Who is Jay2trill?
I was born in Takoma Park, Maryland but I lived in Ghana for like 16 years, and honestly I feel like it helped me become who I now because when I moved here I went completely left during my junior and senior year of high school, I started doing drugs hanging out with the thugs and it got to a point where my mom wasn’t having it you feel me African parents don’t play that so my mom kicked me out and she was planning to move back to the DMV because she used to live here before I moved here. She was gonna leave me in Florida but then she decided to bring me with her. I was like 18 at the time. I was gonna join the army but it didn’t work so I started at a community college down the street called Montgomery college majoring in cyber security. I met my best friend, another rapper John Clark The Rapper, at the community college who started mixing my songs and eventually I learned how to mix from him. I wasn’t really rapping like that before I met him, I was only just recording memos on my phone while I was at work. During this time here in the DMV I would say God found me. People usually say I found God but I wasn’t really looking for God like that but he found me and kind of flipped my life around. You know now I am an entirely different person. I personally believe all the events of my life have happened leading me on this path you know so I can touch people with my music maybe they’ll find God like I did through my music and even if they don’t if my music inspires someone to be a better human, to learn from my past mistakes and victories and lessons that I put in my songs then I would say I am accomplishing my purpose in life.
