Your energy and conviction was beyond amazing. You also played so much of your own music and I kept saying to you “Jay! Why do you have so much dope unreleased Music??? Let the world hear it!! ” These were my words” Tomorrow is Not guaranteed. LIFE Is Unpredictable” We spoke about a lot. From coming up in the game and building amazing projects with @thisisaq way back from Surulere to creating classics for @loosekaynon @mi_abaga @superboycheque
Then I woke up to a post yesterday about your demise.
I’m so heartbroken.
You left way too early
