The visual is a perfect compliment to the overall theme of the track. Guru’s timeless flow coupled with the lyrical prowess of Cole is like going back in time to where family and loyalty meant something in Hip-Hop.

The #SaturdaySpotlight is a device utilized by both TenthLetterMedia and Straight Official Magazine to capture and bring you the lifestyle and culture of Hip-Hop. We shine our collective light upon the Circle City and showcase emerging artists throughout the back roads of Nap.

Naptown’s cultivators of Hip-Hop are NOT gender specific. The landscape also includes a variety of female artists looking to stake claim in a realm dominated by their male counterparts.

JAY HAYES is a young and energetic femcee from the westside of the Circle City. Her quick delivery and style of flow are skills that are getting her noticed amidst the crowd of her peers. Jay is slated to release a mixtape titled Jayway this year and the single “Paranoid” will be a feature single from that release, featuring production from Frezhduzit.

Check out the dope visual for “Paranoid” shot by Quanny foo down below and follow Jay Hayes on both IG & Twitter. Stay tuned to Apple and Spotify for the Jayway release and TLM & SO Mag for your issue of the lifestyle and culture of Hip-Hop! #DueSeason #GetSOM
