The grime, the grind, and the glory. Thats what best describes mixtape wunderkind Superstar Jay. The Jamaica, Queens native was a deejaying prodigy, studying under the likes of legendary Ike Love and industry veteran DJ CLUE at the age of twelve, and spinning at every opportunity possible. Growing up in the get or bet gotten era in Queens, the streets only allowed you to excel at ballin, music, or the hustle game so Jay took his passion for music and carefully honed his skills while concurrently taking it to the hoops in the streets as a youth. The intensity he had for music he applied as a ballplayer and he rode that vehicle to Buffalo, NY where he garnered a basketball scholarship for three years. But after three years the turntables began calling and Superstar Jay took his natural ability and it unleashed it on the upstate NY town. From rocking parties, to concerts and producing a number-one rated show, The Midnight Run Mixtape Show on WBNY 93.1 Jays passion for the rap game became a viable career. After holding down Buffalo Jay came back to New York City to get dance with the big dogs. With his talent and his ambition as his only assets in the game, Superstar Jays mixtapes attracted attention and respect amongst true rap fans sans the politics and grime of the game. Since his emergence in New York City, he has displayed that putting in the work is the reason for his emergence as one of the best new deejays out and why everyone from Philly to Germany, China and back has checked for any one of his 40 mixtapes. With exclusives from heavyweights 50-Cent, Lloyd Banks, Fab, Yayo and Nore,NBA Star Lamar Odom Jim Jones and selling 70,000 plus of his mix cdz alongside veterans Envy, Clue, Whoo Kid its no mistaking that this is a talent to check for.
