young Shawn Carter he built a defense that said “F-the world” with this mindset he started rapping at the age of 13.
He was 16 when he started free-styling on radio stations in hopes of making a name for himself. He started freestyle battling on 104.9 with a DJ named DJ Baby Bruce after wining battle after battle he was only known as “J” until after one battle Baby Bruce stated “damn j you make it seem easy” something clicked right then and ” J-Ea$y ” was born. Since Baby Bruce thought he was so talented he paid to produce J-Ea$y’s first song “I Hear You Talkin” which was big z hit the local radio station and was a smash before the DJ took it off due to disagreements between J-ea$y, Big Z and the DJ. J-Ea$y’s next couple of songs, solo tracks, also had great local success. So after all his radio freestyles and talent shows, he graduated high school and attended Alabama State University in Montgomery , AL . While at Alabama State, along with other HBCU’s BET had a black college campus tour where one of the events was a freestyle contest. J-ea$y was the last person to sign up and the first to go on. After cruising through the first two rounds, it was said that his last round set history with the artist he was up against again winning the contest he finally felt as if he had made giant steps to making a name, after recording and releasing a draft of his first mix-tape, he started working with Street Lyfe ENT in 2007 with SLE he recorded some songs, and performed some shows but he wasn’t going anywhere fast, he tried to remain patient and loyal until in mid 2009 SLE had major problems and he joined The Gambit Family, he had already recorded a hit song with Gambit Family so the vibes were already there he said it was such an honor to work with and be a part of a group that he grew to be a fan of. He feels he owes his motivation to his fiancé’ Ikeshia for loving, supporting him, always there and offering ideas when he needed them, his brother Toon, cousins Jamara, Shannon, Christalin and Ryan. Homies, Bryan, Monika, LV , Tre, Cuz, and Heat, especially Ericka, Allen, Jilis, Vicrotira, and Cevonna for all their support and ideas. J-Ea$y now known as Jae Ea$e aka Vokal feels like the Gambit Family is where he should’ve always been.
