The rookie of the year!

Featured artist: Jay Saucy – The rookie of the year!

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Jay Saucy from Long Island City to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Jay Saucy! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Jay Saucy: I did a freestyle video & uploaded it on my Facebook in late June. From there I was like “why not keep it going?” I pushed myself onward and officially became an artist in August. I mostly became an artist to show the doubters wrong and make a name for myself!

Don’t try and fit yourself into music but instead let it fit into you!

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I try to perform at parties when I can and I currently have a live performance December 6th at Blackthorn 51.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Some shit you can’t hide sometimes
All my demons come alive at night
I live in the shade, while you hide in the light

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I am currently working on a EP “Voices In The Attic” that I want to release in late December. I then want to realize another project in either the spring of 2019 or the summer of 2019.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Currently I would not because I feel a major label would try to control all of my earnings & I need all my funds! I also enjoy “being my own boss” & having free will of what I want to do and how I want to do it. In the future I might consider signing with a major label. Although a lot of pros with signing to a major label would be more mainstream push of your music & exposure, as well as a professional team that knows what their doing & a lot more studio time. However, some cons would be the artist getting less money from what they create, being put behind the scenes a bit while a bigger name artist on the label is getting all recourses dumped into them and not having your own free will but instead following what management and the label tell you to do.

Any last words?

Shoutouts to Peso Mills, Rahmeezy, Kero Millions, Jaybucks. Big shoutouts to the whole Queens, New York & any young artists on they grind. Queens get the money!
