New Music: Harlem’s Own Runs For Music Office On His Project ‘Jay Pres For Prezident’

Just recently making waves and delivering his gravitating flow on the Huffington Post series BARS, Harlem’s own Jay Pres drops his latest project Jay Pres For Prezident.

Available on key music and Hip-Hop streaming platforms like Spinrilla and Datpiff, the project provides 10 tracks with production from Grammy-winning producer Chase N Cash, Evan Brown Of Key Majors, High Volume Music, & Stercity, in addition to Prezi’s self-produced track “Flexin.” Always keeping his fellow peers and family in close proximity, the budding artist collaborated with fellow Harlem natives Kadeem King & Qu’ality for a couple bangers not to mention having his father, who tours with Prezi’s uncle Roy Ayers, throw some soulful vocals on the intro.

Jay and his team wanted to take a different approach on the campaign for the project giving a different promotional twist. In a world dominated by social media, they decided to hit the streets and flood several NYC neighborhoods with the cards that you see above. Supporters began posting the cards on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat by the hundreds.

Jay Pres spoke on the method to his madness:

“We just wanted to build traction, get some new people listening so I went and bought 15,000 cards and we went to every projects, throwing them on the floors, literally flooding the streets,” Prezi said recently. “As far as the music goes I feel like this project shows my growth as an artist. It¹s one of them tapes where everyone is gonna have a different favorite. And as far as the name, I’m Harlem’s President, it¹s that simple.”

https://soundcloud.com/jay_pres/sets/mac

As the year comes to a close, it’s safe to say that Jay Pres had a productive year. The Harlem native has released three projects and 4 singles, alone, in 2016. He also performed at the legendary SOB’s 3 times – once for Hot 97‘s “Who’s Next” Showcase series. One of the projects Pres released was a surprised mixtape comprised of covers and remixes of popular records titled, “Sephora.” And it’s followup arrives just in time for the holidays.
And interestingly enough, it’s titled, “MAC.” This time around, we find Jay Pres covering classic Hip Hop records such as Wutang Clan’s, “C.R.E.A.M.” and Jay Z’s “Dead Presidents.” This tape truly showcases Jay Pres’ versatility as a rapper. It validates his skills while showing (and proving) that he is more than capable of delivering, no matter the beat. Whether you’re a Millennial fan, or a lover of the Golden Era, you can appreciate what Jay Pres has to offer as a Hip Hop artist.
About Jay Pres:
The young, rising talent from one of Manhattan’s notorious neighborhoods, has been consistent with his music; since transitioning into Hip Hop from playing college basketball. He’s a familiar name and face who has been associated with the likes of fellow Harlem native, Teyana TaylorDave East and Tray Pizzy (producer credits), and more. Jay Pres is undeniably on his way to leaving his own mark in Hip Hop. And like his uncle, Roy Ayers, is paving the way on his own musical journey.

Supakali Keeps It “1000” with Jay Pres [New Music]

In a span of three years, emerging Atlanta artist, Supakali, has accomplished a lot, independently. He has released two projects, opened up for Rick Ross in Washington DC, performed in venues and festival stages across the US, and is always winning over new listeners, while expanding his fan base. Over the Summer, the Georgia native took on the Big Apple as he made a temporary move to focus on his music career.

During his stay, Supakali recorded new music, shot a music video, performed a couple shows, and linked up with Harlem’s own, Jay Pres – who has worked with artists such as Dave East and Tray Pizzy. Together, the two emcees are a dynamic duo in the studio and it’s evident on their first ever collaboration. With Kev Cairo on the beat, “1000” will have you cranking up your speakers and singing along to the hook.

Forget “keeping it 100,” Supakali and Jay Pres keep it all the way 1000!

Supakali’s The 5th Quarter drops soon and will serve as the precursor to his long-awaited Soon You’ll Understand album.
