How did Jay 305 Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on September 4, 1984, in Los Angeles, California, Jay 305 (Real Name: Jay Cummins) is of Jamaican and Barbadian descent from his mother and father’s side respectively. Growing up in Southern LA, he listened to a variety of music including R&B, Rap, and Reggae; some of his favourite acts included Scarface, Suga Free, Ice Cube, Trick Daddy, Pimp C, and Cash Money.
A huge fan of music, he later began experimenting with his own songs. With time, his hobby evolved into something greater- before he knew it, he was putting out full-fledged tracks. Despite his knack for creating beats however, he faced a fair bit of trouble during his youth, having hung out with the wrong crowd on the streets.
Due to pursuing gang members, he was forced to move to Miami when he was eleven years old; it wasn’t until later down the road that he returned home to the South Central. Eventually getting back on track with his music, he reunited with his old buddies and made some new friends such as Dom Kennedy who agreed to sign him to his Other People’s Money label.
In 2012, the aspiring rapper released his first single, Stories. Made available for streaming, it managed to pick up thousands of hits within a few month’s time despite minimal promotion. A solid debut, the song has since been played over 26,000 times on Soundcloud, to which it has been uploaded to. Similarly, it has also gained traction on Youtube, where it has been viewed more than 30,000 times.
From there, the rapper dropped his breakout hit, Youzza Flip. Responsible for his rise to fame, the single quickly racked up the hits on Soundcloud, on which it has since been played over 71,000 times. Around the same time as its release, accompanying visuals for the song were also posted to Youtube- as of October 2017, the MV has received more than 205,000 views.
Aside from his solo hits, Jay also managed to land himself a few collaborations with YG, The Game, Chris Brown, Ty Dolls Sign, DJ Mustard, and Drakeo The Ruler. Some of said singles include, NDK, Blame it On the Streets, She Wish She Was, My Flag/Da Homies, Uchies, and Ghetto Tales.
Most recently on July 14, 2017, the LA rapper released his debut album, Taking All Bets. Featuring guest appearances from Travis Scott, Bryan Roberts, Erin Ray, Dom Kennedy, and Omarion, the project comprised of twelve tracks including, Why You So Nasty? No Love Lost, Pretty Girls, That’s My Bitch, All Around the World, and When You Say.
From its release until now, the album has garnered hundreds of thousands of streams online; the most popular track itself, When You Say (Feat. Omarion) has since been played over 150,000 times on Soundcloud.
