[BRONX, NEW YORK] Making his return on NikkiSiixx.com, Jayomega has been non-stop over the last year. With a successful podcast series called “The Officially Street”, making it to episode 52. Also, the last time we featured some music from Jayomega was with It’s My Time single, and he opened up my compilation mixtape NETWERK VOL TEN with SANCTUARY PART II. And when I added him on the POLL: Who Sampled It Better? Kingdom Hearts Utada Hikaru – Sanctuary, in which he won on listeners choice.
Now, he brings us THE ESSENCE EP. The eight track ep is a great way to reintroduce himself to new/old listerners. Here’s what Jayomega had to say about his approach in creating this EP. “I miss the essence of hip hop. I miss the era of the late 90’s and early 2000’s when lyrics, content and conTEXT actually mattered. There was a time when you had to be about what you claimed you were, and you were only respected if you honored the competitive nature of the genre and EARNED your spot by rapping your ass off to get there. It hasn’t been that way in like 8 years, and so I did this EP for those fans/artist who miss that era as well”.
I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off the project. My favorite songs are What It Sound Like? Tell Me What You See, Sanctuary Part II, When Love Dies, Let Me Tell You Something, and First 48.
[WHAT IT SOUND LIKE?] I feel that Jayomega, is motivated to not give up. The Essence EP is Jayomega’s tenth independent project release. The voice that was sampled is from Eric Thomas, an inspirational hip-hop speaker. What they used, makes you want to move forward. The production reminds me of late 90’s New York hip-hop track, produced by Syer (Co-Host of The Offically Street Podcast).
[TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE] During the hook Jayomega wants you to close you’re eyes, and open your mind. What do you see? Jayomega takes you to what he’s mind sees. Living life to the fullest and keeping your head up. His flow on the track fits perfectly with the production by Lil BEZ.
[SANCTUARY PART II] Jayomega was inspired by the original song when he first heard it on the opening credits of “Kingdom Hearts 2”, a popular Disney inspired RPG that released for Playstation 2 in 2005. Jayomega originally released “Sanctuary” on his mixtape “Ready Set Go 2: Going Going Gone“, but could never fully promote it as it violated some copyright laws. Jayomega sent me the track and advised him he should really get to remaking that beat to generate the song. But instead of using the same lyrics, he went in. Jayomega’s flow meets the pace to Syer amazing production skills. This track will always be one of my favorites! And Shoutout to Jayomega for giving my site a shoutout at the beginning/end of the track.
[WHEN LOVE DIES] This track wow! It hit a nerve. But Jayomega’s story-telling of a love that ended. When that spark no longer existed and makes it difficult to continue with that person. You just have no emotion left what so ever. With this story, something wasn’t right from the start, but love falls heavy and it just doesn’t matter since you finally have this person. But then things get shady and sometimes relationships can’t last. Jayomega’s tone is sincere and makes you think its better to have a love that’s lost then not loving at all. Give love a try.
[LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING] What! This track goes hard! Jayomega brings that fuego on this one. His flow is fast and telling it like it is. Presence is strong with Jayomega. That heavy bass brings out the animal in Jayomega, production by Syer. Love the chemistry with these too. They can really make some dope music together.
[FIRST 48] Jayomega can’t wait any longer for Syer’s beat, its time for a freestyle. Well, more like an acapella… When Jayomega is ready in the studio, he’s filled with passion with his rhymes. Straight up BARS!
I find the eight track EP to be a good amount of songs for this project. Lately due to people’s attention span, usually long mixtapes of over 20 songs fall on deaf ears. Giving the listener enough to want some more. I thought Jayomega’s The Essence EP was a dope listen and solid with production choices and lyrical content. If you’re diggin Jayomega make sure show support listen to the project, follow him on all his social media outlets, and don’t forget to stay tune for more episodes of The Officially Street Podcast!
We’re back for another episode of The Officially Street Podcast, and in honor of the estrogen filled week we’ve had-as well as it being days away from Valentines Day-they decided to bring Cherry Poppins back to the studio to help us discuss it all. We talk about the Superbowl half time show, Beyonce’s new surprise song, video, AND tour “Formation”, relationships, marriage, parenthood, and MUCH more! This is a pretty long episode, but we promise you, it’s worth every second!

Anything can inspire a beat, you just need the right sample. Samples can be quotes from a movie, soundtracks to video games and audio of passed interviews. Its common to have a few people inspire by the same thing. I decided to create a Poll to who sampled it better. This session we’ll concentrate on Kingdom Hearts II Intro with Utada Hikaru Sanctuary. Here’s how the intro looks and sounds like:
Alright, so you have the feel for Utada Hikaru Sanctuary. I’m a huge fan of the Kingdom Hearts Series and I love this song truly. What’s even better, I was able to find four artist who used this sample one way or another in their track. I was pretty impressed by the different versions of this track. Here are your options of Who Sampled It Better?
[BRONX,NY- EASTBURG,PA] Rapper/Producer Syer released this track called BEEN DOING featuring artist Jayomega. I recommend you play this track when you’re out partying. I can hear this playing at the club, most definitely. The BEEN DOING track was featured on his Soundcloud through his ESSO Fridays! Syer also released his mixtape called Coming For The Crown Vol 3, fourteen tracks that we’re produced and created himself. Jayomega makes an appearance on the mixtape three times. If you like this track by Syer let him know via his social media accounts.
[BRONX, NEW YORK] JAYOMEGA releases his latest track IT’S MY TIME. Inspired by 2Chainz mixtape Tru REALigion, using the hook as inspiration from one of his songs on that tape. It’s pretty dope that JAYOMEGA has some lines referencing to Dragon Ball Z. IT’S MY TIME was produced by SYER. He’s pretty confident in his lyrics. He just wants to show the world of Hip-Hop that it’s his time to come. What do you think of his track?
Have you ever experienced a day that you really give no fucks. You’re just on your own lane and you just want to take that ride. Bronx Artist JAYOMEGA definitely showcases this on his new single NO F*CKS GIVEN. This is actually JAYOMEGA first single off of his upcoming but currently untitled EP, scheduled to drop late this year. Jayomega uses his versatile style and sound to express his feelings, especially when it’s flicking the middle finger. With this track I can see it getting played in the club and everyone is just not giving a fuck and joining JAYOMEGA on the hook. “I Walk In With Stacks All In My Pants… Middle Finger To The Skies Screaming I Don’t Give No Fucks”! Stay in the loop with JAYOMEGA on his social media links below.
