After starting the year off with a new single, Harlem’s, Jay Pres, has been steady on his music grind. The rapper/producer/audio engineer – and former college b-ball player – who hails from Harlem, is a familiar name & face in the Manhattan neighborhood. Associated with the likes of Teyana Taylor, Dave East, Tray Pizzy, (having produced for both Dave & Tray) and more, Jay Pres has embarked on his own musical journey in Hip Hop.
Today, he dropped a surprise tape titled, Sephora. The tape, strictly comprised of covers, plays off the make-up brand’s name – people use make-up to cover up. “Get it?,” says Jay Pres. Putting his on twist on some of the hottest cuts out on the radio right now, ‘Sephora’ shows another side of Jay that spotlights his alter ego, “John the Don.”
The release follows Jay’s recent performance at SOB’s for Hot 97’s Who’s Next Live. He was interviewed on Blame Ebro’s website shortly after. Hot 97’s Scottie Beam also included Jay’s “Swaggy P” single on her #PutYouOnPlaylist a few weeks ago.
