Well it’s fair to say that JAE E is handling business in the SW. His new single Go Get It featuring E40 and Thaddeous shade is picking up steam and is starting to turn heads. Earlier today the Phoenix New Times released their Q&A with JAE E discussing how he ended up in Arizona, E40 and Phoenix Hip Hop. See JAE E’s interview below.
With the track getting spins in Tucson and Phoenix, we caught up with Jae to discuss his Southern roots, his take on Phoenix hip-hop, and why he teamed up with E40.
How did you wind up working with E-40? Can we expect more high-profile collaborations from you in the future?
When my manager sent me the record and I listened to it my initial thought was “We needed to get 40 on this record.” So about a week later I was actually on tour promoting my single “Fast Money” featuring Nate Dogg, and he was performing at a show I had done in Riverside, California. Funny thing is, I had to leave right after my performance so I was unable to talk with him but my team sent him the record and he was feeling it and blessed the record with his presence a couple days later.
But yes, on my upcoming mixtape ADITL:First Class I had the privilege of working with E-40 of course, [plus] DMX, Dorrough, Nate Dogg, and Mike Jones. I also did some work with Baby Bash, Glasses Malone, and Rich Boy but we are still deciding whether or not those records make it on the project. I will also be featured on the DBR collaboration mixtape titled Time which is due to drop here soon. Currently we are working with Grand Hustle’s (TI’s Record Label) in house producer Stroud on a few records as well. Staying busy!
