Jay Mall “Made In Mississippi“
Grinders, I am happy to feature one of Mississippi’s outstanding Hip Hop Artists, Jay Mall. His interview is heartfelt…the love for his State shows in every words. “Many people look over Mississippi, but did you know what’s on the bottom is holding everyone else up”.
Mississippi is a State rich in History but also rich in talent. Check out my interview with Jay Mall “Made In Mississippi“.
Jay Mall: Well, I got started in music by making beats then I was told I should try to rap over some of my own beats so I tried it and ever since I’ve been in love with coming up with creative word play.
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.
Jay Mall: It’s important to Rep Mississippi because that’s where I’m from and sometimes it’s a real challenge to make it from here and I’ve always felt I could beat the odds. Although I feel that the support from my State could be greater, I really appreciate the ones who do support my music, events, & brand. (Made In Mississippi)
Jay Mall: If people would only pay more attention to what the state has to say, we could be just as big as any other state talent wise. Some of the most successful people are from Mississippi.
