Jay “IDOL” Braaks is a Westland Michigan born, Windsor Ontario raised hip hop artist. He Began rapping at the young age of 12, being highly influenced by artists like Jay-Z, Nas, Tupac, and Biggie. At this time, Braaks only freestyled and used rap as an alternate to writing journals, explaining his everyday life through writing short verses. In his highschool years, Jay found himself  writing full songs, performing at small venues and battle rapping on a regular basis.

In 2007, at the age of 21, he released his first mixtape entitled “Braak N Entry” which received rave reviews from the streets alone. Off the success from the mixtape, Jay performed at countless events in Windsor, ranging from parties to clubs and high schools. Building his resume, he spent the next couple of years concentrating on releasing an endless amount of songs to the internet, performing and ghostwriting for R&B and hip hop artists, dedicated to keep a solid buzz growing.

In April 2010, with a well crafted and deep arsenal of music, Braaks released his second mixtape titled “Tha Addiction” available for free download at http://www.datpiff.com/Jay_Braaks_Tha_Addiction.m116511.html which has been now glorified as being a certified “classic mixtape” from many listeners and blog sites.

Now, at 25, Jay Braaks continues to work hard and has just released his latest video “On My Own” available to view on Youtube, and is off his next mixtape titled “A Proud Outcast” which is scheduled for a late October release.
