"I've been socked in the face, I've been beaten up by the police, been to jail, I've been stabbed, and I done lost homies, so it's like what can I lose now?"
In 2012, L.A.'s very own Jay 305 whipped up his booming single, “Youzza Flip?," which showcased his seamless ability to make the club shake like an earthquake. After succumbing to a gun charge later that following year, 305 born Jay Cummins, watched the legal system curtail his rap career at the peak of his career.
Upon being released from prison in 2014, 305 aligned himself with Interscope Records and Dom Kennedy's label Other People's Money. With a strong support system in tow, 305 was ready to silence his detractors and oust any remaining doubts hovering over his career. After dropping his mixtape Inner City Hero, he meticulously took his time to craft his debut album Taking All Bets. In 2016, his single "Yuck It Up," became a ubiquitous hit in the strip clubs.
