Jesse Boykins III - The black Apple profile

I first heard dude on one of the PUTMEONIT mixtapes, and was blown away, he has such a smooth voice...In fact it was called 'No On Else' - Beautiful.

So anyway, bit about the man.

His first EP, Dopamine: My Life On My Back EP was released February 14, 2008 and his follow up The Beauty Created LP was released November 25, 2008 through NomaDic MuSic, a partnership between him and long time friend and New York Giants wide receiver Sinorice Moss.
