Fly Visual: Jay IDK – “Metro”

Rising hiphop star Jay IDK teams up with The Fader for an exclusive look at his new visual for “Metro” which really showcases nothing but propane spilled over fire production. The lyrical banger is one of many from the DMV natives booming project SubTrap, which has already gained over 1.5 million streams and counting.

“With the rap industry becoming more and more oversaturated, the difficulty of breaking as an independent artist has been steadily increasing. Without a major budget behind your art, its safe to say that 9/10 you’re wasting your time and energy. That last statement is exactly how I felt as I struggled to keep my name relevant by selling weed to pay for my career, which was music.

As my notoriety and career continued to advance, my life began to be more and more difficult and the money made from selling weed became less and less effective. My manager of just 6 months, randomly sent me a text message about no longer moving forward with my career because he found someone else he felt was more worth his efforts. Around that same time my lack of transportation and not having a car began to take its toll as the demand for public appearances grew. With all the pressuring of the industry and life itself, I began to contemplate new ways to make more money. I started thinking about selling cocaine.

This song “Metro” is what happens when the music industry, Life struggles and the drug game collide simultaneously.” – Jay IDK

Jay IDK recently rocked the stage in Detroit Michigan, sharing the spotlight with Future, The Migos and Yo Gotti. Expect more shows and new music to come at the top of the year from the young spitter.
