There is something to be said about a musician that defies the laws of creativity. Since exploding on the scene in 2012 with the commercial hit “My Type”, Jay Cube has quickly become a permanent fixture on airwaves from Los Angeles to the United Kingdom, and Africa. The rich distinction in his voice, comes equipped with tradition that’s planted from his days of singing in the choir and then on to become the lead vocalist of the DMV based group Apexx.

From dropping the critically acclaimed mixtape “7YC” in 2012 to the present, momentum has shifted to almost euphoric levels which keeps fans wanting more.

To define Jay Cube would be a grave injustice to the art! “I don’t like to be put in a box with my music says Jay Cube. I love numerous genres of music. If it feels good to me, i write and compose to it. I can flow and bring my afro fusion melodies to the table when needed. I can do pop or urban at the same time. I like being unpredictable. Love it!” ~Jay Cube With a slate of features on major American acts set for 2017, the stage has been set for an epic collision with stardom.
