Teejay Johnson is a female lyricist hailing from Richmond, VA. As a child, this artist began rhyming for elementary school plays and poetry competitions. When she came of age, writing became therapeutic. Most rappers are forced to overcome adversity, which translates into their music, Teejay was no different. At the age of 14 she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. For an adolescent, it can be very difficult to understand the complexities of a mental health disorder, but Teejay wrote through her manic and depression episodes. She learned to utilize the negative energy that she could not rid herself of. After graduating high school, Teejay became heavily involved with the local music scene in Richmond, Virginia. Her four track debut EP, My Perception, which was released on October 1st, 2014. Following her debut release, Teejay toured the south east from her home state of Richmond, VA to Atlanta, GA. Her stops included The Edgar Allan Poe Museum, The Broadberry, Charlottesville Pride, and even opening for Love & Hip Hop star, Rasheeda. Two years after her debut EP, Teejay released her sophomore EP, Love Lines. This project included the single, Rainbows, which received air-time in three different countries. Teejay is now working on a project, that includes a new summer release, Way Up. Johnson strives to create the same caliber of hip-hop music that she grew up with, the hip-hop songs that were relatable and forced you to feel the emotions that the artist evoked.
