Washington, DC-born Steven “SHATiFF” Jenkins moved from Glenarden, MD to Clinton, South Carolina as a youth, and took his principles of allegiance and loyalty with him, tagging himself as an authentic human being before even making the declaration as an artist. After moving to South Carolina, his crew evolved into a collective known as the Universal Souljahz. It was with this group of young men where SHATiFF sharpened and whittled his skills as an artist, living and breathing the cyphers that they kept in motion.
In 2004, SHATiFF returned to the DMV scene with an agenda to fulfill his musical enterprise. Rooted in reality, the neo-righteous emcee made an impression on several heavy-hitters in the nations capital music scene including Studio 43 CEO Kenny Burns; Tabi Bonney’s manager Backie Thomas; by producing relevant music that shows his camaraderie and continued development in the underground music circuit. Having collaborated with entities like JUDAH the Producer, 1st Impressions Studios, and Marky (Universal/ SRC) to give life to music through a brand entitled AuthentiCore; The Grit of the Grind, this authentic hip-hop brand has shared its products with music lovers across the board, remaining authentic to the core.

A-Wax is releasing hew new album, Jesus Malverde. The 14-track project, which includes features from Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, DJ Paul (of Three 6 Mafia), and Ca$his, along with production from Southside, Cardiak, Nonstop Da Hitman, and more, is being released for free via A-Wax’s own label, Pie-Rx Recordz, in conjunction with Illburn Records, and is available for download via Wax’s Bandcamp.
Jesus Malverde is titled in homage to the patron saint of drug dealers, outlaws, and bandits, who lived in the early 1900s and was supposedly a thief and criminal. With the rising awareness around the cartel wars, and the emergence in popularity of movies like Blow and Traffic, A-Wax wanted felt the title perfect, not only to represent himself and the music, but as a way to educate listeners on a man he calls, “my favorite saint.” “Everyone can google the news, or read up on the latest kingpin,” remarks Wax, “but the first man to ever represent for the streets was Jesus Malverde.”
A-Wax feels a connection with Jesus Malverde due to his own past – and present; earlier this month; A-Wax was wrongfully arrested and detained while attending a friend’s funeral in Philadelphia – and that past resonates throughout the new album. “I never try to glorify the situation; I stick to the reality of what I grew up in,” notes Wax, pointing to songs like “Her Mistakez,” a track that recalls A-Wax’s tumultuous relationship with his mother. “I talk about going to prison, and joining a gang, and my mother choosing a man over her kids,” explains A-Wax of the song. “I speak from the heart.”
It’s that type of range that continues to prove A-Wax’s growth and progression as an artist, a growth shown not only in A-Wax’s willingness and ability to open up completely as an artist but also in his ability to put together an expansive yet cohesive project, one that can range from the heartfelt emotion of “Her Mistakez” to the unrelenting street bangers like previous singles “Work,” featuring Waka Flocka Flame and Ca$his, and “Make Room (Remix),” which features Gucci Mane and DJ Paul. “My musical selection and tastes are a bit more refined now and I have never been all the way 100% satisfied with an album,” says A-Wax. “With this one, I feel complete”.
A summertime type song emceed by Ostyles and produced by $howtimeAJ both from the crew Ill Individuals. It is more of a feel good type track and has a laid back sample followed by boom bap in your face drums, enjoy.
Skrillex’s OWSLA tapped Bassline progenitor DJ Q to remix the Blood Diamonds/Dominic Lord cut “Barcode”, dropping March 12th.
