JAY FOX talks about his craft, sense of style and more
How did you come by your stage name?
It’s funny when people ask me that. I had a spiritual experience with a fox. It might sound crazy but it’s true. Also, people have always said I look like Jamie Fox. Ha!
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I found my love for music very young. My father is a DJ so growing up I heard anything you could name especially old school hip-hop and R&B and I instantly became fascinated with it.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I compare my style to The Mighty O. OutKast. They played a big part in my life. J. Cole and K.R.I.T. also. I learned a lot from listening to Drake. That “Thank Me Later” cd I bought played so much that the cd scratched up in the CD player.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
When I decided to go by Jay Fox, I had to decide on a way to present my craft. Lil Wayne has “The Carter”. Jay Z has “The Blueprint”. I speak in my life. The tales of my life are an ongoing story. I try to look at myself from a potential fans’ perspective. I hope my music is seen as one big epic poem like the Oddessy. FoxTales: An ongoing adventure.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Sometimes I can be driven between different melodies or flows when it comes to songs. Both are dope but which should I use you know? I feel that taking my time is an attribute because I give myself breaks to really dissect and digest the beat
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
I feel I’m the best at being me. That’s one thing nobody else can do. To be honest though, after dropping “Foxtales Coldfacts” I feel like the pressure is on. I’m going to leave it at that.
What are your plans for the near future?
Working. Grinding. Promoting. In the words of the Late Nipsey Husle “The marathon continues”. It’s all about growth. New music and videos are coming. It’s up!
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I want to give a shout out to Powerseat Music Group. Ceo Cornaztone, Coo AyoKipp, and my labelmates Muddy1K, Styyle, Th3rd Eye, and as always free Hotboi Ty. Can’t wait till he comes home. “Foxtales Cold Facts” out now on all streaming platforms. Styyle “4EVRSTR8” out on all platforms.
