Do you have a day job? And name two things you really like about it?
Juda Jay: No day job, I did have one beofre in Aerospace but I quit to go all in with my music, I decided life is to short not to go for what you want. While living in Paris I did my studies in Supply Chain always knowing my passion was music. So I quit and opened a recording studio. Now I juggle my time between my recording studio and recording my own personal projects.
What is a comfort food that you really like, that you wish was healthier? What do you like about it? What does it remind you of?
Juda Jay: For me being a California boy Tacos are a guilty pleasure of mine. I am trying to go vegan but have been struggling to give up tacos. I mean I guess I could always go vegan tacos with beyong or impossible plant based meat but the transition isint as easy as a lot of Vegans make it sound. lol
When your family gets together, what do you do?And what do you wish you did?
Juda Jay: My family is from the south, Louisanna, so when they get together it is usually around the dinner table or in my mom rooms, she is like the head honcha of the family and everything really revolves around her. I wish we would take more family vacations together but it can be difficult wit everyones schedules, work,school, and kids.
What’s a song or artist you used to “hate,” but you’re into recently? Why do you like it? What stopped you from liking it before?
Juda Jay: A artist I use to hate a lot was Kanye because of his whole fake freeThinker publicity stunt he did a few months back, it kinda tarnished the real image of free thinkers of Hip Hop I have been trying to promote. I honestly got back into his music because hes really talented as long as he dosent talk to much. lol. When he actaully does stop ranting I think he can produce some of the best Hip Hop and cross over music our genration has seen and really pushes the envelope.
What do you feel is going to get better in the next ten years?
Juda Jay: In the next 10years I see more people becoming free thinkers, living with intenton, eating healthier, and doing what they love. I feel my generation is going to switch up the game and break out of the mold of working at a dead end job untill they die. Atleast I really hope so.
What have you failed at personally–not professionally–that you’re still working on?
Juda Jay: Im still working on playing festivals. I have only played 2 in my life, and am thirsty for more. besides that still working on improving my singing voice, but thats a whole other story.
What’s the biggest professional mistake you’ve ever made and what did you learn from it?
Juda Jay: The biggest mistake I think is not trusting the vibes I was getting from situation, I know when people want something bad enough somtimes they ignore the signs telling them its wrong, and when I did this it definetly bit me in the ass. What I learned now from the music industry if it dosent feel right DONT DO IT. Our instrincts and senses are are best tools for avoiding issues in the game
What’s your favorite song of all time and why? (Tough question. Do your best.)
Juda Jay: Europe – The Final countdown. I just feel like this is the song I will play right before I die, so epic! If not that than, in Hip Hop, I would say Nas – If I ruled the world. This beat is so hip hop, it made me want to make music to.
What’s your most favorite place you’ve ever been and why? Doesn’t have to be travel related.
Juda Jay: Paris, definitely, why because I lived there for almost 10 years. I use to be an international exchange student and decided to stay, illegally, for a while, that while ended up being 10 years, while living they I had some many crazy experiences and memories It feels like I wasn’t there for that long but at the same time feels like I was there for a lifetime.
What time did you feel most connected with the world and human beings?
Juda Jay: I feel most connected with my GVO’s, which are other free thinker who see how fucked up the world and can think critically about it. My GVO’s are like the ones who made it out of the Matrix, they get it.
If you had one reunion with all the friends and family you wanted, what activity would you all do?
