Jay Jerkins, ah what can I say about Mr. Jerkins? I think his name says it all, LOL!!! He is tough, hence the JERK in his name, BUT he is a great guy. I had the honor of meeting him on his turf of Orlando with my friends Major & Chin Muzik last November (2008). He runs his businesses tight, and values the chain of command. He is a respected, successful person in the music industry. I look forward to doing more business with him and his team in the future. Hit him up for any type of promotions or management needs. He is a monster and will get the job done!
