Baltimore native, Jay Wyse, is a young up and coming artist with a unique sound. In an era where “everybody and their mother raps”, it’s important to shine light on those like Wyse…artist who showcase skill and a respect for their craft. He let me pick his brain for a quick second to talk about his new project “Wyse Thoughts Wise Journey 2″.
DropaJewel: Who is Jay Wyse? How would you describe yourself as an artist?
Jay Wyse: Jay Wyse is a young artist (early 20′s) who just looks to make good music & genuinely touch people with it. Average guy, raised in east Baltimore, somebody the people can relate to.
DropaJewel: What inspired Wyse Thoughts Wis Journey 2 and how does it differ from volume one?
Jay Wyse: WTWJ2 just felt right, it wasn’t hard to come by or hard to create. The major difference between volume 1 & volume 2 is the growth and progression in the music itself (lyrical abilities, more cleaned up flow, etc) down to the quality of the recording.
DropaJewel: Where can fans find more information and music from you? Any upcoming shows?
Jay Wyse: Fans/Supporters of Wyse can find music updates, biography, etc on jaywyse.com. The next performance will actually be at the release of WTWJ2, don’t miss out!
