It may surprise you that one of the UK’s most exciting new rappers is not coming out of London. Hailing from the relatively small city of Coventry, JAY1 is taking the UK by storm with his consistent stream of bangers. JAY1 flexes his bouncy flow and cheeky bars over some of the most minimal, bass heavy beats you will hear this week. JAY1’s hilarious braggadocious bars are guaranteed to stick in your head and keep you coming back to his music. As of now, he only has one tape, One Wave, but his singles put up serious numbers and it’s looking like it’s only up here.
