And Sucio Smash [of Squeeze Radio] said to me if it wasn't for Chris, he would've never tried to get his own label. He said the reason why he got it is because he wanted people to hear Binkis. He wanted people to hear Jax.
So, I mean, there's a lot of people that Chris has influenced and had an impact on. Chris was a good dude. Not only was he a great rapper and MC, he was a great friend to a lot of people.
After purchasing a home in East Point, and moving in together in August 2008, Lisa got a close-up look at how deep Jax's love for making music went.
Our last, you could say, argument was over music. Because Chris was working on like three mixtapes at the very moment and we'd just walked into the house, and he was on the computer and I was like, "What'chu doin?"
He said, "Yo, I sent Ill this e-mail to see if he can loop up this particular song."
And I said, "Chris, what is this for?"
"Um, this is for this mixtape."
And I said, "Well, what about the other mixtape."
"I'm still working on that."
And I was like, "Chris, you have made like 158 songs in two hours. Nobody has heard none of these songs." And of course me being who I am, I don't do music so my thing was, if I'm going to make 10 songs, people are going to hear these 10 songs and I'm going to chill.
But Chris kept making songs, kept making songs, kept making songs. And I was like, "Dude, why do you keep making songs." I said, "Nobody's hearing 'em."
I said, "Yo, you really need to make some money off it."
And people who know him know he gave me this look like, "Girl, shut up." I mean, that's how he looked at me, like "Shut up."
And he said, "Yo, I do this because I love it. It's not about the money. It's not about me driving a car or whatever. It's because I love it."
And he loved it. That to him was his release. When he wanted to get away from everything, he'd go in the room, shut the door, play his iPod and he'd just start writing.
He'd be on our back porch at night with the little citronella candle burning, writing. And I'd come in there, I used to bother him; but then I came to the realization that that's his time. So that was like his peace.
While no one knows exactly how much unreleased music Jax has altogether, Lisa plans to work with Flux, Killa Kalm and DJ Mafioso of Binkis Recs, as well as Jax's mother, to determine how they will move forward with his catalog.
One of his names was Jax the Catalog, so I could imagine how much stuff this young man's got. I mean, just the stuff I heard just in the four or five years that we were together was ridiculous. People used to send him beats, and he would go ahead and do a song and you'd never hear it. Then he would bring it back up and I'd be like, "Yo, when did you record this?"
And he'd go, "Four years ago." So, it's a lot of stuff that he has done that people have not heard.
Since he's not here I'm definitely going to take over, because I want to protect him. I want to protect Binkis, I want to protect everything that these young men have done in the past 10 or 11 years that they've been together. So I definitely want to take over. And so I've talked to a couple of people that I know that will help me out as far as protecting them.
Chris' mother, she's an entrepreneur so she has my back in the situation. I know a lot of people in Atlanta have my back. So I definitely want to protect mainly Chris, but definitely protect Flux and Killa [Kalm] and DJ Mafioso. I want to protect them.
Though the autopsy report from the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office concluded that Jax died from natural causes due to hypertension, Lisa and the rest of his family still don't understand why he died so suddenly. They're awaiting further information.
We don't know what happened to him. And I guess that's one thing I really want to clear up – it wasn't a heart attack, it wasn't a stroke, it wasn't cardiac arrest.
The answer they gave me is the craziest answer I've ever heard in my life, which is hypertension. And so, that's why I'm still saying I really don't know what happened to him.
ooooohhhh, I'm so excited!! I can't wait to see them together!
come on man you know you got a bromance. you probably still rock that OutKast…
Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
