Nova aka Jaystack “The Messenger”, Long OverDue


Nova aka Jaystack “The Messenger” was born Jermaine Andre Barrett February 19, 1984 in Highlands Hospital in East Oakland, CA. Nova is an artist who considers himself to have the best of both worlds having the opportunity to live in the suburbs of Foster City, California and grow and become a man in Long Beach, California. Each home molded Nova and gave him positive-diverse attributes that he continues to implement in his life and on his daily journey as a musician while trying to of reach his nirvana.In his music, Nova makes it quite clear his reason for wanting to enter the music industry.

Feeling that the industry is already plagued with enough artists talking about their possessions, Nova decided to stay true to himself. Nova understands that valuables can always be updated. At one point he says Cash Money came out with the trend of having twenty inch rims, years later it was 24s. In the 80′s it was gold donkey ropes, now it’s about platinum jewelry.

Point being: emotions, feelings, and real life situations create classics. That is why people can listen to a Tupac Shakur album until this day. In January, Nova released a mixtape titled “Long OverDue” and can be downloaded on He is slated to release “The Foundation” before the end of March
