+ There's a style to the music.
+ There's a fashion to the words.

+ There's a seduction in the sound of Jay West, but what makes it provocative is all within the details.

+ The Jay West Perspective is romantic. The Jay West Aesthetic is tailored. The Jay West agenda is to INSPIRE. “Southern California’s Newest Buzzworthy Artist” is preparing a follow-up to the cult classic mixtape, “Drugs+Candy”. The table is set.

BB Notes: 8.3.11

A Toast...

After D+C I realized something about myself or moreso about my work. I don't want to be the guy with the overpriced art that nobody can relate to. I don't want to be a rebel without a cause. I want to create good work. I want to convey an idea that people can connect with. And That is that people want better for themselves and at our core we are willing to sacrifice for the greater good. I want to receive Champagne for my pain.

In America, people give their lives to their jobs. Its the kind of place where what you do defines who you are, at least for most people. I wish it could be the other way around, where who you are defines what you do.

My team: In a record, I had a line where I said "if I stop, it all stops, so I can't stop at all" but that's not the case. Truthfully, you guys individually are the elements that could make any artist a success. You could take me out the equation and put another rapper in my spot and he'd be set up nice! I just appreciate that you guys believe in me so much that you throw your weight on my side of the scale.

When you're waiting to get on, you sometimes feel like you're waiting for your life to begin. This is a stretch in comparison but I liken it to what Christians feel when they imagine what heaven might be like. Well, I've had talks with the guys who have seen the afterlife. Guys like Phil.TheGod, like Coodie and Chike or guys like Sham who have worked the best in the biz. And they come back and tell me, "Yo, you got it. Just create the content. Just create the music". We have the team right now that could take over the world.

Bravo! Watch what happens...
