Jay Harris was a standout wide receiver for Exton (Pa.) Downington East High. With obvious gridiron skills, he became a signed on recruit to the Michigan State Spartans, a major Division I football program.
But life is full of twists and turns, and this is a real example. Harris had his scholarship to Michigan State rescinded after he posted the explicit rap video, “Jay Datbull – Datbull 4 Life”, which you see below to YouTube.
In the 3:26 length vid he rhymes about “taking wives, rollin’ trees, and being a real nigga with words like a poet” amongst other insights. Harris said he decided to drop football about a week before the video launched. He knew people would watch it — but not so many in such a short time. At post time, “Jay Datbull – Datbull 4 Life” had over 754,000 YouTube views.
His album is slated for a June 1 release, and he plans to work with producer M. Stacks this summer. M. Stacks has worked with hit rappers including Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.
Only time will tell how bullish Jay turns out to be in the rap game.
