Jaykae, is undoubtedly an artist we must thank for putting Birmingham’s Grime scene officially on the map. Jaykae first picked up the mic in 2009 & quickly became a member of the prominent Birmingham squad “Invasion Alert”.
After taking a personal break, Jaykae is back in refreshed form, focused on his solo
career and is fast becoming known for his strong flow, authentic style & dynamic
delivery. As an artist, Jaykae is continuing to grow. Like any true artist does, he draws deeply
from his life experiences. Triumphs, setbacks, friends, family, dreams and new found
fatherhood all have an impact on Jaykae’s style, as he bares all, giving listeners solid,
rugged Grime. This visceral realness connects him & makes his voice indepensible to
his ever growing fanbase.
The MC recently supported Skepta’s Birmingham date on the Konnichiwa tour in
May. Alongside collaborations with his Birmingham cohorts, Dapz On The Map, and
breakout rap star Mist, Jaykae has featured on Skepta’s all star remix of hit single
“That’s not me” and recently on Mike Skinner’s Tonga Balloon Gang track “CCTV”.
This led to Skinner remixing the artists latest single “Pull Up”, and Mike refers to Jaykae as simply
Jaykae has picked up where he left off, continuing to prove to his large fanbase, why
his direct and uncensored energy makes him a worthy component to the UK’s Grime
scene and the essential voice of his city. The artist’s first solo headline date will be kicking off at Birmingham’s O2 Academy, December 23rd.
