Q&A WITH MONEY THIRSTY JAY

Introduce yourself. Tell us where you are from and what first interested you in the entertainment industry?

I am Money Thirsty Jay and I am from New Orleans, Louisiana. My overall love of music is what interested me in becoming an artist.

Who or what inspires you to create?

I’m inspired to create by a combination of my life and everything that is happening in the world right now.

How would you describe your sound?

My sound is a blend of smooth, melodic bars with a dose of savagery.

THE CREATIVE PROCESS

Tell us about your creative process. What are your go-to’s for a session?

No matter if I’m freestyling or writing, I always follow how I’m feeling that particular day. The track can hit my ears and I will speak on what my heart tells me.

What artists would you like to collaborate with?

Lil’ Wayne & Curren$y are a few of the artists that I would love to work with.

Being challenged in life is inevitable. Being defeated is optional. Ignite your hustle & make it happen.

LET’S SHIFT GEARS

What’s a skill/talent that you possess that no one knows about?

A lot of people wouldn’t know it, but I’m cold when it comes to basketball!

If not for music, where would you be in life right now?

More than likely if not for music I’d definitely be a blogger right now.

What is the best piece of advice you have received?

Success is measured not by the position one has reached in life, but by the obstacles which you had to overcome while trying to succeed.

WRAPPING IT UP

So what’s next for you? Where will we see you in the next five years?

I will continue to grow as an artist and further my brand. In five years I want my fanbase to expand not just through the south, but nationwide.

If there was one thing that you would change about the industry, what would that be?

All bad music deals should be illegal!

How can we stay tapped in? Let us know where we can follow you on social media?

You can follow me on all social media platforms at Money Thirsty Jay.

Check out the single “WYA” From Money Thirsty Jay down below and let us know in the comments what you think.

#SaturdaySpotlight Featuring Trajik | @big_trajik

Trajik

MEET TRAJIK

TRAJIK is an Indianapolis artist who’s a household name in the Hip-Hop landscape. The Traptown MC has a career that spans over a decade and includes milestones that most artists dream about. Always standing on business, Trajik delivers with gritty, impactful lyrics that highlight his well-documented rise to fame.

From gracing the cover of The Indianapolis Star as the face of Hip-Hop to appearing in hit FOX TV shows like Empire & Proven Innocent, Big Trajik has what it takes to break the glass ceiling.

TRAJIK-TO KILL A GOAT

Trajik

Trajik’s latest release To Kill A Goat is ten tracks of his raw and uncut delivery. He links up with Naptown’s own Skypp for the single “My Truth” and Parris Ladame on “Me and My Bitch” that further cement the notion of talent in Indy.

The first single on the album “Goated” is where Trajik turns his thoughts into poetry. He spits, “cuz I was devoted/wise words been quoted/I took my pain an turned it into poetry/ready for the world ain’t no hoe in me/they act nonchalant but they notice me”

Check out the official video for “Goated” down below. To Kill A Goat is available now on all music streaming platforms.

EDITOR’S TAKE

Trajik is not only a veteran in the game, but also a dope friend. We’re both native to the east side of Nap and I have covered his career since the beginning of mine. I remember our first sit-down interview years ago while writing for Scoop The Entertainment Source magazine. He would then go on to grace our pages years later.

Trajik

I reflect back to what I asked him in that interview about his future. No joke, he spoke on doing more than just rap. He had aspirations to become an actor, brand ambassador, etc… and it’s dope to see all of that come full circle!

Stay locked in with Trajik via social media on Instagram @big_trajik and give a listed to “To Kill A Goat” TODAY!!
