Biography

Alessandro Aleotti, known as J-Ax, (born 5 August 1972 in Milan, Italy) is an Italian singer, former singer in the rap group Articolo 31 with his DJ Vito Luca Perrini (DJ Jad). He is the brother of Weedo. On 6 May 2010, he created the band 'Due di picche' with Neffa.

From 1990 to 2005, J-Ax (abbreviation of Joker Alex) was part of the famous and popular Italian rap group Articolo 31 which he founded with Vito Luca Perrini, AKA "DJ Jad". In 2014 he became a judge on the show The Voice of Italy.

In 2006 J-Ax released his first solo album, Di sana pianta. This album, which was very pop oriented, spawned no fewer than six singles: S.N.O.B., Tua mamma, Ti amo o ti ammazzo, Acqua nella scuola, Piccoli per sempre and Escono i pazzi. The single Ti amo o ti ammazzo was also translated and released in Spanish as Te amo o te mato. This album continued themes used by Articolo 31, such as knowing love (Ti amo o ti ammazzo), criticising society, (S.N.O.B., Tua mamma) and the protection of immigrants (Escono i pazzi, Fumo ancora). In 2007 he teamed up with The Styles to release the single Più Stile, which won at the MTV Europe Music Awards for "Best Italian Act". In the same year, he released material with some of "Spaghetti Funk", a crew which he created at the same time as Articolo 31 in the 90s with Gemelli DiVersi, Space One, Raptuz TDK (a writer) and a lot of other singers that now aren't in the crew. Later the album Di sana pianta he released the song S.N.O.B. reloaded with Space One, Gue Pequeno, Jake La Furia, Marracash, Don Joe and Fabio B. In 2007, he also participated in MTV Day with DJ Jad and reformed their old group for a day.

J-Ax did not release an album in 2007, although he had many projects, which continued into 2008. He sang on Amici un cazzo by Space One with Gemelli Diversi, Come noi by Pino Scotto and Fattore wow with Marracash and Gue Pequeno. He also wrote three songs in that year: Uno di noi, a thank you to his fans, Limonare al multisala, for the soundtrack of the film Ti stramo and I vecchietti fanno o, the first single of his next album.
In 2011, J-Ax appeared on the remix of Kasabian's single "Man of Simple Pleasures".

At the beginning of 2009 J-Ax launched a project: to release two CDs in the year. The first, Rap N'Roll was released at the end of January. As well as I vecchietti fanno oh, he released 3 singles: Aumentaci le dosi, 3 paperelle and Rap N'Roll. Other artists worked with him on the album: Space One, DJ Zak, Gue Pequeno, Irene Viboras, Fabio B and Guido Style, with whom he has worked since Più Stile. In the summer of 2009 he released his third CD as a solo artist, Deca dance. J-Ax paid homage to house music with this album with the single Deca Dance as well as more traditional singles with Come un sasso and Vendesi idolo. He also shows his sense of humour on I love paranoia, and Come un sasso. Pino Daniele, Marracash, Grido and Jovanotti took part in the album as well as another partnership with The Styles.
