John Lynn, popularly known by his stage name Thottie Jay, has signed a new record deal with Interscope Records – an American record label owned by Universal Music Group. The new record deal will help the Southern artist reach a wider audience and touch more lives with his entertaining yet thought-provoking rap songs.
Rap has continued to evolve over the past decade. And more talented acts have emerged from different parts of the world, blessing music lovers with their diverse styles and lyrical dexterity. But some music experts believe that most new-age rappers have lost the substance that endeared the genre to millions of people worldwide. Adding that they lack originality and simply copy repeated styles.
However, Thottie Jay appears to have separated himself from the rest by gradually carving a niche for his edgy pop sound that has succeeded in drawing the attention of major stakeholders in the music industry.
Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Thottie Jay says he draws inspiration from his past experiences as well as the current happenings around him to challenge the status quo in the rap game. The artist adds that he leverages his lyrical prowess, amazing punchlines, and authenticity to capture the hearts of rap lovers and establish his unfamiliar sound as a fan favorite.
Thottie Jay also revealed that his music producer and songwriter, Vashni Mathews – AKA “The Aquadice,” helped with the creation of his unique sound and was instrumental in the signing of the deal with Interscope Records.
The rapper’s rise in the industry has been described as phenomenal, breaking into the limelight in 2019 following the successful release of “Thot Thot” in less than a year of doing music professionally.
The fast-rising star has collaborated with many other talented acts including Tay Money for whom he opened her show in Dallas and also performed before her.
Thottie Jay describes the recording deal with Interscope as a testament to his dedication and passion for his chosen art form. He puts everything into making his songs to ensure every line is impactful.
And also posits that his growing following across different social media platforms further substantiates his increasing popularity and acceptance in the music world.
