Jay Critch first drew attention three years ago when his track "Man Down " blew up on Soundcloud. At the time, it was a rarity in its field — the song had a kind of bounce that was different than most of the auto-tuned, over-processed hooks that were popular at the time. It was raw, uncut and purely New York. Before the release of "Man Down ," Critch's name was already quietly buzzing around the city, on street corners, and booming out of car speakers, as a go-to artist for the aux chord. To the boroughs, he has long-been a local pop star. Now, if you were to ask any millennial who springs to mind when it comes to those raising the profile the New York rap scene, "Jay Critch" will likely be an automated response.

I met up with the Trinidadian-Guyanese, New York-native at his new label, which he now shares with hip-hop giants like Kendrick Lamar.
