[Hip Hop News Now] Jay La’Mont Keeps It Foolishh, Drops New Visual “Stay Positive”

Jay La'Mont

Western Pennsylvania emcee Jay La’Mont is a young man with a very wise mentality. The 20 year old rapper knows that it is going to take more than just some clever bars to take him to the next level. The Johnstown native is working hard to not only create great music, but to build his Genius Society movement as well.  Jay recently dropped his Before The Genius EP which was well received. Below you can watch a video to one of the standout tracks from the EP, “Stay Positive.”

 

Jay is known for his trippy lyrics and positive vibes, but many don’t realize that he is also the guy behind many of the beats that he is dropping 16’s on. His Kanye West like talents have already placed him in a lane of his own. With that being said, it is not a real shocker that Kanye is one of Jay’s musical influences. However, Jay La’Mont’s musical influences are very broad, which is another great example of why his music does not fit in any particular niche. His wide-ranging influences include artists like Kanye West, Travis Scott, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Snoop Dogg, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles.  You can also catch him on any given day vibing to the sounds of George Clinton, Prince, and Eric Clapton. “I’m into music period. All of it is incorporated into my music,” said Jay. “It’s hard to really define my sound because it is so diverse.”

The Before The Genius EP is definitely an eargasm waiting to happen. The 12-track EP features production by Jay and it includes dope tracks like “Fly Away,” “Said And Done,” and “Open Your Mind.”

“I wanted to create music that would reflect the brand,” said Jay, “Before The Genius is the beginning of our story, from there I am going to continue to build on this.  Soon I’ll be dropping the next chapters to the story.” “This is going to be crazy, almost like a movie.”

screen-shot-2015-10-05-at-11-12-23-pm

Detroit native DeJ Loaf gained mass appeal last year with her smash hit “Try Me”. Since then she has been proving that she is much more than a “one-hit wonder”. DeJ’s EP #AndSeeThatsTheThing, which was released in July of this year, gave listeners a chance to get better acquainted with the double-threat emcee as she showcased her own R&B skills behind that soft voice. As fans await for a debut album by DeJ Loaf, she revisits #AndSeeThatsTheThing and delivers a brand new visual to “Back Up” featuring fellow Detroit native Big Sean.

In the “Back Up” video, you can find Loaf and friends hitting up a local roller rink and demonstrating some pretty dope skate-work. Be sure to keep an eye on this 2015 XXL Freshman as she continues to blossom into a Hip Hop vet.
