We had the good fortune of connecting with Jay Saffi and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jay, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
You win some and you lose some. Taking risk builds character and makes you move smarter. How much hustle do you have in you? How bad do you want it? If you want it that bad how far are you willing to go to make it happen.. There’s been times where decisions have to be made & times where you don’t have it, but you make it happen.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I believe that it’s your hustle & your grind that sets you apart from others. As a young kid, I knew i wanted to make music. I grew up listening to R&B / Rap. Made my first mixtape at age 12 selling out fast. I’ve performed all over San Diego by the age of 18. Obtaining these milestones weren’t easy but I learned a few things that kept me going till this day. Nothing is hard unless you want it to be. Life is a gamble, you take risks, even if it’s scary. You become self made. You’re closer to your goals then you are to quitting. So why stop?

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
San Diego is a beautiful place with one of the best sunsets. You can visit mount Soledad to see all over San Diego. The best beach you would wanna visit is La Jolla beach you’ll find that there’s also seals just chilling. If you want to spend a little something then spend a check at UTC mall. Some of my favorite restaurants are Red O’s, Coastera with an amazing skyline view of San Diego. & some of my lowkey spots / gems are California Fish & Grill, Cross Street Chicken & Bar, Ban Lao Cuisine & Min Sok. If you know you know!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to thank my engineers, my day ones, my family, and all my fans & supporters who take the time to listen to me because without them none of this would be happening! All the love they have shown me brought me here where I am today.
