Grand Rapids-based rapper Jayy Perk has set up a solid framework for himself. At just 18, he clearly has a sense for what’s appealing right now: catchy melodies and hard-thumping trap beats. “Background” is the perfect example of a track that could pop due to the playback value of the hook. We found ourselves humming the melody after listening for just the first time. Jayy has also done himself the favor of teaming up with YouTube-famous producers like CorMill and Manny Manhattan, who have provided him with excellent beats. But we recommend perhaps putting a little more “umph” behind the vocals, which feel kind of shy from time to time. As comedian Kevin Hart once said, “Say it with your chest!”
