IMG-20140618-WA009 EJay gunning for the number one spot EJay gunning for the number one spot  IMG 20140618 WA009Since the release of his hit single ‘Hosh’ earlier this year, with over 30 000 downloads, airplay on a number of radio stations including Gwala Gwala FM, 5FM ,YFM and VOW FM, this street banger has subsequently earned him a number 1 spot for three weeks on Cape Town’s biggest radio station Goodhope FM.

EJay was a member of the largest collective of MCs in Cape Town who called themselves Ghetto Prophecy. The crew was formed back in 2009 and had tracks such as ‘Da Hardest’ and ‘Get the party started’ rotating the airwaves. Their biggest track to hit Metro FM, Trans Africa Radio and Yfm Urban top 40 was ‘Oh My’ all produced by Tweezy who also produced ‘Hosh’ and a number of tracks on AKA’s album Levels. Two years later, EJay decided to split from the crew to pursue his own solo career. “People thought I was crazy to do this and thought I wouldn’t make it further, I took the challenge to make it happen and it was worth it at the end”.

Now stepping out on his own, EJay is putting in mad work. Having collaborated with the likes of C-Live, Maraza and Zakwe. Travelling around J-Sec and Cap City, shutting down shows, opening for Cashtime Fam and Teargas and performing at Back to The City 2013, EJay is creating a strong enough buzz to keep him afloat for a strong minute! He just signed a publishing deal with Y Mag for ‘Hosh‘ and his currently shooting the music video for the track.

Describing his sound as gangster rap, this budding rapper has plans to showcase more of  his slick rhymes and lyrical capabilities in his forthcoming single called ‘Bonang’. Get familiar with his sound and cop his EP titled ‘The Best of EJay 2013’.

I don’t need to worry about staying relevant because I came at a relevant time in hip hop, so I just plan on staying true and give people what they need”.
