Jay Verze’s first track of 2013 “David Ruffin” gets featured in the Baltimore Sun along with other releases from other notable Baltimore artist such as Los, Starrz, Rickie Jacobs, & D Boi.
This lyrical portrait of a rising star embodies both the glamour of the grind and the struggle of a young man who is just “trying to do his own thing.” The mellow instrumental produced by Scrilla Beats, and heartfelt lyrics written and delivered by Jay Verze gives this track a timeless sense of connection that is not unlike that of “Today Was a Good Day” by Ice Cube or “Look What You’ve Done” by Drake. Although this is not the song to dance to in the club, it is the song, or the work of art rather, that will remind you of whom you were while motivating you to be who you always wanted to be by doing your own thing.
“Music has always been a part of this young mans life. Growing up in a home that was filled with soulful music, Jay Verze first held a mic in his hand at the tender age of 3. From his first album “Animate the Lifeless” to his current one “21117″ this artist is breaking the stereotypes, picking up the torch to rekindle that which was once thought to be dead; Hip Hop. From being featured in the Baltimore Sun as one of Baltimore’s top 5 promising rappers to opening up for the rapper Cam’Ron, understandably I was excited about meeting this artist. Jay Verze, a rapper from MD who was gracious enough to allow me some time to interview him before he went off to do a show that night.”
