Born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio until the young age of 18. Jay Dix aka M dot Jones has always carried a passion for music close in his heart. He was exposed early on to music through his mother. It’s was bacon, eggs, grits and Luther Vandross every morning in his home growning up. She played all the great R&B hits giving him the perfect understanding of what real music should be.
After graduating high school Jay moved to Pittsburgh, Pa to further his education. After receiving two degrees M dot Jones set his sites on a bigger goal...RAP MUSIC. Starting up 1403 Entertainment in 2006 the self-described super fan got tired of all the weak music being put out by these so-called hiphop artists and decided to pick the mic up...enter JAY DIX aka M dot JONES.
Jay Dix began preforming at local parties, local TV shows and underground hiphop spots all around the 412 and 330 in 2006. Trying to build a local buzz he put together a 17 track mixtape "You N G’s Town the Mixtape" in 2007 and hit the streets. Recorded at Well Rounded Studio in Youngstown, Ohio and engineered by Kenny Ali. Jay Dix single-handily gave out 1500 copies of his mixtape "You N G’s Town the Mixtape" between Pittsburgh,PA- Youngstown,OH- Warren, OH- Chicago, IL- Niagara Falls, NY and Baltimore,MD. Jay Dix’s unique style, player swagger and catchy rhymes soon set him aside from your average MC. Writing about real life situations he speaks about his own personal life experiences through HipHop.
Jay Dix dropped his debut street album "Mahogany Jones, Over A Trillion Served" in 2008. With most of the production duty handled by Neisa Beats and recorded mainly at Yo Momz House Studio, engineered by Emmai Alaquiva. Jay Dix feels it’s his time to really shine with his debut single "Sneaker Pimpin" from this CD. He’s sure his songs "Beat Knockin(rx) ft. Keygan Bryant" and the R&B smash hit "Respect my Swag ft Almond Joy" (106.7 WAMO, Battle of the Beats 3 week winner!!) will have heads bopping from Maine to Spain.
At the start of 09' Jay Dix hit the streets hard again with his next single "Ice'd Up (rx) ft. Almond Joy". But his next single "I'm the Bomb" produced by Keygan Bryant really got heads turning. Both of these songs were featured on his latest mixtape "The Monkey's Nest" released the summer of 2009. This orginal and suprisingly creative mixtape was released to good reviews through out Pittsburgh, Northeast Ohio and the internet. Recorded at Twisted Vision Studio and engineered by Pgh "Producer of the Year" Mysterious. This mixtape was filled with hot freestyle, raw & creative rhymes.
Jay Dix started to prep his debut Lp "Mahogany the Chef" for a spring 2010 release. With the first singles being "Extraordinary Swag" & "Gangsta Pop ft. Almond Joy" followed by "Fresh 2 DEF" & "The Essence" on deck. Jay Dix knows he has what it takes to compete in this stale Hiphop market
Following that project Jay Dix put together a new 2011 mixtape worth of material called "THE FIX" for the fans to digest before he drops in last and final album...
"THE BIRTH of M DOT" in the 1st quarter of 2013, with the lead off single being "CELEBRATE ft. SMOOVE" & Pimpin is BACK ft. Miss Money on DECK!! .....Jay Dix saved the best for last! THE BIRTH of M DOT album will be a classic!!!!!
