Jesse S. Francisco also known as Jesse Jaxx is a rapper/singer/songwriter/producer and the founder of DragonSoul Entertainment.
Francisco was born in Halle, Germany on the first day of the year 1991 to an Angolan father and half Nigerian, half German mother.
With an abusive dad and being bullied at school, Jesse's childhood definitely wasn't easy. "Music was the only thing that kept me on track."
When they moved to Munich, Germany, he met recording artists and together they recorded his first song. That was by the age of 16, shortly after he set up his little home studio while living in the Munich social housing projects. More than 10 years later and with a new confidence he recorded and released three Mixtapes, four Singles, one Group Album and two EPs, got nominated in the category Best Rap by the Dercy Nyota Awards, won the KXNG Crooked (Shady Records) Hip Hop Song Contest and was featured in various American online radio shows and magazines including "The Hype Magazine". 2018 he appeared on the protest song "Wir sind mehr-München gegen Rechts" formed by 18 rappers to address the increasing popularity of an racist party in Germany. This gave Jaxx his first appearance on the German radio and appearances on more magazines.
The African-rooted rapper says he is as much a mixture, as is his sound. His influences come from genres like Hip Hop, Soul, Reggae and even Rock music. Artists like Outkast, Dr. Dre and Lenny Kravitz always fascinated him, so you can guess that J.A. double X is "not afraid to be different". When you watch his videos or watch him LIVE on stage, you see an unique performer, who paints his face and wears a dragon chain, which means: " I go with wisdom, strength and a mysteriously free spirit" he says. It's that "Free Spirit" that reflects on his lifestyle and music.
JJ's brand of conscious rap brought him to release an album with the group "Circle Of Energy", formed with former girlfriend.
They performed at Munich's Backstage in front of around 500 people but separated before the promotional run started. He released his solo debut single and dropped the "Universal State of Mind" mixtape the following year. After the release of EP "The Perspective" and the feature with Grammy Award nominee and RnB singer Raheem DeVaughn, Jaxx dropped the single "Stargazer (Frantic)" with Asian/British group Naan Breddaz and announced the "Mind Elevation EP" available on September 21. "Angel Tears" Featuring KXNG Crooked, the long awaited single and contest winning track is finally released and was the first taste of the new EP which is available now.
It was finally announced that Jesse Jaxx and his original track “Angel Tears“ was indeed the official contest win and soon thereafter his track would be completly revamped boasting the audio and visual pairing of the German based Jesse Jaxx alongside the Long Beach, CA. native Crooked I. For Jaxx, having his submission picked as the best track and winning the grand prize package was definitely a dream come true.
The contest included a prize package valued at $10,000 with notable highlights for the winning artists‘ single submission focusing on an exclusive collaboration with Crooked I coupled with the recording of an official music video, ...
“Universal State Of Mind” is an excellent and refreshingly tense mixtape that’s going to be hailed as a masterpiece in some quarters from people who really want you to know that they know where it’s coming from.
“Aesthetically pleasing, emotionally resonant and entirely relevant"
