M up-and-coming Queensbridge rapper, JAY ROZAY. For some new artists it takes many years to catch fire in the streets, but not this guy. In less than 2 years his collection of videos on YouTube have amassed more than 400,000 views!
JAY has always loved music, especially Hip-Hop. He started spitting rhymes at only 13 years old and recorded his first song at a studio across the water on Roosevelt Island in 2013.
When asked to describe his exclusive sound, JAY replied, "My sound is hyper, it's immaculate." After watching the videos for tracks like "Blood Money" and "NH2" featuring Kev Dollaz, Paparattzi and Ace Numba Five, I strongly agree. His energy is amazing!
"My music sets itself apart simply because everyone is trying to be like somebody else...I'm just being me. I have my own vision and my own story to tell, a story that will touch the people who listen to me."
Akin to Hip-Hop God and fellow QueensBridge rapper, NAS, he is a young man with exceptional bars and wisdom well beyond his years.
JAY's lyrics express the joy, passion and pains of life and how he perseveres. His ability to bring stories to life with his pen is a welcome change from the redundancy we often hear.
"I'm in a different position, so I can provide a different type of motivation to the youth, you feel me? Kids who are in the same situation as me, kids who don't think they can make it...I will be the one to show them that they can achieve great things." (No wonder Meek Mill is his favorite emcee.)
When he's not in the studio working on new music, you can catch JAY listening to underground rappers KEV DOLLAZ, MALACHI GMN, KeddyStackin and KyHound or more popular acts such as Dave East and NBA YoungBoy.
JAY ROZAY is the new wave! This talented young emcee is quickly raising the standard in this highly competitive rap game.
As he continues to grind out hits and build up his YouTube catalogue, the world (lovers and haters alike) eagerly await his upcoming EP "Who Is You", slated to drop in early 2019.
I can't wait to hear this album! Queens, we got another one.
