Jay Alchemist

Mastery of anything comes with consistent practice and constant hard work. 23-year-old Matthew Jean-Pierre, or “Jay Alchemist” out of Kansas City, Missouri has without a doubt put the time in over the last six years honing his skills as a Hip Hop artist and Songwriter. Starting his freshman year of high school, Jean-Pierre has developed his sound by trial and error; discovering what sounds relay his musical messages the best. Over the last six, almost seven years now Matthew has battled himself when it comes to finding inspiration and how to approach the world of music. Jean-Pierre recalls that one of his biggest pitfalls was being scammed out of thousands of dollars by makeshift music/talent organizations. However, even a loss of this magnitude wasn’t enough to keep this young virtuoso from moving closer to his dreams. With odds stacked against him, he credits his support system for keeping him going. This support system consists of his girlfriend first and foremost. An avid believer in God, his spirituality extends to Buddha and Durga as well. Jean-Pierre applies certain spiritual ideologies to his everyday life and music creation process. He’s an artist able to produce quality songs from different subgenres of Hip Hop whether it be conscious, trap-style, or even pop. Early influences for him include Nas, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Earl Sweatshirt, and Tyler the creator. In more recent years, he’s found his interest sway towards artists such as Frank Ocean, Drake, Cole, Kendrick, X, and Young Thug. With such a diverse crowd of musical role models, it’s easy to see the versatility that Jean-Pierre brings to the table of musical production. Beyond music, Jean-Pierre can draw influence from philosophers, existentialism, movies, both new and old generations of anime, human behavior, and just everyday life. Everyday life is an important observation for Matthew because he believes it’s important to witness the highest and lowest points of life; there are lessons on both sides of the spectrum. He wants his music to reach millions, saying that he hopes to find himself within his music while also helping the masses find themselves through it; every song is a vibe spread through many different emotions. The advice he’d share with others pursuing their dreams is to be themselves throughout the whole process. There will be a lot of experiences and influences you face that will seek to lead you astray from yourself and the path you’ve set; you cannot conform however, you must stay strong and true to self regardless of what anyone else thinks or feels. He feels that the endgame is everlasting euphoria in Nirvana and that making it to the end is all that truly matters. “I want to help you live in the moment, feel everything that life has to offer, and be as happy as possible, even when I’m low. Because life is beautiful, when in flames or when radiated.” If you haven’t heard the name before, expect to hear it in the future! Always move #CloserToYourDreams
