CONSCIOUS RAP BY UPCOMING TALENT
Jay-Way raps about more than sex, drugs and bling: he wants to make his texts conscious, and he brings his inspirational messages through layered storytelling. His stay in New York influenced his work. There is where he developed an honest, poetic and direct style that appeals to younger generations, as well as older hip-hop fans. He was the support act for artists like KRS One, Obie Trice and Rejjie Snow. His song “Happen Dappen” was streamed more than 2 million times. At Roots Open Air he performs with a band which incorporates guitar, keys and vocoder.
