One of Diddy's Hitmen, a producer and songwriter partly responsible for major hits like "Honey" and "Mo Money, Mo Problems."
Due to his role in the Hitmen -- a behind-the-scenes collective of songwriters and producers who helped build Diddy's Bad Boy empire -- Stevie J. (Steven A. Jordan, born in Buffalo, New York) was one of the most significant (and most overlooked) architects of contemporary R&B and pop-rap during the late '90s and early 2000s. His work can be heard in dozens of tracks and remixes, including hits such as Mariah Carey's "Honey," the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Mo Money, Mo Problems," and Puff Daddy & the Family's "I'll Be Missing You." During the 2000s and 2010s, he wasn't nearly as active, but in 2012, he was more visible than ever as a cast member of the VH1 reality series Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta. "DNA," a collaboration with Snoop Dogg, was released on the program's soundtrack in 2014.
