"Jay Greedy Urb's next 1000"


Chicago bred and of Nigerian heritage, Jay Greedy is the counter act to the gangsta acts that populate hip-hop's perceived populace. Instead of lyrics about holding stacks of cash or ballin’ out of control, Greedy chooses to focus on more aspiring, or even comical lyrics. Song titles like "Crack Is Wack and Coke Is Dope" are prime examples of the fact the he is not the quintessential dope boy rapper. It's a different kind of dope. Indie label The Sweat Shop is home to Jay Greedy. It is apparent that they allow him to explore his creative essence, with his genre being described as "Hip-Hop/Under Water Whale Sex" on his Facebook page. However, don’t let his zany approach to rap be a deterrent from his considerable lyrical abilities. It’s the perfect approach--lyrics plus a keen sense of humor equates to a unique flow.

"Criss Ruler and Jay Greedy- Relax Yourself"

Today we have new music from up-incoming artists Criss Ruller and Jay Greedy. The Chicago natives are apart of The Sweatshop Music Group. You can catch these two on the party scene in Chicago performing at several parties like Wonder Yrs 3.5, Haut, and Double Door. Although these two are not a duo, they work well with each other.

Criss Ruller seen on the right produced their own remixed edition of Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxation”. As for Jay Greedy, he is an artist who not only dabbles in Hip-Hop, but expands his music in different genres. This is a classic song from Tribe. I love that I’m not comparing the two because their different, that’s the beauty of a well produced remix. Check out this single from Criss Ruller and Jay Greedy.

Is it a [Hit or Quit] ?

Discography

Jay Greedy is currently working on what he calls the project that will change the coarse of music forever. And the name of his project couldn’t reflect more the mind of this abstract artist, Dont Smoke The Cigarette Mixtape. This 19 year old has been working on this project for 2 years and he promises it is well worth the wait. He mixes nigerian house, pop, soul and Hip Hop to a culture who is now looking for great music but in different presentations. With His Single Fake I.D. available on all digital music retailers including itunes and amazon he is in the race to be a top 10 face in 2010. His single Fake ID reached the top spot on Chicago's radio WGCI, he still considers his self a talented local artist with a long way to go. He keeps the integrity in his music with songs like I’m Sry, which talk about the pressures he endures in his city, due to that lack of Chicago websites exposing his music while talking about a break up at a same time! In his European single Digital Love he mixes the element of the Daft Punk sample, “write it, get it , paste it, save It,” to talk about A long distance relationship between him and a certain woman he fell in love with. His experiment (as what he likes to call it) will be in a story setting manner, each song leading to the next. He calls it his life story! This kid is truly incredibly in the craft that he does. That is why his fans put him up with the league of, M.I.A., Kanye West, Jack Penate, and K’naan. But as Jay Greedy said in a blog interview, “The more left field musicians go, the more they stray away from the true path of making good music. My path is to leave my story behind in a beautiful song before I leave this world.” Jay Greedy can’t be any more correct.

Bio

Welcome to the wonderful musical world of one of the best up and coming indie artist in the world! Growing up in a south suburban home by Chicago, Illinois. James "Jay Greedy" King always had a passion for the arts. His knowledge and originality in music stemmed from his Nigerian heritage which his parents displayed to him at an early age. As a pre-schooler he would draw sketches of shoes and he would create rhythmic melodies using his mouth as a beatbox.

It wasn't until James' freshman year in high school when he learned how to compose music electronically by turning his visual thoughts into super-sonic sound.

He combined his love for a wide range of music and hip-hop to make earcandy for those who heard his compositions. That same year he started writing clever rhymes based off of personal relationships that he had encountered.

19 year old Jay Greedy is part of an indie music label called Angry Heroes who boast hands down the best young producers in the city of Chicago. Angry Hero Music Group boasts 3 super-producers and 4 artist including Jay Greedy, none of them are over 21! "I am just trying to surround myself with the best young talent from production to promotion’" said 19 year old Jay Greedy.

URB Magazine calls Jay Greedy's label, "a label that freely allows him to explore his crazy inquisitive side." Jay Greedy has been around Chicago greats from Good Music's own GLC to Kid Sister and Yung Berg. He has been given oppurtunites to perform alongside huge Indie artist like Raekwon, Mic Terror and Million $ Mano. He has observed and learned from best and he is executing what he observed in style.

He put together his awesome beats and his inspirational and thought provoking lyrics together to dominate the indie scene in the city of Chicago, and he is currently gaining international steem from the internet. With Radio plays on his belt, while staying indie he is proving that he can handle all levels of music commercialism. He is now ready to take the action to your television set. Get ready because the reveloution will be televised.
