LV Jay Lives with No Regrets!

Meet  LV Jay an artist from Miami, Florida who refuses to live in regret. LV plans to take on his passion to another level and pursue his dreams as an artist and entrepreneur. V-Henny had the pleasure of interviewing him on his process and what he’s been currently working on.

V-Henny: Who inspired you to make music? 
LV Jay: As far as who inspired me I would say Lil Wayne  inspired me to make music because he is so versatile and can do a lot and that’s something I strive for in my music myself. My twin brother had introduced me to Lil Wayne music back when we were in middle school. I used to walk around with all his tapes downloaded on my PSP and It was over from then.

V-Henny: What age did you start writing and recording music?
 LV Jay: I actually started writing music at the age of 24 but at first I used to just freestyle with my friends and I eventually made my first track . Most of the time I would go off the flow of the beat & how I’m feeling at the time. But now I actually write my songs out. 

V-Henny: What made you want to become a player in the music industry?
LV Jay: What made me wanna become an artist is the freedom of expression they have and music is something that could help me talk to others that may be going through the same thing I’m going through in life . 

V-Henny: What is your goal with being an owner of a label?
LV Jay: My goal is to have my label big like QC one day and build a label with family vibes that’s very important to me . 

V-Henny: Looking back then to where you’re at now, give me a moment that made an impact within your music career. 
LV Jay: What made an impact on my music from back then to now is seeing my friend Yung JD go so hard and seeing other artists from Florida go hard in the rap game. They make me want it more and become a better artist myself.   

V-Henny: Has it been a smooth road for you as an artist? 
LV Jay: No it hasn’t been a smooth road as an artist because I’m an independent artist and you have to be organized in order to compete with other artists that are actually signed to these big labels . But to be real I Love the grind and the hustle that come with the music industry. 

V-Henny: What would you be doing right now, if it wasn’t for your music career?
LV Jay: If it wasn’t for music I’ll be going to school getting a masters degree or owning a business if I wasn’t focused on my music career . 

V-Henny: What were some of the steps you had to take to get to where you’re at in your career?
LV Jay: The steps I had to take was to find out what kind of artist I am and what kind of music I wanna make . Then after I discovered that I just started working on songs and investing in myself also started networking within the music industry. 

V-Henny: What projects are you presently working on?  
LV Jay: I’m working on a mixtape that I’m making with Yung JD right now. It’s going well so far and will be a hard tape. The tape will have 10 tracks on it. 

V-Henny: Who would you most like to collaborate with?
LV Jay: I would like to work with Lil Wayne , Future , DMX , Lil Durk, No Cap , Lil Baby , Polo G , Lil Tjay and Drake and many women artists like Summer Walker and Cardi B. 

V-Henny: Other notables you have worked with?  
LV Jay: Other nobles I have worked with was an artist named Saintlee. She has a great voice and we made a track called “Right from wrong” . It’s on my EP “I Jay You” which is on all platforms. 

V-Henny: What’s your ultimate goal within your artistry ?   
LV Jay: My goal is to become a gold artist first and then a platinum artist next. I wanna be the next big thing out of Florida .  

V-Henny: What is one message you would give to your fans? 
LV Jay: The message I wanna give people that listen to my music is a point of view of my life and also a positive message to grind and go get it no matter what challenges you may face. 


V-Henny: What is the best advice you’ve been given to pursue your goal as an artist and a label owner?
LV Jay: The best advice I got as an artist and a label owner is you go get out what you put in with this music game. Meaning the more I work the more progression I’ll see and if I don’t work on my craft you won’t see much change. 

V-Henny: Is there anything else you would like the world to know about you?
LV Jay:  I would like the world to know that I’m going to be the next big artist coming out of Florida.

Shorty Jah “The Only way is Up”

We are sitting down with Shorty Jah, an artist from the Brownsville section of Brooklyn as we watch him pursue his passion. The name “Shorty” came from him embracing his height as he felt the uniqueness within the nickname. Determined and hungry for success, Shorty Jah has made the effort to use his voice as motivation and share his story. His drive has placed him to perform at legendary venues such as SOB’s , Bowery Electric and BlackTop Boston, amongst other venues. Along with a bright .,future ahead of him, we are looking at a rising star ready to take over the industry by surprise. Shorty Jah the only way is up.

Pyro Da Arsonist: How would you describe yourself as an artist and how would you describe your sound?

Shorty Jah: As an artist I would describe myself as an electrifying exciting rockstar / artist that express his upbringing and creativity to his music. I would describe my sound as a very unique interesting flow because usually I switch my tones in majority of every song. Sometimes I may even switch my tone and flow on one song to keep my audience interested.

Pyro: The indie music scene is saturated with artists so what would you say sets you apart from the rest?

Shorty: The things that set me apart from other artist would be my style, my sound , my energy & my heart. I have 100% gatorade all the time i’m not an artist that just have to portray an imagine, everything they see from Shorty I live and i’m like this all the time.

Pyro: What are some characteristics you think an artists needs to be successful in their careers?

Shorty: In my opinion I feel as if artist should be themselves no matter what and be confident while doing it. Also the main thing I would express as an artist I feel if you don’t put fourth the effort and go 100% for yourself no one else will. So believe in yourself confidently and express that in your music & those successful traits will help you grow upon you.

Pyro: If music doesn’t work out for you do you have a back up plan or anything else you’re passionate about?

Shorty: Definitely, if music didn’t work out for some reason then I would be interested in doing modeling especially for different clothing brands. I love clothes and that’s another way that I express myself so that would definitely be something else I will be interested in.

Pyro: If you had the opportunity to be mentored by someone that can help you progress in your career who would it be and why?

Shorty: This is a great question i’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, if i had the chanced to be mentored by someone else other than my father it would definitely be Master P. Master P and myself have a very similar upbringing especially how he entered the industry. Master P also played basketball coming up, and so have I. I also love how Master P came into the industry with his own style and flavor and that’s definitely something I will do.

Pyro: In this age of social media and digital marketing do you feel like an artist needs to be signed to a major record label in order to be successful?

Shorty: In today’s age and with social media being a very highly influential market, I feel as most artist don’t really need a major record label , but having one can definitely still help an artist reach his or her fullest potential.

Pyro: What would you say is the difference between a track & a record?

Shorty: The difference between a track and a record would be a track is just an audio that’s recorded with lyrics on it. A record is a properly mix down audio with interesting lyrics that may keep the audience interested.

Pyro: Finally, do you have any final words you would like to say to our audience?

Shorty: Yes, I would love to say to my audience that I love you guys , most of the people who support my music have been with me since day 1 when I first started. They are really die hard fans and we have grown together and now that we are reaching another stage I feel as if they are growing with me and I just want them to be very excited because we have a lot of great new music , videos and other things we are working on. I know how my fans are and how they feel about me so they will be very excited and happy to be apart of all the new interesting things that I have for them.

Thank you for sitting down with us today. We look forward to seeing your growth as we follow your career and wish you much success in all you do.

They are a  multi-faceted group of men that wear many hats within the music industry. From running a recording studio called BlueNotesStuBX, Sonny and Geo developed a notable reputation on their craft  professionally as producers and engineers.

He was inspired by one particular artist by the name of Kiing Sky.  Geo admired his determination and  goal driven approach towards succeeding as a music artist. He was motivated to build the confidence to pick up the mic and stay true to himself on every record. Eventually, everything else just fell into place. Geo had a strong desire to make more music and with the help of Sonny and Ralph, The Joint Cheefs was created. Indica or Sativa as their first single off of their Pay Highmage album, a smooth high energy experience, leaving you organically urging to hear more of their creativity.
