Harlem rapper, Jay Pres, gives us his first offering for 2017. “Amazin” featuring Jus Smith is a self-produced record that finds Pres telling stories about the lack of opportunities growing up in Harlem, being bullied, learning how to survive in the hood, & more. Long time friend, and fellow rapper, Jus Smith also sheds light on the hardships he’s faced and how just being alive is a blessing.
On September 19, 2004, Jay & Jus lost their friend, Derek Edwards, to gun violence at the young age of seventeen. And this song was recorded in his memory.
