On ‘Another Man’s Treasure,’ Jay Gives Us a Look into Who He Is

I’ll be completely honest. I never heard of younger rhymesayer Jay until he hit me up on SubmitHub. I’m glad he did, though. His Another Man’s Treasure album not only gives us listeners a window view into his being. It also is full of lo-fi gems reminiscent, sonically, of an Earl Sweatshirt or Mach-Hommy. That is, minus the elusiveness and/or reclusiveness of either artist (not shade; Earl and Mach are notoriously reclusive). I think that also works in Jay’s favor here. He presents himself as relatively accessible, both as a man and as an artist.

I love the lyricism the young man here has on his project. On top of that, I also love his wordplay and beat choices. It’s, in my opinion, an example of lo-fi rap that doesn’t come off as elitist or any other negative connotation some may associate with latter-day lo-fi music. If you’re curious, I recommend checking this one out and giving it the SOTB special: support it (and dope music in general) in all its forms.
