An interview with enigmatic artist J Bentayaga

by | Oct 6, 2021

J Bentayga is an American recording artist from Fort Worth, TX. The life of the sigma male is far from ordinary. Whilst its inner life is simple, his vision for what he wants to bring to the external world is extremely profound. He is a man of very few words but with the imagination of a genius. To get him to talk is to change your life with what seems like lifetimes of wisdom. 1 In Music meets the artist.

1 In Music: What is unique about you and your music?

J Bentayga [JB]: I am a very moody artist. I possess a very unique energy that gives me a very unique life. I attract a lot of people and high quality women. So, I can come off as very arrogant in some songs because I am a very validated individual. Yet I am a lover at the same time and seek deeper connections with my partners. So, you really get to experience two sides of the same person sometimes at the same time even. It makes it a very unique experience getting to know a person like me.

1 In Music: What or who shaped your music and who supports you?

JB: I am inspired by Drake, Kanye, Drake, Lil Baby, Drake, Travis Scott, Drake, Mark Zuckerberg, Cristiano Ronaldo, LeBron James, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Drake

1 In Music: Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?

JB: Like previously stated, although I am very nice to the people I let into my life, I am otherwise a very arrogant person. To me, I am the GOAT. I am the king of my reality. I will always view myself as the next best thing to come up. So as long as I am not where I want to be, I will consider myself the most undervalued music artist. It’s not that I need to tweak who I am, it’s that people don’t understand me the correct way. I am trying to work on myself because I can be hard to work with, but people seem to be okay with it because when all is said and done, I will deliver an objectively good feature and take your song to the next level.

1 In Music: Success to you is…?

JB: I pride freedom over everything.
I don’t care how much you make if you’re not happy doing what you’re doing.
I understand that currency is time not money.

1 In Music: Thank you for your time and insight into who you are. Where do we find your current and upcoming music projects?
