Get to know: JayR City



How did you come up with your name?
I came up with the name City from nba live 06. As crazy as that sounds. I was listening to one of my favorite songs on there. Guy had a dope line and put city in it. So I was like yo that’s what I’ll call myself. That’s how desperate I was at the time lol. I was struggling to find a name that fits and represents what my music embodies. So it’s fitting that name speaks to what I feel I’m carrying as am artist. And that’s my City.

Where are you from?
I’m from Cleveland, Ohio

Whats it like growing up where your from?
Just from my vantage point. Pain, love, frustration, more pain, and heart ache… But that’s my adult life lol. Growing up was actually more simplistic. Though I didn’t have all my wants as a kid. My mom on her own tried her best to acquire my needs. As well as my 2 other simblings. Times were hard but that adversity built me and molded me. I’m grateful growing for me in my City? Was a learning experience to sum it all up

How did you get into music?
My mom was a Christian like a super Christian. So she wasn’t into rap. She played some R&B and so did my grandmother. So I’ve always been around music. I started out singing. I hit into rap because although my mom didn’t play it. My older sister did. The first rap album I heard was “Me Against the world” by tupac. Ever since then I was hooked.

What makes you different than other artists?
What makes me different from most artist. Is that I’m me first and foremost. Everything that I’ve mentioned in previous answers tell a story. An can vouch for my understanding. I make music for the every day individual. I’m the bartender I’m the barber. I’m the marriage counselor I’m the best Friend. I’m here to talk to you. To tell you that’s it’s not just you. Your not alone but I can turn up with you. I can get you over that break up. I’m set apart because. I’m not always looking to flex on my listeners. We all go thru real issues. Whatever yours is I have the remedy for it thru music.

What are you currently working on?
I’m working on my Ep titled “Progression to greatness”
