CREATIFF "new" Artist SPOTLIGHT: ROB JAY
Rob Jay is emerging as one of hip hops brightest young talents. From his witty word play to his diverse subject range he has all of the tools neccesary to take it to the next level. Over the past six months, media outlets have begun to take notice. In December, he was recognized as one of America top 100 unsigned artist by Music Connection Magazine. This led to coverage in Urb Magazine, East of L.A. and a selection to headline The Armed Forces Entertainment Tour in Southwest Asia.
As his buzz continues grow, he has remained focused on his ultimate goal for 2009. "Coming into this year my goal was to be selected as one of Hip Hops Top Freshmen in The December 2009 issue of The XXL. I'm doing everything in my power to get it, and even if I don't reach that goal, the pursuit of it has led me to get press and coverage on a level that I haven't seen before."

Sidenote: Rob Jay was featured on my site back in July when I posted a video to one of THE hottest hip-hop Obama tribute songs. I thought I'd heard enough of the tribute songs, but was glad I remained open to his lyrical flow on "Obama Represents Me" --to the tune of Jay-Z's, "Dead Presidents." (click here to see his video)
