Stevie Aaron Jordan was born on November 2, 1971, in Utica, New York, to parents Moses Jordan and Penny Daniel. His father, Moses, was a Pentecostal bishop, while his mother was a homemaker.
However, when Stevie J was only eight months old, his mother abandoned him, leaving his father to raise him and his brother, Mike J.
During this time, the family shuffled between Buffalo and Rochester, New York.
As a Pentecostal bishop and gospel singer, Stevie J’s father played a huge role in helping him discover his passion for music. At the young age of 6, Stevie J already expressed interest in joining his dad’s gospel band.
Around this time, he was already beginning to create beats using just pots and pans. His dad encouraged his passion by promising to let him play drums if he got better at the pots and pans.
He eventually joined the band and learned to play the drums as well as other various instruments – saxophone, trumpet, bass, piano, and more.
While in Rochester, he joined a record label owned by Jodeci’s Devante Swing named Swing Mob. There, he played the bass guitar for the R&B group.

Stevie J began his career in the 90s as a member of the “Hitmen,” a group of talented producers who composed tracks for the record label Bad Boy Records. He was discovered and recruited by Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, the founder and owner of Bad Boy Records.
Sure enough, this placed him on the path of fame as he began to work on multiple projects with Sean Combs. One such project was the self-titled debut album of the R&B quartet 112.
Stevie J co-wrote and co-produced their lead single titled “Only You.”
The single featured American Rapper Notorious B-I-G and became a hit spending 39 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
He went on to produce various tracks on Biggie’s second album, B.I.G.: Life After Death. This included songs such as “Mo Money Mo Problems,” “Nasty Boy,” “Notorious Thugs,” “Another,” “You’re Nobody (Till Somebody Kills You),” and “Last Day.”
The album went on to sell over 20 million copies worldwide.
Stevie J also collaborated with Puff Daddy, producing many of the songs in the latter’s first album titled “No Way Out.” One such song was the 1997 tribute song to Notorious B-I-G, “I’ll be Missing You.”
For his work on this song, Stevie J won his first and only Grammy. This makes him one of the richest songwriters in the world, next to the likes of Busta Rhymes, Ted Nugent, Marc Anthony and more.

At the time, he was allegedly married, but it turned out that he was, in fact, not legally married. The show garnered the duo – Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez – another level of fame in the hip-hop community.
It introduced him to a younger generation who may not have been familiar with his past works and achievements.
Another show titled “Stevie J and Joseline: Go Hollywood” premiered on January 25, 2016, on VH1, a series in which he was an executive producer. The plot for the program centers on Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez.

Stevie J also fathered two kids with Carol Antoinette Bennett – son Steven Jordan Jr. and daughter Savannah. Finally, he has a grandson named Zion from his son, Dorian.
Stevie J was granted temporary custody of his daughter Bonnie Bella whom he had with Joseline Hernandez, on account of her display of inappropriate behavior as a mother.
He had in the past openly called out Hernandez for launching a violent attack on him that left him injured in his eyes while she was pregnant. He also accused her of threatening and attempting to attack him.
One time, Hernandez, who had been jealous of the long hours he had been putting in, in the studio with Faith Evans, launched a revenge attack. She went to his house and destroyed Stevie J’s belongings worth over $65,000.
Faith Evans had been Stevie J’s friend for as long as 20 years. However, in 2018, they raised the bar beyond friendship and got married.
Not only had they been friends, but they had also collaborated on multiple projects together before tying the knot.
However, the euphoria of marriage didn’t last long, as in November 2021, Stevie J filed for a divorce. He hinted that Evans was guilty of infidelity as well as domestic abuse.
He claimed she had scratched him all over his face, leading to the singer’s arrest during the summer of 2021. The charges were eventually dropped.
As of February 2023, the divorce proceedings were still underway. However, in May of 2022, Stevie J publicly apologized to Faith Evans, his estranged wife, on Mothers’ Day.
He stated that he was sorry for all the pain he had caused her in their marriage. Despite the apology, Faith Evans went on to comply with the needed requirements for a divorce.
