"NEW VIDEO – ShayBriggs’ “Heavily Medicated” (Official Music Video)"

“I posted this video because I love the message. Everyone is rapping, singing and has the attitude that getting wasted is such a great thing. Especially, like Ms. Briggs pointed out, the growing popularity of Molly. One of my artists just did a walk through at Perry’s High School Homecoming Dance a few days ago. Later that evening, teens from that same dance got behind the wheel of a car and now two are dead, one in critical condition. I love that Ms. Briggs is trying to be a good role model and convey a great message about the ugly side of drugs and alcohol in excess.” - Rep Pittsburgh Hip Hop

Still working on that hot first release.



Growing up in a small town right outside of Pittsburgh, PA the closest Shay got to hip-hop was Kirk Franklin and The Winans Phase II. Having parents who didn’t favor mainstream music, Shay always thought if she couldn’t listen to the music the cool kids listened to she’d just make her own.

 Years later she found herself performing in venues all over New Orleans, where she had moved to attend Loyola University. Sharing the stage with artists such as Nappy Roots, 3D Natee, Black Milk, and Mickey Factz she started cultivating her skill for performing live, and developed a buzz in the New Orleans underground Hip-Hop scene after she released her debut EP "Heavily Medicated". The song tells the story of a young woman who discovers the consequences of untamed party life.

 Shortly after the "Heavily Medicated" release, Shay's cousin was murdered, causing her to rethink her plan and desire for her music. “I went through this weird time where I couldn’t write, I had no desire to perform, and I was so mad at God for what happened.  I not only felt like I couldn't move forward with my music, but I didn’t feel like I was suppose to.”

 Remerging with a different attitude, a deeper resilience, and a new sound, Shay is ready to take this journey head on. “I always wanted to use any platform that I had in a meaningful and positive way, but I no longer feel satisfied just being positive or conscious, I need to talk about what God has done in my life.”

Now gearing up for the release of her EP ATLAS (October 1), Shay is excited to introduce herself and share her new sound with the world.
