Mikey Jay is an actor and rapper in N.Y.C. He is a busy man with all his film projects and booming music career! He is always on the go! We do a Q & A with the N.Y.C Star.
Q. How’d u get into the biz?
A. I actually began rapping at a very early age and produced my first piece of instrumentation at the age of 16. I was also deejaying neighbourhood parties and grabbing the microphone every now and than. There were times when I became conflicted between the music game and the streets and I kept getting jammed up landing behind bars and 50% of the time I had no one to blame but myself. One day I said the hell with this and I quit my job and the streets game and went full throttle with my music career. No more working for anyone else and damn sure no more streets.
Q. What was your first project?
A. Oh wow… My first project? Damn it had to be my EP “EmJay” That’s the Name I used to utilize when I jumped back onto the rap scene. I wanted to utilize Mike Jones but the Texas rapper Mike Jones beat me to the punch.
What is your latest project?
My latest project is actually a few projects. I’m currently in production of a feature film that i am starring, producing, co-directing and executive producing called “Color Blind”. I’m also producing the soundtrack which features myself and some of the other cast members. I’m also putting the finishing touches on my forthcoming LP “DeFamation Of Character”. I’ll also be touring this year to promote my album and the film as well as lecturing and speaking on music panels at seminars and festivals.
Where do you see yourself in the near future?
I see myself still elevating with my music and my films. Forever evolving. I’ll still be passing my blessings on to those deserving of my blessings. In other words God and Christ blessed me so I am in position to bless others. Basically In the near future I see myself still being blessed by God and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and passing those same blessings along.
