Interviews

We recently interviewed KiddJayy, a very versatile artist, his music ranges from hip hop all the way to alternative rock, he just recently released his EP Titled love medicine, which features a mixture of emotional and hype type beats.

Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your professional career?
KiddJayy : Well when i was 14 iI started writing basic shit, like I would be sitting around with one of my friends and we would just randomly start freestyling, but as I started getting older i started to take things  alot more serious about it,and eventually I got motivated by alot of friends who told me to go for it if I had taste for it.

Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
KiddJayy : My best friend at the time so I was so intrigued with the art of music that she told me I should start writing and learning how to produce since I seemed really passionate about it and since then it’s became a drug to me and a great coping mechanism for dealing with some deep shit.

Twist Online : Tell us about your recently release EP Titled “love medicine”?
KiddJayy : So a couple of months ago i had tweeted that the EP was being worked on and would be released soon however due to multiple drawbacks like artists not sending in verses on time, I eventually went ahead and ending up finishing it up on my own after my girl told me not wait on people holding me back from the release, so big shoutout to her for pushing me to drop that, but I’ve had alot of beats that I had made they weren’t released so I took advantage of this project  and ending up dedicating most of the EP to those instrumentals, if you’re looking to just vibe, then by all means  peep that shit.

Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
KiddJayy : I actually got a decent amount of responses from a couple of people most took place on twitter, I actually got hit up by someone 30 mins after I dropped it asking if they credit me could they make some crazy shit with my beats, and i told him by all means go for it it’s all love and I just want to see other people continue to put out great songs, and it would be nice to listen to the stuff other artists can come up with on my beat, so in the end the overall response for the EP has been pretty good thus far.

Twist Online : Your song “slow suicide” did extremely well. You must be happy with the kind of response it has received?
KiddJayy : Yeah for sure, that was crazy how that whole thing got made was, I was networking through social media and connecting with a lot of artists and producers so I had ran pass this artists who at the time went by “Voni” and he had actaully got a chance to speak to Xxxtentacion about collaborating one day in the future, so I heard one of the beats he mad and ended up adding the dude on snapchat, he hit me back and said he would love to collab and after that he sent his verse and i recorded mine and the rest is history.

Twist Online : What attracts you more, performing on stage or working in studios?
KiddJayy : I never got a chance to perform on stage I’ve been offered but turned it down just because it seems a bit overwhelming, so i would say studio when I’m with alot of  friends and the vibe is dumb lit, we can sit there and come up with some banger shit.

Twist Online : Have you set some target to achieve as a music artist?
KiddJayy : Definitely I want to be able to have my music speak to alot of people, as long a my shit can hit atleast one soul then im straight, fuck the money and all the extra it’s nice and all but its not why do it, I just love making music and hoping that other people can find a connection between their mind
and my songs

Twist Online : Are you currently working on any other project?
KiddJayy : I have not worked on major project since the release of Love Medicine but i have a single i plan of releasing with reddlikeIcee. So i would say most def look forward to that

Have your say
