UK rapper Jay-D drops fine track about his life journey on the reflective single that shows us 2020 in a mirror, ‘Lost My Way‘.
Jack Marriott aka Jay-D fell in love with all things Hip Hop at the age of six, after hearing JAY Z’s Reasonable Doubt album. A fine release indeed and probably one of the top 10 albums of all time.
When Jay was eight he would spend hours on his DJ software, making track after track from the various loops it had to offer. He also started rapping at a young age but always behind closed doors. It was only after the death of his Nan that he decided to record some tracks and, once his confidence grew, he dropped his first single, ‘Monster‘, online. The track has been well received, even high up in the hip hop world with Lupe Fiasco collaborator Bishop G saying he likes Jack’s flow. In under a year his tracks have received over 2500 plays on Soundcloud. In the future he plans to do a Music Technology Level 3 course and then go on to study at university.
This is an emcee with big dreams and he really pushes himself. So often these days, younger rappers expect fame so quickly without really working for it and thus give up quickly, blaming someone else. This artist however has an old school mind and makes music for the right reasons. He loves the music. The way it should be.
‘Lost My Way‘ from UK emcee Jay-D is an underground gem that is so exciting to listen to, flow-wise and the beat is quality. The subject is a bit worrying however this shows 2020. We are all a bit lost and need guidance.
