Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Jay Raw Brings To You "Florida State Of Mind" The New Florida Anthem

Song Description: This song is for those who don't see no light at the
end of the tunnel but still do what it takes to make ends meet to
feed themselves and or family.

Born May 27th, 1992 in Florida but moved to Atlanta at a young age Jermaine Grier A.k.a Jay Raw is a up and coming artist. Jay was the oldest out of his 5 brothers and sisters, they grew up in a broken home his parents split and his father moved to Florida when he was only 2 years old. Growing up his life was in a balance between being good and bad he had a lot of friends and was well known in his neighborhood which was located in East Atlanta in the Edgewood projects. He was being raised by his mother, her boyfriend and grandmother. It was a struggle due to him having to sleep in the same bed with all of his siblings and having to share 1 bathroom with the whole household. Jay grew up listening to T.I., Gucci Mane, Outkast, and Lil' Wayne just to name a few artists. He was inspired into doing music because of watching 2Pac, Gucci Mane, Michael Jordan, and Lil' Wayne.



Jay and his family stayed in Atlanta till he was 12 years old than moved with his family to Florida at 13 he chose to visit his father and was moving back and forth between his mothers and fathers house. He started getting into music as an artist at the age of 15 but didn't take it seriously till the age of 18. When starting out he would beat on desks due to him having anger issues one day his uncle told him the best way to relieve his anger was to write down how he was feeling at the time he was angry. He continued writing music for about 2 years till one of his friends named Tye introduced him to another friend who was a producer who had a studio, Jay asked him if he could come and check out his studio one day he said yes than after one month of waiting Jay finally went to his studio during that time the producer was working on a beat and played it for him to check out the producer told him to go ahead and rap so he picked a song from his notebook that he had wrote down and started rapping, once finished the producer started giving him feedback on bettering his style.

When he was 16 his mother kicked him out because he stopped going to high school, he chose to stay with his father which didn't last long due to him getting into trouble a lot and catching a case at 17 for battery on a leo and resisting arrest he went to jail for about a day or two before being released on own recognizance.

He caught many cases from 2007-2009 from failing to appear to attempted murder. At 20 years old he went to prison for catching a charge for attempted arson and was sentenced to 4 years in New River Work Camp & 4 years of probation. Once he was released from prison and successfully completed his probation he started going to the studio almost everyday.

At 24 years old he performed his first song titled "My Name" at a club in Gulfport, Florida which than led to 14 more continuous shows, he is working on releasing a mixtape scheduled for a summer release date titled "Raw Shit Volume 1". In March 2018 he ended up partnering with Colossal Music Group / Colossal Records based out of California and Florida. Jay Raw has a bright future ahead of him and plans on expanding his name and brand musically overseas.
