Disrupt Exclusive Interview With Madison Jay.

We had the chance to interview Madison Jay from Raleigh, NC. Who recently released a visual of his latest single titled “The G’z” released 2019. If you aren’t familiar with him read on.

 1. Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

I remember writing a small poem to the beat of Lil’ Bow Wow’s “Bounce With Me” in my Advanced English class during high school. That random spark of new creativity brought me here years later as an entertainer.

2. Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started this career?

The most interesting thing to happen to me has been having an inmate contacting me about a collaboration. The only problem was that he was in prison for LIFE. I couldn’t grasp how a collaboration would happen .
3. Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?I use to spam connects with my music a long time ago thru emails. I didn’t know anything about between BCC, CC, and ACC. Certain people would hit me back spazzing on me sharing their emails with strangers. I learned quick through repetition how to properly send those emails.

4. What are some of the most interesting or exciting projects you are working on now?

I’m working on about 4 projects right now. I’ll be finishing up my 3rd studio album, a few special collaboration projects I’m looking forward to presenting and another 1 Producer featured project.

5. Who are some of the most interesting people you have interacted with? What was that like? Do you have any stories?

I look in the mirror to see the most interesting person I know.

6. Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

I would recommend to always have a sense of self and your artistry. Once you’ve really done that, run it up until you can’t anymore with a solid built plan to execute the art.

7. You have been blessed with success in a career path that can be challenging. Do you have any words of advice for others who may want to embark on this career path, but seem daunted by the prospect of failure?

Never be afraid to fail because the failures aren’t failures, they’re the moments we learn the most in life.

8. Can you share with our readers any self care routines, practices or treatments that you do to help your body, mind or heart to thrive? Kindly share a story or an example for each.

Seek solace and peace at every turn when deep in writing mode.

9. What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

The five things I wish someone would have told the younger me is to save money. Money is a major factor especially being an independent artist. Make the best music possible unapologetically. A lot of artists make music based on the perception of others and for awhile I was a victim of that. The third thing is have faith. Keep God closer than what you’ve had him. Fourth thing would be to stay in school. I went to a junior college after high school and after that I was pretty much was done with school. All the early years I put into music could’ve been put in school too. Finally, I wish somebody would’ve told me how invigorating making music is. It’s almost like a drug high the way creating music makes me feel.

10. Can you please give us your favorite  “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share how that was relevant to you in your life?

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” — The quote means no matter what life gives you, make the most out of the circumstances given. I’ve always made the best of my circumstances. I couldn’t complain honestly, because who cares?

11. None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story about that?

Gotta give thanks to my guy Welsh Da God. He’s been on board for the mission since 2012. We have a plan that will take both of us to heights we’ve never seen. My HGS team obviously, Xavier does great graphic work for me at the drop of a needle. I’m blessed to work with a plethora of talented producers, photographers. engineers,  videographers, writers, and more to make this thing go.

12. You are a person of enormous influence. If you could start a movement  that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂

The movement is that you just do it! No talking , no slick verbiage, no marketable tag lines.Just going out and being a good person. Being as righteous as possible if the goal.

13. We are very blessed that some of the biggest names in Business, VC funding, Sports, and Entertainment read this column. Is there a person in the world, or in the US whom you would love to have a private breakfast or lunch with, and why? He or she might see this. 🙂

I’d love to pick Jim Johnston, former music coordinator/producer for WWE/WWF. This man was an integral part of my childhood and adult life too. His melodies and compositions written for wrestling superstars are etched in the brains of millions. I need to pick that man’s break to get some creativity!
