STL’s own NMW KayJay brings together intense and fiery themes of strength, passion, lust, remorse – and sculpts them into pieces that are guided by the foundations laid down by the fathers of old-school and new trap sounds. His music can be described as heartfelt stories that take your mind through a journey of deep introspection, while contrasted with infectious beats and hooks that keep the listener coming back for more.
