Young, up-and-coming West Coast rapper Ambjaay is teaming up with two of his craft’s most popular mainstream artists for the official remix of his massively-successful breakout hit “Uno.” Released earlier this year, the career-launching cut is receiving an additional dose of starpower and a rejuvenating update through the injection of new verses from Lil Pump and Tyga, exposing its creator to new audiences and giving the single another shot
“I do it all for my family. I love music, that’s the second thing. Family first, music second, money third. Money gonna come. We come from the struggle and a strong family,” Ambjaay told Billboard during a July conversation, opening up about his motivations and most significant creative inspirations. “I wouldn’t say a rapper influenced me more than my family inspired me. When your family can ball together, it’s a great thing. You don’t have to do with people you don’t know. I’d rather do it with my blood.”
“I just strive for greatness, I’m not acting Hollywood,” Ambjaay adds, sharing some insight into his future plans and current mmindset. Besides music, the Los Angeles hometown-hero hopes to try his hand at acting, show more of his comedic side and explore investment options. “I just want a lot so people can see where I’m coming from … I got stuff that will surprise people … I want ‘Uno’ to be looked at as a historical part in Los Angeles.”
