Maxton, NC gave birth to many things, one of them being, the 25 year old MC born Jason Stanley on March 28, 1981. The world will come to know him as Da Public's Eye. This small town native like many artists began his musical career in the church. Da Public's Eye has been in the doing music for over ten years, but he has been around it all of his life. His mother was in a local group that appeared on American Band Stand in 1972 and his uncle is the late legendary Jazz Player Johnny Organ of Philadelphia, PA. After making some career transitions, Jason changed his name from J –Roc to Da Public’s Eye. “Sometimes the world around you changes, so you have to change with it. I am a survivor, for real, all the things that go wrong or make my life hard, just give me the fuel to keep going.”
His first single The Maxton Anthem won the battle of the beat on Foxy 99 in Fayetteville, NC. Since then he has held supreme reign in the “Independent Spotlight”, almost every Sunday thereafter. You can find him on any given day in the studio brainstorming and laying down tracks. He has performed at several venues around the NC area including , but not limited to Bennett College For Women, Club 550, Sunray Entertainment's 1st Annual Block Party and on one of his many trips home completing community service he performs annually at the Making a Change Foundations Benefit. The humble MC always takes time out to promote his brother's Independent Record Label Northstar Productions, based out of Maxton, NC. Northstar Production has always played a major role in his life and he will “always show them love.”
Da Public’s Eye currently has 2 mixed CD’s the first one is I’m Bout My Bizne$$, which created a major buzz up and down the east coast. The mix CD features guest appearance by several up and coming artist out of NC, such as Young Blaze, Scalez, Deja Bluu, Mic God and former Epic recording artist JB. His most recent project is his self titled Mix CD, Da Public’s Eye.
This mix CD shows his unprecedented capability of jumping in the industry feet first. The mix CD is a plethora of personalities, from pimp mode to spirituality. He teams up with several of the artist from his previous CD, in addition to Blaque Byrd/Twinkle Star, Ceazar Coleone, and P- Wonda from Othaz Records. There are also guest appearances by Guru from CrackTrackz Officials, Waleed Coyote (102 Jamz), Da Angry Dude and Brandon D from Knaps Crew. He also works alongside super producer 2480 out of Atlanta, GA. Marketing is not an issue for Da Public's Eye, he already knows who is audience is, women and the youth. So his strategy is find your notch and stick with, “Don't fix what isn't broke.”
The ability to follow your dreams and be determined to make them a reality is what separates the artist from the superstars. Da Public’s Eye embodies the definition of grinding to super stardom, although he is from a small town it doesn’t leave him with a lack of things to say. “Tough times don’t last, Tough people do” is the motto and he “Wants the whole world to say MAXTON!” Unbeknownst to the industry the game will never be the same.
