Jarvis Mills (born September 11, 1983), better known by his stage name Jae Millz, is an American rapper from Harlem, New York, who is signed to Lil Wayne's record label Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records. His debut major label studio album, titled Nothing Is Promised is scheduled for a 2013 release. Jae is known for participating in and winning a number of rap battles with Harlem rappers, such as Larsiny, 40 Cal. and JR Writer among others.
Jae was born in Harlem, New York. He started writing lyrics while at junior high school. He followed his love for art and went to the New York High School for Cartoon and Fashion Architecture.
Jae grew to local fame by winning hip hop battles and releasing a number of mixtapes. In 2003, he released his debut single "No, No, No", which received radio play and peaked at #89 at the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. After the success of the song, Jae was offered a record deal with Warner Bros. Records. However, due to creative differences, Millz left the label, without having an album released. Soon after that he signed with Universal Records. Eventually, he left Universal, too, due to the lack of promotion, as the label was giving priority to other artists.
On December 21, 2009, Jae's collaboration album with Young Money "We Are Young Money" was released. Millz was featured on 8 of the songs, including the singles "Every Girl" and "BedRock". The album landed at #9 on the Billboard 200, selling 142,000 copies in its first week, and was later certified gold by the RIAA.
Jae's debut album "Nothing Is Promised" is currently scheduled for a 2013 release. In an interview with BBC Radio 1's Tim Westwood, Millz explained that the title refers to his health problems – "The title come from [me] having two seizures in the previous year. I had them in my sleep. It's like you wake up and you don’t know what happened." The first single from the album, called "Forever Winning", was released in July 2011 and features fellow Young Money rapper Lil Wayne. His newest mixtape Dead Presidents 2 was released on February 4, 2013. It got over 18,000 downloads in the first day of its release on the popular mixtape site DatPiff.
On April 19, 2013, Millz released his 20th official mixtape Property Of Potentness 2, to celebrate 4/20. The tape features guest performances by Birdman, Gucci Mane and Smoke DZA, among others, and production from Harry Fraud, LoudxPack and Millz himself.
In April 2010, Millz was arrested in New Jersey, while on his way to XXL's 2010 Freshman concert, where he was supposed to perform with rappers Cam'ron and Vado. He was detained for driving without a license.
