[2L'S PREMIERE] JayDotRain Gets It by the “Dozen” in Latest Visual (dir. by Orgnzd Visuals)

We’ve enjoyed watching the consistent growth of Tuscaloosa emcee, JayDotRain. While promoting his forthcoming project, The Dixie Renaissance, Jay has been on a campaign to ready us for his newest video to his current single “Dozen.” As we premiere the cinematic visual, in which was directed by Orgnzd Visuals, we take a further look into the influence behind  the video as well as The Dixie Reaissance.

While we engage in an in depth conversation with the Alabama emcee, he gracefully shares how the video came to be. “It took three different attempts to get this video shot.” he mentions.  While many of us were indoors during the “Snowpocalypse” as many call it, Jay and Orgnzd Visuals were plotting on how to properly capture the video despite mother nature’s plan. “Things kept coming up, whether it was inclement weather, not enough footage, we couldn’t seem to get it right.” He also mentions that the first thing people think when they hear the catchy tune is “DOUGHNUTS.” The emcee visually looks to bring that to life as he’s seen in the visual relaying his verse inside a local Krispy Kreme store. ”I love Krispy Kreme doughnuts,” laughs Jay.

Moving forward to the premiere of the video, Dozen also features a second offering to the visual as the scene changes and we get a helping of JayDotRain’s Box Chevy. While this song was influenced by Jay’s uncle, there was a similar Chevy Caprice that influenced the need to shoot this portion of the video.

Making his mark this week with his Digital Tour, where he was featured on various credible publications, Jaydotrain is currently preparing a mini tour and the release of his full length project “The Dixie Renaissance.” The DJ Burn One hosted project is due out this May.

“The Dixie Renaissance derives from the original Harlem Renaissance, with my Alabama twist. We all know that the Harlem Renaissance was an outbreak of creative talent and support amongst African Americans in Harlem.. and The Dixie Renaissance is my campaign to do the same. [The] rebirth, starting over…” -JayDotRain
