Set out to be consistent, credible and courageous, Derrick “D.Jax” Jackson, releases inspirational, faith-based music with the goal of influencing a generation. The industry may define him as an Urban Inspirational Hip-Hop artist, but D.Jax refuses to allow anyone to define his art. In fact, he speaks of a time where he, and a few aspiring emcees, locked themselves in the studio for weeks to shield their creativity from what was happening in the mainstream. To this day, D.Jax still isolates himself from what’s popular or relevant in the industry, for a period of time, to fuel the creative process. The Prince George’s County, Maryland born lyricist gains inspiration from his very eclectic musical preferences. “I love music that inspires me to create, to act, or to change.” As you experience his art for the first time, you can’t help but notice the versatility in the music he chooses, mixed with the confident delivery of a Hip-Hop veteran.
