Before "Asleep in the Bread Aisle" dropped on 4/20, there wasn't much to base an opinion on besides a catchy party song and the first white boy rendition of a Gangsta Grillz tape, "The Greenhouse Effect" hosted by DJ Don Cannon himself.

I was living in Atlanta for a year under the support of Scooter Braun, Steve Rifkind and a couple of best friends. Ditching school prematurely and "seeing what
happens" in ATL was a fool proof plan. I had been rapping in my basement on Matlack St as a elementry education major at West Chester University. I felt fairly confident in the change of scenery. With the help of kiniesology major, Tom "Boyder" Boyd, and social skills major with a minor in "chill-daggie," Brian "Brain" Bangley, and Sweet Potato Kang DJ Wreckineyez we set out to change the world.

Once there I would stay up late, hang with hot moms and make a few rap songs. Amongst a few parties and bike rides to Kroger, I penned a few tunes that led to a platinum-single in "I Love College," collaborations w Cee-lo Green, Busta Rhymes and a whole collection of fond memories.

One thing led to the next and I found myself on a country wide tour with fellow sensations Kid Cudi and B.o.B conveniently named "The Great Hangover." Boston, New York, Dallas, Los Angeles....London, Ireland, Amsterdam! I had had my first taste of "the life" and I did not want to go back.

It never felt right going at this alone. And it never will. I'm excited to bring you all along on this journey through The foundation will be the same feel good tunes that got me here and the rest will comprise of the stories, friends and family I make along the way. Be well. Peace. Love.

As a teenager, Jesse, heavily influenced by his parents' vast record collection, began to fuse rock, punk, soul, and funk with the hip-hop of his generation. "My parents musical tastes really shaped mine. My first cassette was Led Zeppelin and my second was Sam Cooke."

Soon, Jesse began deejaying prep school parties around Manhattan largely filling his crates with his parents' records. He laughs, "I was the only sixteen-year old deejay in the City playing Buddy Holly and Lauryn Hill." Downtown crowds, however, quickly gravitated to his eclectic sets and by the time the young deejay graduated from high school he was a staple behind the velvet ropes inside New York's most exclusive nightclubs.

Jesse's encyclopedic knowledge of music and remarkable skill have since taken him around the globe spinning private parties for celebrities including Heidi Klum, Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Denzel Washington, and Karolina Kurkova. Jesse has become a favorite of the fashion and art worlds playing high-profile events for Calvin Klein, Vivienne Westwood, Donna Karan, Diesel, GQ, and Kaws. Of his choice to hire Jesse to deejay his Milan Fashion Week runway show, Tom Ford said Jesse's "musical taste reminds me of my childhood."

Between celebrity and corporate events, Jesse deejays at the most recognizable nightclubs in the world including Liv (Miami), Pure (Las Vegas), VIP Room (Paris), and Chinawhite (London). An emerging producer, Jesse has recently remixed tracks for Kings of Leon, Brandon Flowers, and Peter Bjorn and John.

Jesse has modeled for Marc Jacobs, Uniqlo, and Converse. He has been featured in Vanity Fair, GQ, W, Us Weekly, and The New York Post.

He is best known as the reserved half of the Cool-Kids. With a relaxed rapping style and an interesting lyrical foundation in his verses, it probably shocks most that he is also a very talented producer.

His tracks have been related to summer jams from the 80's and with no sampling noted to date, he draws his audience mostly from the Chicago and LA rap fans. Having done a large portion of the cool-kids releases as well as featuring in other illRoots releases, he is considered a force to be reckoned with(in the near future).
