DMV Artist Thee Jae Drops, “Yesterday”

by The Alchemist

Thee JAE is an up and coming artists that is from the DMV area. He speaks on the hardships of his life and what it means to live on the edge. He has been through it all: incarceration, homelessness and betrayal. His lyrics embodies the lifestyle of someone who has overcome signifigant challenges and is ready to take the next step to further his career. He has done tracks with other artists such as: Nessly, Squidnice, Jay Gwuapo, Valee, Hoodrich Pablo Juan, and even other DMV artists Austin Skinner and Emma G.


His newest track is called, “Yesterday” and it’s definitely a banger. It’s the lead single for his new project TRAP JAE Vol. 2. The hook is very hard to forget as it rings, “Had to leave it all in yesterday, yesterday, bought that shit that make you elevate, elevate,” which is complemented by the bouncy production.  This is one of our favorite rap tracks that we’ve heard come out of the DMV in a while. Check it out below, and be on the lookout for his new project coming out this Friday!

In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound.
