Navi : Tell Us something ’bout your history with “The B.T.O.”
EmenJay : “Well about B.T.O, B.T.O stands for Big Time Operators. It’s a group of three artists named EMENJAY, BIG KRONIK and D BRASSIC.Me, THE EMENJAY is from Punjab(hoshiarpur)currently working with an eye specialist as a P.A. besides all of this rap shit. KRONIK is so kronik in his life. He is also doing MBA in pune right now,he is actually from delhi but due to his studies he has to live up with that. And about BRASSIC he is from Calcutta, he is currently doing law.Kronik’s real name is Akash.My real name is Manoj and Brassic’s real name is Ashwini. We met on the orkut website by battling wit each other on EFFI EMINEM community, we spit verses on our life and reality.Then we found that the lives that we are living are quite similar to each other’s.That was the biggest reason for our friendship and after sometime we planned to launch ourselves as a band called B.T.O. when they are done with their studies….”
Navi : Actually who is EmenJay ?
EmenJay :“As I already told my real name is “Manoj”.I am from Hoshiarpur(Punjab),and i’m workin with an eye specialist as a P.A.”
Navi : How did you come up the name “EmenJay” ?
EmenJay :” I heard that lots of people say that EMENJAY is the combination on “EMINEM AND JAY Z” probably its not what it looks..its a combination of my two names MANOJ AND JACK …. MANOJ is my real name and JACK is my nick name …. I took M from MANOJ and J from JACK and formed it M&J to call it EMENJAY….
Lots of people think that I try to mimic eminem. I don’t have my own originality and I wanna tell ’em that I don’t mimic anyone.It’s in my blood.Believe it or not when I rap I purely sound like EMINEM and the life that I am living is quite similar to him.In creating multies it always stays on my tongue, the voice that I got is god gifted couse its very same that he has. And about being struggler I don’t give a fuck for anyone. I don’t have my dad. I have my sis and my mom, my dad died when I was 5 and now I have to help that woman(my mom) who raised me to that level where I am now and I don’t feel guilty about being a copy of him I feel proud for being similar to him and I will achieve my goal one day…”
Navi : About your debut “The Beginning”
EmenJay :” beginning is all about the beginning of me, it’s the beginning of my carrier, beginning of my rap thing, beginning of my life,, that’s why I thought that name for my first MIXTAPE….”
