Meet Jayy Grams, a young talent out of Baltimore who’s making his DopeHouse debut with the release of his new album, Every Gram Counts.
At the age six, Jayy Grams had to learn very quickly how life can change at the blink of an eye. “I remember my mom picking me and my sisters up from school but she looked distraught,” he recalls. “She wouldn’t say what exactly happened but just kept her eyes on the road. Finally, we stopped in front of my grandmother’s house, and she turned back at us and all I can remember is my sisters bawling in tears.” He found out that his father was killed and they were moving into their grandmother’s house.
By the age of 12, Grams was already entrenched in music, from producing his own music to releasing various projects–which led to capturing the attention of Cinematic Music Group with his “Warzone” freestyle.
Back in 2018, Grams also appeared on a Sway in the Morning cypher alongside South Central’s JAG, which is where I first heard him rap, but I wanted to hear a more polished project to fully gauge my thoughts.
With CMG in his corner, Jayy Grams has released his new album, Every Gram Counts, which features a lone appearance from Smoke DZA–leaving the 13 other tracks as a canvas for Jayy to get his shit off. From “Hood Tales” to all out verbal gymnastics, the kid from B-More is here to show and prove.
