From foster care kid to hip hop visionary, Jay Fred brings ‘No Autotune’ to music fans nationwide
Baton Rouge, LA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2020 -- According to indie hip hop artist Jay Fred, no one from his hometown has ever made it on the national stage.
He wants to change that.
The artist just dropped a new EP, building on several earlier single releases on iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, and YouTube. "No Autotune" is a five-song EP released through Jay Fred's record label Self Made Individual (SMI). The album, written, recorded, produced and engineered by Jay Fred himself, includes the tracks "Intro," "War Ready," "Keep a Pump," "G-Shit," and "Pressure Got Applied."

"I wanna reach the world with my real life story," Jay Fred said. "I wanna be immortal and live forever in people's hearts. The fortune comes and goes, but to be a successful artist is forever."
