An introduction is not to be taken lightly especially since you only get one first introduction. Narrator's like Morgan Freeman and Forest Whitaker are often sought after because they know how to properly set the stage. And who can forget the DeRay Davis's impression of the late great comedian Bernie Mac on Kanye West's first album College Dropout. This was the introduction to the artist and hip-hop legend/producer/fashion designer we know today as Kanye West. With all that being said, the right introduction can change lives.
I remember being at bar that had a rap show going on and the music cutting off. As the beat started up a young kid from outside grabbed the mic and started to rap like his life depended on it. He was not 21 yet, so he couldn't come in the venue, so he continued to rap outside the door. And with every bar, every verse guided him one step closer to the door. I remember asking Dial Tone, "Who is that?". He said "That's Jay MBA. He's a dope producer, and he can rap". And as soon as I turned back to the door I saw Jay MBA with all bravado step through the door and rap straight bars.... That night I remember thinking to myself. Now that's an introduction.
I asked Jay MBA what song would he use to introduce himself to the world and he sent this song called "Beforeigo". The song is fire. It has that classic Boom Bap production layered with a melodic combination of piano chords and violin strings. Jay MBA has a smooth flow smooth that is as cool as his demeanor. The song has these moments that are as powerful as spoken word artists on a Def Poetry Jam stage with deeply engraved metaphors. And the last thing to note about this track is that sprinkled subtly throughout the track is.. bars!! So if this is Jay MBA's introduction to the world, than I would say again. Now that's an introduction.
Al Pacino with the keys,
