Jayson Cash is starting off 2023 right with his return to the Power 106 studios, and this time he’s back to chop it up with DJ Carisma and DJ Wavy for the latest installment of the Rolling Loud Saturday Night Loud series.
Having already touched down with the L.A. Leakers for a debut freestyle, the Carson-bred native represented everything about his city. Cash shares his experience growing up in church, which was his “first stage” in his childhood, and how that shaped his musical ear and passion for art. With staple West Coast legends are his early musical influences, which include Suga Free, DJ Quik, and Snoop, Jayson says that he was equally inspired by acts that were coming up as he began to get more involved with his own career. Rappers like Casey Veggies, Dom Kennedy, and Kendrick Lamar continued to fuel his drive to be in the same conversations as his peers.
Taking a moment to shed some light on how he actually got into rap, Jayson Cash explains that it was rapper, actor, and businessman Bow Wow who inspired him to actually rap and hone his skill early on.
Jayson Cash goes on to speak about the misconceptions of naming an artist as someone who is “up next,” shares the advice his manager Fuzzy gave him, and how being from Los Angeles shouldn’t put a limit on the Cali sound.
