There is nothing I love more than seeing the youth pursue their dreams and completely break the stereotype that you have to wait until you’re older to do it.
By watching Ladies First, I hope young girls/women out there are truly inspired and feel confident and ambitious enough to get up and go after their truest passions and dreams.
Just like DJ’s Amira and Kayla who are just 10 years old out here doing incredible things, is Staten Island native Jayla Marie.
Jayla Marie, who was the youngest star/contestant on legendary Jermaine Dupri and Queen Latifiah’s “The Rap Game”, is making waves at just 12 years old. On the second season of the reality TV competition show, she was just an 11 year old going up against people in their late teens and older vying for the record deal! She’s also delve deep into philanthropy helping the less fortunate by parterning up with World Star Hip Hop. She recorded her first song at 3 years old, yes 3 and even got features from toda’ys biggest hop hip artists, where some are dreaming to get. Fabolous, LL Cool J and more have co-signed the young firecracker and Nas even said “the world was hers” after hearing a remix of his classic record “If I Ruled The World” where Jayla rapped about confidence and bullying.
Jayla Marie is a certified superstar on Musically (the app), garners hundreds of thousands of views on Youtube and her social following combined is over a million!
She’s just in the beginning stages of her career so to see what she’ll be doing when she gets older will be something to see. I’m sure her legions of fans will follow her journey along the way and they are by the hundreds of thousands.
