Report Story

After a year with no updates, his silence is broken.

Canadian Entrepreneur, Jay Honest, Age 27

2020 has been an insane year for many, causing a lot of us to shift career paths, find new hobbies, & new ways to make money

With the pandemic affecting many creators income, Jay Honest was not a stranger to this. ‘’I quickly realized that music alone was not enough to support my family thru the pandemic with all the new restrictions put in place, I had to broaden my creativity into things I had always wanted to do but couldn’t at the time’’. With this said, he spent the first 6 months of the pandemic, calling distributors, making designs, mockups & establishing what we now know as HONESTGANG Fashion & Entertainment, the latest expansion of the record label, offering size inclusive clothing (with no up charge for bigger items), worldwide express shipping & embroidery as a standard, high quality materials and Canadian pricing, staying true to his Canadian nationality.

LETS BE HONEST, What Happened?

LETS BE HONEST Album Artwork Designed By Jay Honest

Jay Honest releases his debut album LETS BE HONEST on all major platforms October 1st. His album wasn’t very promoted or pushed out due to the nature of the album, being on the subject of suicidal tendencies, homelessness and having children, as Jay Honest describes his life on this project, he expresses he never wanted for it to be a major project, it was something he spent years making to give his side of the story to a lot of events that have left his fans puzzled or confused. The project was sadly removed from Spotify amongst many other platforms due to an artist on the project giving the green light, then pulling back after the album released. The project has now been divided, with the singles Jay owns rights to, being released as singles.

Jay made a statement with this project, removing all previous songs he no longer felt were ‘’him’’ off all major platforms. The only songs that will be available going forward are the following:

- Help! (Out Now)

- WISH (Coming Soon)

- ZAMA (Coming Soon)

- Dream (Out Now)

- Cash Guns (Out Now)
