With a charismatic personality that helps give his braggadocious rhymes an elevated dimension, Compton rapper 1TakeJay is building a reputation as one of the most eccentric and exciting rappers to come out of Los Angeles’ contemporary rap renaissance. With his vocal dexterity and his eagerness to improve the vibe of every room he steps into, 1TakeJay is enjoying the process of earning his spot and cultivating a name for himself with every accolade.
Currently working under the renowned management of R. Baron Group, the 23-year-old has ample reasons to constantly be donning his trademark ear-to-ear smile. 2019 was a breakout year for the emerging artist, with highlights including being acknowledged by Kendrick Lamar, performing at Rolling Loud’s Los Angeles rendition, hearing his music on the radio as part of Power 106’s rotation and touring with Shoreline Mafia.

An acronym that stands for “Girls Over All Things,” G.O.A.T. is a relentless effort, purpose-built to launch any function into overdrive. G.O.A.T. includes the viral hit “Drip Walking,” “Baby” with guest vocals by Kalan.frfr, “Arco 2” and a remix to the ringtone-ready “Hello,” along with features from Shoreline Mafia and Rich The Kid, G.O.A.T. is available to stream here.
