Hailing from Alexandria, Virginia's Montgomery St. 900 Block, 16 year old emcee Yung Jay is determined to make a better life for him and his family by vocalizing the trials and tribulations of growing up in the poverty stricken area through the outlet of music. He began rapping at the early age of 7 but started to seriously pursue a career as a recording artist at the age of 12. " Keep Hustling " his first solo effort which he jokingly states " he will never let anyone hear again..." inspired him to keep working on his craft and develop his style. A few years later he followed up with his freshman compilation This Is Just A Mixtape. Due to some impressive rhyme scheme's, well thought out concepts, and the breakout track, a remix to MMG 's Meek Mills " Realest You Ever Seen ", Jay quickly started buzzing in the DMV area ; however it was his " Dead Presidents " free-verse of the Jay-Z classic, that officially catapulted him into the limelight. When the video landed on the popular hip-hop culture blog The Red Tag Society , critics and fans alike agreed the kid had something the industry has been missing for a while, realism. Last month he officially went under the management of Media Personality Quinelle Holder. With his debut EP entitled : Static Talk scheduled to drop this winter, a follow on twitter from The Based God Lil' B as a gesture of support, and a new manager the sky is the limit for the old soled adolescent.
