Moving around the East Coast before finally landing in ATL, rapper Jay5 began developing his sound while living in Virginia and subsequently Brooklyn, but perfected his craft and his flow in the South.
Adopting the Blood’s symbolic 5 to his name, Jay5 has close ties to Blood gang and street culture after being forced into a life on the streets at an early age.
But Jay5‘s music is much more than just trap music infused with gang culture, he’s really a tied into some of the most popular artists in Hip-Hop today.
“I really didn’t want to rap when I got out of prison, but I used to be up at QC with the Migos where everyone else was rapping so it just came naturally,” Jay5 explained.
These are Vibes From The Abyss as Jay5 continues to bring attention to C5R movement that’s right on the cusp of mainstream recognition as Jay5 preps for his 5:55 AM project due out May 5th.
Now after a big interview with DJ Smallz and some good press in Elevator Mag, this ATL up-start is proving that bit by bit momentum can be built, one site and one fan at a time.
“I’m going to be consistent this Summer. It’s all going to be pre-meditated and planned out and its going to be set up so that people know I’m not some average street rapper. Everything has to be different.
