“Jaykae has moved on to making fully realized music that’s every bit as attention-worthy as his early freestyles.” – i-D
“Jaykae is the guy right now. The whole Birmingham energy is so direct and unadorned, and there is nothing else like it in the club.” – Mike Skinner
“The Brum rap scene has been going from strength to strength as of late, and heavyweight MC Jaykae is emblematic of that.”
– DJ MAG
“One of the leading figures in the scene.”
– GRM Daily
“The recent success is both more compelling and influential for both spectators and artists alike. It’s an underdog story from an underdog city.”
– Nation of Billions
Jaykae has built up a reputation as a rapper’s rapper with his skills being called upon by a host of big names.
Dave invited him on his current tour which concludes with two nights at the O2 Academy Brixton; he’s worked with Mike Skinner and joined The Streets live on stage. He even guested at Tiffany Calver’s support set during Drake’s huge Birmingham arena show.
Now Jaykae releases a brand new song in the shape of ‘On The Way Home’.
Annie Mac premiered the song as her Hottest Record in the World, which finds the Birmingham artist joining forces with Manchester’s rising rap star Aitch.
‘On The Way Home’ contrasts Jaykae’s urgent, powerful delivery with Aitch’s laid-back flow, all set to a beat courtesy of ‘Moscow’ producer Bowzer Boss.
Having first come under the spotlight with Invasion Alert, Jaykae released his debut EP ‘Where Have You Been?’ at the end of 2017.
The lead track ‘Moscow’ amassed over seventeen million streams and The Rated Awards nominated its ambitious visual, influenced by ‘Peaky Blinders’ for Best Video.
He turned into an in-demand collaborator too, featuring on tracks alongside The Streets, Rudimental, Cadet, Swarmz, Geko, Nathan Daw, Rude Kid, and Big Stygs.
Jaykae featured in Guz Khan’s BBC3 comedy ‘Man Like Mobeen’ earlier this year.
