LYF & FRIENDS SUMMER FEST: FEATURING JRUEBY & JAY GWUAPO

On August 11th, the last stop on the “LYF & Friends Summer Fest” took over Boston. The event was as close to a sell out crowd as you could get and the energy throughout the entire night was electric. We were able to interview the MC of the show JRUEBY and learn about his experiences through tour and his upcoming music. 
Throughout “Summer Fest” there were many opening acts who brought the energy for Jay Gwuapo to follow throughout the night. Some of these openers include JWU, and Mula M.O.E. JRUEBY was a familiar face throughout the night. After each act he would hype up the crowd making sure they were ready to turn up. JRUEBY was able to perform his single with Bobby Doc “DroppaOpp”, which the singles music video will be dropping soon and will be featured on Elevator. When JRUEBY mentioned how his music video will be dropping on Elevator he was very excited. He said “it only takes on song to change your life.” 
JRUEBY mentioned how he has a project called “STAR WARS” in the works that should be dropping early next year. JRUEBY mentioned the project will be all features, and he also has a lot of great features on it. When asked about what LYF does for him he showed a lot of love. JRUEBY said “LYF is my manager, anything that I do has to go through him, anything to get me to prosper he is going to do.” He described the relationship as “not a business but a family.” 
            To top off an unforgettable conclusion to Summer Fest, Jay Gwuapo brought the heat and got the crowd really moving. The crowd throughout Gwuapo’s performance was electric and he matched the crowds energy. After the show Jay Gwuapo stayed to meet his fans as well as people who helped put together and promote the show. LYF AND FRIENDS, really brought a great show to Boston and they will have many tours coming soon in the near future! Boston stay tuned and make sure to catch one of LYF AND FRIENDS shows!

Wavy Ry

  Starting to make music at the age of fifteen, Wavy Ry considers himself as more than a rapper. He is an artist. Wavy Ry describes music as “an art, not a trend.” At the beginning of this year, Wavy Ry was able to release a track called “Replace You” which featured Chief Keef’s Cousin Matti Baybee. Wavy Ry had the opportunity to take a trip and stay in LA for a while to get in the studio and network. While talking about the trip, he mentioned “ I came across Paramount studios and locked in a session. Paramount has had so many great musicians that have recorded there. literally some of the people I grew up listening to have recorded their best tracks in Paramount Studios. So being there and walking through that type of Atmosphere, seeing all the plaques on the Walls from Ice Cube and Lil Wayne to Guns N roses, Linkin Park, Flo-Rida, so any of them throwback 2000 vibes were made there it was just dope to be there and actually record a song in the same booth as Icons.” He was

From opening to Lil Uzi Vert at back to back sold-out dates at the House of Blues to working with the likes of Lil Baby and Rich the Kid, Fasscoupe has been able to bring Massachusetts’ underground rap to the spotlight.  Fasscoupe began to make music in 2014 and was inspired by his older brother to do so. He mentioned “My older brother used to play CD’s around the house, he would play Dipset, G-Unit, and more. That is how I started to fall in love with hip-hop.”  Something Fasscoupe has credited to his success thus far is his experience in the music industry. He continued with “I am able to give something that really has no expiration date on it. To leave a legacy for people to follow or admire.” These experiences have been able to come from some of the biggest names in music, especially from when he worked on his track “Pray For” whic
