This was followed by a series of alleged rumours of even assualt and rape. This had led to the downfall of Jay-D’s music career. However the former rnb artist has been in rehab for the last 4 years and has finally got back his music hobby. Find what really lead to the downfall of JayD‘s music career from an exlucsive inter- He always pushed me to produce a view of Jay-D himself !!! song rather than just thinking of lyrics all the time. By the age of 16 i had made 8 songs but didnt really have I WAS BORN TO BE ON $TAGE !! guts to produce them. He always encouraged me to produce my songs What inspired you to become and at the age of 18 I took his advice an R’n’B artist? and released my first song. Well my main inspration was artistslike There have been many rumours P.Diddy, Snoop Dog and Akon.When I about your exit to R’n’B in 2007, was a kid I used to alwayslisten to R’n’B. but what really lead to the downfall But my most determined inspiration was of your music career? by older brother. He always said I was Well some of the rumours are true born to be on stage with the voice that and then again some aren’t. The truth I had. Also inspiring me was my family is that there were many things that as well as my brother. My father always said to something you like, not something lead to the downfall of my career. you have to do. I have always loved music Firstly my girlfriend had cheated on me with my second cousin. That lead ever since I was a child. When I was a to a lot of depression. This is how kid I used listen carefully to lyrics I got into the drugs as i saw drugs espicailly the lyrics of immortal as the way out. But now i realise it technique. His lyrics were mesmorising. wasnt the answer. It was the worst This is really when I started making up possible thing to do at the time. So my own lyrics. But i have to say my you could say from that stage my biggest inspiration was my best friend career was just going to go downhill. who was also my first producer.
What can you tell us about your new album ‘Man Made’ ? Well there’s a lot to tell about my new album. but i will tell you one thing this album is different to the rest. Its all real talk ! This album will tell you what i went through; how I lost my love ones and how I struggled without them. If you really want to know more about my album jus buy it. There’s nothing more i can tell you. Just listen to the songs on the album, they will tell you the rest. IT’S ALL REAL TALK !!
What was it like in rehab? Lets just say rehab isn’t one of the easiest things to go through. However you can’t have anything with out hard work. I had to struggle a lot. I just kept on telling myslef that once I get back to where I was everything would feel a lot better. My main motivation was that my brother felt that I was meant for a music career and this is not the end. The feeling that you get when you overcome the struggle and reach the top once again its just so great.
