New Orleans’ 17th Ward has long been known as a hotbed of solid and unique talent – a mecca, if you will. The proverbial torch has been handed down from the legends to a new crop of lyrical creatives that includes and is a led by Jay Jones, Hollygrove Keem and prior to his recent untimely death, BTY YoungN. The trio has an amazing and unrivaled energy and are sure to leave quite a mark on the entertainment world.
The trio’s new album “Cut the Check” is a precursor to much more new music, but is a classic in and of itself. “Cut the Check” includes the smash hit with Fetty Wap entitled “The Zoo”, and contains features from the legendary Jay Da Menace (of Black Menace), recent 300 signee Navè Monjo, T3, AR-Ab, Remyboy Monty, and C-Dash. Breakout hit “Stay Down” is also included in the dope tracklisting.
Jay Jones recently began touring with Lil Wayne’s Kloser 2 U Tour and has traveled across the U.S. performing in various shows, including Wayne’s SXSW headlined show. Hollygrove Keem is a sought after rapper, having featured on countless songs with more material set to be released soon. At the time of his death on April 29th, BTY YoungN was a rising star affiliated with Cash Money/Rich Gang, and was a well-known rapper and entertainment personality. His loss created a ripple effect throughout the music world.
“Cut the Check” is available for download/streaming everywhere music is sold, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, JPay, and hundreds of other international outlets.
“Iron Bars” is the creation of four of the dopest emcees to ever touch a mic. The production is pure, unadulterated Hip Hop laced with solid lyrics and a Kool G Rap hook that rivals any verse in rap history. Papoose, Uniqme and Canibus show off their true lyrical skills, with clever word play and a solid flow.
The song from rising star Jay Jones features R&B sensation Denisia.
Jay Jones hit the scene several years ago and has steadily been making moves ever since. This multiple award winning artist is working hard to solidify a position among the greats. His lyrical skills are unrivaled. Jay has toured and performed with major artists, including Lil Wayne, Fetty Wap, Dej Loaf, and more. He was also featured on Fetty Wap’s “The Zoo”, a hit song with a video that garnered millions of views. Jay has also been working closely with Lil Wayne.

The young legend Jay Jones has done it again, this time with his new mixtape entitled “Kill Mode”. The title doesn’t lie either – Jay Jones lyrically slays and he kills every track he touches. It’s no wonder he took home a slew of awards last year from the NOLA Music Awards, most notably the coveted Lyricist of the Year Award.
