Kazi Magazine - Get to Know Jay Prezi, Harlem’s favorite hooper turned rapper

Jay Prezi AKA John John has been poppin’ since his hooping days at legendary streetball courts like Dyckman and Rucker Park.

Prezi said, “Where I’m from if someone scores on you, they give you the ball, and you have to make something happen the next time down the court.” John John has since traded his sneakers for a microphone and has been scoring ever since.

Music has always been a staple in the life of Harlem’s youngest OG. As a youth, his father traveled the country on tour with his uncle, legendary Jazz musician Roy Ayers. His mother was also a songstress who would sing in tandem with his father from time to time.
