“Rattle” (listen/download)

Jeremiah Jay is a teen rapper rising through the ranks of the Hip-Hop world. He is representing the great state of Texas. He started his musical journey via drum playing and making beats. He’s performed everywhere from school events to hospitals. His largest audience thus far tops out at about 35,000 people. Not too shabby. Jeremiah uses music as a way to express himself and allow others to see into his life as a teenager. He also wants to motivate and inspire his peers. He wants them to know that no matter their circumstances that they need to: have a good time, be safe, and strive for success; because life is short. He carries out this goal by keeping his content lighthearted, amusing, and dance worthy. Additionally, he embodies these elements in his personality which is what has helped him quickly build up his fan base. But he’s not letting things like the tons of adoring female fan mobs that approach him in public, go to his head. He still wants to be seen as just another regular teen. Currently, he is signed with the Street Science Ent. family (Cassette Coast, Snow Tha Product) and is gearing up to release a mixtape in the Fall.
