Our final guest of Season 2 is Jackie Faye aka “Drippy J”! Jackie is an Asian, female rapper and musician from Dallas, Texas. Jackie graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Science and Business, and is currently working as a full-time Strategy Consultant to eat and pay her bills. She started making music as early as high school, but officially debuted in 2018 with her two singles, “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Ling Ling.” Jackie recently dropped a new single, “Jackie Faye Adventures”, which is now streaming on all major platforms.

Tune in to hear Jackie describe her journey as a gay, Asian female navigating a black male dominated industry. Josh and David push Jackie to explore what inspires her to create music, how she finds confidence in her unique identity, how she continues to break stereotypes and barriers in her journey, and her layered views on religion in this thought-provoking season 2 finale!
