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.


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.

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.


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.
