Growing up, MSC Jay therefore had to find hobbies to occupy his time, and these always centred around music and sports. When he wasn’t on the field or the ball courts, he was writing raps, and taking on any feedback he got. MSC Jay used constructive criticism to hone his lyrical format and musical style, and actively studied his rap influences, became a businessman, and never gave up.
