Stephen “Static/Major” Garrett was born on November 11, 1974 in Louisville K.Y, a place he was proud to call home. He was a singer songwriter and record producer. Static gained posthumous fame for appearing on Lil Wayne's 2008 album “Tha Carter 3” for the song “Lollipop”. He made his breakthrough working with singer Ginuwine. Static wrote the song “Pony” which became a major hit and a milestone in both Static’s and producer Timbaland’s career. He was also a member of the R&B Trio Playa who’s mostly known for their hit single “Cheers 2 U”.

For well over a decade Static has been an influential factor in the music industry and continues to have an impact with his musical works. His play on words, harmonizing melodies and keen ear for music lead to the release of some of the industry’s greatest hits such as Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat”, Ginuwine’s “Pony” and “So Anxious”, and Lil Wayne’s world-renowned “Lollipop”. His profile includes work with artists such as Aaliyah, Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Christina Aguilera, Drake, Rihanna, Nas, Jamie Foxx, Al Green and countless other well-known artist.

Static passed at the height of his career on February 25,2008, due to medical negligence, bringing his life’s work and passion for music to a standstill.
