Hailing from Long Island, New York by way of the Midwest is JazzyDrew aka TheJudge aka TheBeatJedi…
Drew grew up with music in the household with his Mother and Sisters who are all musically inclined it was only natural he soon wanted to make his own. By the time high school came around Jazzy was playing guitar and singing with his best pals Jake and Colin. It was during this time that Drew’s taste in music began to evolve. Drew’s high school friend Sam introduced him to making beats with Fruity Loops and it was on! Drew continued to make music with his friends and went on to graduate college with honors with a degree in Audio and Recording Technology. From then he went on to using Reason and Protools and now to Maschine, Logic, and of course the trusty iPad! His musical influences range across the spectrum. With some of his favorite producers being J Dilla, DJ Premier, Pete Rock, and the likes you can see where his classic hip hop style is evolving from. With much support from his loving Wife, family and friends over the years Drew has continued to make music for everyone to enjoy and hopes to continue to make music for the love of music well into the future.
“Thanks to everybody for listening and for all the support and friendly advice and thanks to MaschineMasters for putting on these battles. Thanks to my Wife for pushing me to get back into music after a long long hiatus. And most importantly thanks to God the Creator for continuing to bless me every day!!”
