About the Artist:

Jay Rastik (Jayr Burrows) began rapping at age 11 in church by performing gospel rap before getting in touch with the streets. Thus was born the alter ego known as Hollywood Rastik (Jrastik) (jumpOff Rastik).

Rastik has performed in numerous groups, such as Mercenaries, Explosion, Syndicate, before deciding to chase his dream as an independent artist. Teaming up with Maurice "moe da blood" Holman, Rastik helped launch one of the best independent labels in Erie, InDaStreets Ent, in (2003) and released his first studio album entitled "Post Game Analysis," a hit that sold out at Media Play three times.

Rastik followed the album up with a compilation called "Street Conscience," which gained a strong street buzz and went on two drop lots of cd's and mix tapes. Since then, Rastik has tapped into his video editing skills and produced one of the most prolific DVD mix tape series in Northwest Pennsylvania titled "Street Bang Em" vol.1 (from my hood 2 your hood) & "street bang em vol.2 (go hard or go home).

In addition to his hip hop artistry, Rastik also owns an online lingerie store www.fanmbel.storenvy.com Rastik also produces a local TV show on (channel 2) called Rastik Reloaded.
