JayUncut is ready for the new year and confirmed that he is working on a project of his own! Get to know more about Jay Uncut and what he has in store for 2021 down below.
What inspired your producer name? And where did you get the name from?
Like most of us from 2009-11 I was a twitter troll. I would roast ppl on twitter and go viral with jokes. I changed my name from JMuzik to JayUncut bc I was raw and unfiltered. With the followers I gained from twitter I would find artists to work with. Rest was history.
What is YOUR genre?
My favorite genre is R&B. I grew up in church so I was around melodies and harmonies, riffs and runs, chords and transitions all my life.
How would you describe your sound/style?
Young MA said I had a very solid yet simple sound. Very easy to rap/sing to
When did you start doing music? And when did you start taking it seriously?
I was always playing music all my life but I started taking it serious once I met Regina Belle 15 years ago. She gave me an opportunity and I learned I could make money producing music.
Why music? Describe your passion.
My dad. He was a musician and could play all instruments. I was born into music. I grew to love music from a toddler playing drums on my mamas furniture. Then they finally bought me a little drum set. I’d do school competitions and all. Then to playing in church to learning keys to music directing bands. Then when I found out I could make money too? I went harder.
In your opinion, what makes you stand out from other/current producers out there?
I have a love for independent artists. They say I have the most organized beat pack in the industry. And I usually give it away. Like literally send the link to any body who wants it. Of course business is handled once you record to any beats but I try to stay assessable to artists who are trying to come up.
What are you currently working on?
The next level awaits. Trust more is on the way. I’m dropping a tape myself with different artists I’ve discovered and worked with.
What message do you want to leave the audience with when reading the article?
This music thing is a journey. You need to have not only diligence and a strong work ethic but most importantly patience. Keep networking and stay hungry not greedy. Chase the work not the money. Money will then chase you.
