A young hip-hop rapper named Jaydis Crete had a unique upbringing that significantly influenced his musical career. Jaydis was birthed by his parents, who were never married, in Queens and Elmont after being born on March 12 at Long Island’s Franklin Hospital. He spent the workweek with his mother and the weekends and summers with his dad. While his father was born in America, his mother is Jamaican.
Jaydis’ older sister, Simone Starks, who was signed to LL Cool J’s Warner Brothers label in the late 1990s, greatly impacted him as a child. In the house and the automobile, she would play 90s hip hop music by artists like Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie Smalls, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, The Lox, Method Man, and Wu-Tang Clan. Jaydis’ passion for music was stoked by his exposure to the genre.
Although Jaydis was living in Queens on Hillside, his mother asked to have him delivered at Franklin Hospital since she thought it was a superior facility at the time. He graduated in the class of 2009 from Floral Park’s Sewanhaka outstanding School, where he routinely received outstanding marks and was named to the Honour Roll.
Jaydis’s first encounter with racism occurred in the sixth grade when a white student called him a racial slur. In response, Jaydis punched the student in the nose and was subsequently suspended. His father called the school and requested that the other student be suspended as well for his hate speech.
Besides himself, Jay-Z was always Jaydis Crete’s favorite artist growing up. He also had a tumultuous family life, as his father once pulled a gun on his mother’s boyfriend after the boyfriend hit Jaydis when he was six years old. Due to his mother’s work schedule, Jaydis was raised by his Aunt Janet until he was nine years old. He was cool with both the thugs and the nerds in his neighborhood, never feeling the need to join any clique in high school.
Jaydis was robbed at gunpoint when coming residence from school with a buddy when he was 17. Despite this tragic occurrence, he pursued his musical interest and marketing businesses. His first released project, “Parachute,” consisted of 13 tracks. After taking a break from music for a few years, Jaydis dropped several successful singles, including “Ain’t Gon’ Make It,” “Celebration,” “I Want Everything,” “All State,” “Show Me Love,” “Canopy,” and “Money Don’t Stutter.”
Jaydis’s rap style is lyrical and reflective, with a mix of introspective and energetic tracks. He has performed on television at “The Vault” in Elmont for Uncle Ralph’s Video Music Box event in 2012. With his unique background and artistic talent, Jaydis Crete is a rising star in the hip hop world.
Jaydis Crete is definitely one of the best artists we’ve ever seen coming out of New York and is one to stay up to date with.
