The hip hop artist, Jay Scales prides himself on being a fresh face and breath of fresh air in the hip hop community.  I would be inclined to agree with him.  His second mixtape, Perpetual which was released for digital download on September 30, 2015 at jayscalesmusic.com is not your typical rap mixtape.  It is not the materialistic, misogynistic and over glorified lifestyle tirades plunked over rhythmic beats that have come to represent the norm of mainstream rap.

Instead, this 18 track mixtape highlights pieces of Jay Scales’ life and the circumstances that have brought him to where he is today, which is not only fighting for the throne of hip hop, but the success and glory that comes with it. 

Perpetual is full of tracks with catchy beats and vivid wordplay such as ‘110 Percent’ and ‘Learn A Lesson’ which describes Jay Scales’ hustle and optimism of a successful and promising future.  Then there is ‘Stoner Life’ which tells of his propensity to partake in the usage of marijuana while ‘Criminal Minded’ on the other hand speaks on his troublesome and youthful days.  On ‘Solo Dolo’ Jay Scales shows his boldness by telling of the guiding forces in his life which is based on his Christian faith.

Perpetual has a unique sound and tracks that can resonate with almost anyone.  Perpetual, tells the story of Jay Scales, who is making perpetual strides towards a greater goal.  After listening to this mixtape you can only be left wondering where will Jay Scales the Harlem born, DC raised and exit strategist of life be seen next.  Let him tell it -- on billboards.
Thanks for reading!
