Check Out Jay Saffi ’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jay Saffi.

Jay, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Well before I was making music, I used to breakdance and in middle school, I injured myself pretty badly. I started to get into rap battles and eventually performed at every school event. I made $500 selling my mixtape around my middle school trying to get my name out there and I started to learn how to engineer my own vocals. Fast forward to high school, I was still doing the talent shows and music videos, then my senior year, I opened my own studio where I was a music engineer for other artists. Today, I’m continuously pushing the “Jay Saffi” brand. I just dropped my album “Promise” out everywhere and I’ve been getting a music video out every month. Tune in if you’re into R&B / Rap vibes.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it wasn’t a smooth road, I started rapping in middle school and at the time, I didn’t have the money to get a quality mic. I had to use my rockband mic, haha. I went through all the programs like Audacity, Mixr, Cool Edit Pro and eventually bought FL Studio. It was really trial and error. Over time I gained an ear for music and how I could better my craft. I learned how songs should be structured and what’s needed to make a hit. This year 2020, I’ve learned marketing and how to beat the algorithms, so me and my team are working hard 24/7 to bring the “Jay Saffi” brand to new heights.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Well, I’m known for creating my own wave. My own sound. I mix rap with r&b flows and vice versa. I’d say I’m proud of the work that I’ve put in. I’ve helped several artists in San Diego curate their own songs and projects. I’ve done features with big named artists in San Diego like (Rossi Rock, YHG Pnut, Sethii Shmactt, etc.) lastly, I’m proud of my growth this year and the elevation of my sound.

So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
My family and friends, because loyalty is everything. I want to put money in my mom’s pockets before I give money to a jeweler or something. I want my friends who stayed real to eat with me when the eating gets good.
