Pen to Paper
At the age of 13 is when jay started writing lyrics of his own while still at school where he would use his school books to write lyrics in, rather than do his homework in them. At that period of time the UK Urban scene was getting noticed commercially and acts such as So Solid Crew, Oxide and Neutrino and others were emerging on our TV screens and radio sets so there was no lack of influence upon him.
Jay Fullstop then took his lyrics to a wider scale, appearing on Pirate radio station to broadcast his style of rhyming stations like Major Fm, Delight Fm, Frontline Fm, Lay Low Fm, World Fm, Horror FM any pirate radio you can think of he was there.
Lyrically Scar’d

Jay Fullstop released a solo single ‘Grime Grimey Grimiest’ which was gaining great reception from the underground clubs
In 2007 having featured on BBC Three Singing with the Enemy which received rave reviews from viewers, they showed their passion and versatility within their musical talent and a mature approach to experimenting with different musical styles. In the end Lyrically Scar’d and Dirty Cakes, produced a track named Face Value recorded at Mayfair studios engineered by Tommy Dee. This project did not give Lyrically Scar’d any advantages. as the editing of the programme gave the crew a narrow minded approach towards homophobia. However the track was a success and the Jay and the crew managed to perform at the Cafe de Paris along with the Dirty Cakes
