Jay Rick$ is an American Hip Hop artist who was raised in Monroe, Louisiana. His hometown has a major impact on the way he deserves his rhymes. When he was younger , he was affiliated with the city's local gang called "Sac Town" which is a derivative name that stands for Drug Town. He grew up in a two parent home but it was always conflict happening but no matter what he always put God first and proceeded to level up every time. Unlike many others within Jay Rick$ hood, he decided to stop with the gang drag on and took his education serious. In 2015, he accomplished his dream of making it out of the hood and going to college. Jay Rick$ attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the same college Frank Ocean attended. Jay's major was Mechanical Engineering but  he switched it to Graphic Designing once he realized it would not fit his lifestyle. While in college, he developed many relationships and caught the eyes of some major Lafayette artists. When he met a guy named Brian, he made his first debut single that is named "The Goat."  With the creation of this song brought a lot of attention for Jay Rick$ over the campus. Once Jay Rick$ realized he was destine to be a music artist, he began work towards his debut album named "I am That I am." This album led to a new person to join in on Jay Rick$ journey, his name was Kenny Wade. Kenny Wade exclusively produced I am that I am which was released on January 13th, 2017. After the release of his album, Jay Rick$ had another eye opener to where he found out that he was an entrepreneur and college was not going to help him evolve effectively. He then took his talents from Lafayette and moved to New Orleans where he currently resides. Jay Rick$ has met Mannie Fresh(Big Tymers), Pj Morton(Grammy nominated artist), Wild Wayne( Q93.3 radio host), Fiend (multi platinum No Limit Artist), and many more! Jay Rick$ has graced the stages of The Willow Uptown,The Howlin Wolf, The Dragon Den, Reneda Collins Love and Wisdom Show,and on March 15,2019, he was one of the opening acts for Kodak Black's Dying to Live Tour, that was also Kodak Black's first time ever performing in New Orleans Louisiana.
