On "Behind the Lyes", J. Lye speaks on transitioning from his younger years to manhood and how the city of Boston influenced his music and his upbringing:
"‘Behind The Lyes’ is the first album i’ve ever released, and the first project i’ve released in over 5 years. This album is incredibly personal to me, and spends time touching on my transition from my younger years, to becoming the man that I am today. Sonically, the album incorporates a ton of different sounds, but blends together to make a very complete project. The first two songs released were ‘Re-Introduction’ and ‘Let’s Talk’, and a video for ‘Back On The Market’ is on the way. I’ve always strived to make music that represents me, but also represents my city of Boston, and I believe this album does just that. I hope you all enjoy it."
The album features guest appearances from the likes of Nitty Scott, Yung Bean, Gio Dee, and more.
