Jared Newman (born April 4, 1990), better known by his stage name J-Class, is an American musician. Raised in Los Angeles, Newman began making beats at the age of thirteen and hasn’t stopped since. His first released mixtape, Vol. 1, is a blend of old folk rock and gritty hip hop beats.
After now living in New York, J-Class has shifted his style in new directions also focusing on the art of rapping and MCing. While most rappers get on stage and rap over previously recorded beats, Jared is able to freestyle and keep the crowd engaged with his MCing skills while also using his years of remixing and mashup making to keep the crowd alive and interested.
