The Cycle is an album that centers on breaking the cycle of poverty and violence. Growing up in gang infested neighborhoods, and a home filled with domestic violence, the rapper/producer turned to making music to distract him from the pain. This is the story of the process that made the artist.

THE BOY THAT BROKE THE CYCLE

WordPlay T.JAY was born in Little Rock, AR.  As a young child he was always creative and curious.  Building on this creativity he found a love for music and visual arts. As he grew older in a community surrounded by violence, his attention for school and the arts grew more intense.  He excelled in school and learned how to mingle in mixed crowds, even ones that disliked him in the beginning.  In middle school he began flirting with music in choir.

The love for the music outweighed the pressures of street life.  WordPlay T.JAY dove head first into writing everyday until the stress went away.  Those writings started as poems but later became raps. The texture of both forms being rough and smooth.  WordPlay T.JAY infused melody with rhymes to tell his story of how he broke the never ending cycle of poverty and violence.  

MORE ABOUT WORDPLAY T.JAY

His first retail release was called It Was Written in 2009.  A year later things began to change. He formed On The Map Music Group and created his single "Breakfast & Biggie"  The single was soon picked up by XXL's 1st Hip Hop Style contest. WordPlay T.JAY became a finalist but did not win.  Still his luck wasn't over. Six months later the music video for "Breakfast and Biggie" was picked to be released on MTV's Rap Fix Live. There rapper Ja Rule and host Sway Calloway inducted WordPlay T.JAY into the hip hop game.  A few months later WordPlay T.JAY released his 2nd album Nothin' Less.

He went on to release a 3rd album So Much More in 2012 after living on the move from town to town in 2012. The rapper settled back in his home town and created his 4th album 72701 Stories: College Ambition. The project highlighted his time in college and his journey to dropping out.  He also underwent a transformation from T.JAY to WordPlay T.JAY.  The name is an extension of his witty and catchy lyricism. This transformation led way to a change in style.  He captures this new style in his 2013 EP Lost in the Water. The work is a prelude to his album The Cycle. WordPlay T.JAY digs deep to find the important things in life. This journey is what The Cycle is made of. The album takes us through a positive time in WordPlay T.JAY's life after coming out of all the pain.
