How has Hip Hop change in theDirty South“?

Jay Mall: I feel Hip Hop is more dance & less Rap right now.  The dance songs are taking over which is cool but they don’t last long because it’s always a new dance coming out. You can almost mumble on a song now as long as you rhyming and make it catchy.

 I love your clothing lineMade In Mississippi“. Tell us more about your line and where we can find it.
Jay Mall: Thank you! Well, Made In Mississippi is something I came up with a few years ago but it was just for the title of a mix-tape that I was working on at the time which ended up being pushed back but the name stuck around so I decided to do something with it and I dropped the Mix-tape on Live Mix-tapes last year which was hosted by DJ Break Em Off (he has also worked with Big Krit).  A few months later I came up with the idea of bringing some other Mississippi artist together for a song collaboration.  The project ended up featuring 11 other artists and I name the song “Made In Mississippi” which also produced a video and gained exposure from WXVT News, Bolivar Commercial Newspaper, The Hype Magazine, &  Right after that I started to sell the “Made In Mississippi” t-shirts and the support has been incredible.  Since then I have added sweaters, hoodies, & jogger sets for men, women & kids.  To purchase you can visit, Follow on Instagram @JayMall4 ,  or Twitter @JAYMALL
