21 year old Daye Jack moved to Atlanta from Nigeria when he was 6 years old – he started tinkering around with computers (a skill inspired by his father) and music in his bedroom and became obsessed with two things – hip hop and Steve Jobs – who he idealized as the ultimate success story. After skipping grades at school, he achieved a Computer Science scholarship to NYU, and fell into the art scene crowd in NYC. One night, he was at a show at Bowery Ballroom when he got a call from Mike Elizondo (of Dr. Dre and Eminem ilk) who had heard some of the tracks Daye put online. Daye decided to take a chance and today he releases his stellar debut, No Data, via Warner Bros. Records.
Daye‘s message on No Data is clear – it’s about being yourself and going hard at it, from the take-no-bullsh*t attitude of “Bully Bully” to the inspiring “Casino” that reminds you to take a gamble on yourself, or the go-for-gold theme of “Finish Line”.
