Jacob Potison aka Jay Stacks was born in Montreal, Canada on July 29th 1992. Jay Stacks began making beats back in 2006 using an old copy of FL Studio which was bought as a birthday present as a way to keep young Stacks of the streets. He would make old school grime beats and dirty south trap style beats. His major influences at the time were Teddy Music, Lex Luger and Shawty Redd. In 2008 Jay Stacks got his hands on basic music gear and began making music production within FL Studio. His love and passion for Hip Hop and the art of sampling is what keeps his music production and creativity going.

Jay Stacks has sold thousands of beats to hundreds of thousands of upcoming and established artists all over the world. Stacks has topped the charts on soundclick and myflashstore. He is known as one of the most versatile producers coming up in the industry today. He strives to bring quality music production that is artist friendly and designed to inspire and promote creativity in artists at an industry standard.

Fast forward to 2016 Jay Stacks began rapping. Why you may ask? Well I’ll tell you, in 2015 various labels were looking at signing Jay Stacks however due to the high level of competitions most labels told the young producer that he would have to compliment his talents with another craft as song writing, DJing or rapping. He looked at all his options and decided to the the rapping lane simply to due the fact that he had always been rapping but never felt good enough to actually to vocal tracks. Due to continuous support and encouragement from friends Jay Stacks started rapping and the response was great. Since then the young producer has done various shows and plans on continuing this music journey. Jay Stacks since then has record several tracks and freestyles which you can hear on this soundcloud or youtube.
