Born in 1991, to a young philology student from Tajikistan and a father who immigrated to the then USSR from Siberia, Julian “Jay” Uebe came to see the light of day in Qurghonteppa, Tajikistan, on August 5th. The love for words and the search for meaning seem embedded into his genes. Fleeing a civil war, the young family found themselves as refugees in Germany by 1993. The bilingual upbringing in Russian and German would soon be followed by additionally learning English in school by age 9 and French by age 12. By then, Jay started opening the gates to his musical career by writing poetry. Influenced by his best friend, a native US-citizen, he developped a sparking interest in Hip-Hop and Rap Music and by age 15, the first raps where written down. After finishing school, Jay proceeded to pick up American Studies and Politics at the University of Erlangen/Nuremberg.
