Born in Jamaica West Indies now a citizen of Canada residing in Toronto with Vancouver ties, J Star initially flourished as an actor, but soon felt he needed another avenue to purely express his creativity. “The difference between rapping and acting begins at its origin. Acting is stimulated by the mind, rapping is stimulated from the heart and transferred to the public unselfishly,” says J Star.
J Star quickly understood the power of social media by incorporating it in his hit single “YouTube Girl,” a contest to find the hottest women in and out of the country.
His lyrics paint vivid pictures of the struggles of becoming an entrepreneur in a world of recession. “Rapping is a huge part of my life,” admits J Star aka AirCanada.
J Star is getting ready to release his new mixtape “Free Agent” hosted by DJ Mustard, producer of Tyga's “Rack City.” With the single “Clap Clap Clap” produced by Boi1da J Star is making sure he's surrounded by talent. “Free Agent is the new, next big thing. I’m just focused on music right now. No features on the project, because too many people depend on others,” notes J Star regarding featuring too many other artists.
The Toronto resident is also multi-tasking, co-directing all of his music videos, putting his acting knowledge to use for his music. Signed to Forever Young Entertainment and pushing the “Forever Fly Gang,” J Star is knocking down his competition one opponent at a time.
