Do ya'll remember being 14?
I challenge you to look back at some photos of yourself in middle school.
It's a guarantee'd cringe.
It hurts doesn't it?
Oh, the awkward phase.
Please burn all those photos; I know they are still out there...
Jayden Pyram has gotta be the coolest 14 year old you'll ever meet and he's so humble about it.
Oh and he was also in a music video with ASAP Ferg and ASAP Rocky.
Pretty freakin' cool huh?
Don't get me wrong, the kid has earned everything he's worked for.
Opportunities like these don't just fall out of the sky and Jayden certainly knows that.
For him, work hard; play hard is just part of the game and that badass work ethic is taking him places.
We got a chance to sit down with Jayden...yeah, we were a little star struck.
Peep our interview:
Hi Jayden! Tell us a little more about how you first got into modeling!
Well, my parents loved styling me and I always loved taking pictures.
I was voted the 'Coolest Kid' in New York Time Out Magazine and my mom submitted me to a scouting agency.
Not too long after, I was picked up by Zuri Agency and here I am 7 years later.
What can you not do? You're doing music now?!
I've been around music since I could remember.
I was like 5 when I got on stage with ASAP Rocky and ASAP Ferg in a concert.
It was so awesome.
Then, they asked me to be in there (Persian Wine) video.
Not long after that I was listening to beats and messing around until I said something I really liked.
It was a song called 'Choosy Suzie' inspired by LL Cool J.
From there, I was like I'm going to try my best and see what happens.
You are in worldwide campaigns with some of the biggest brands; What would you say to the folks who look up to your work?
I think it's important to always be you.
Let your personality shine and always accept rejections as a learning opportunity.
Keep trying and never compare yourself to anyone.
Anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?
I'm still an active model with Nike, Converse, Ralph Lauren and such.
Aside from that, I'm working on my EP and videos releasing this spring.
I'm also working on a pop-up shop in NY curated by me!
What is the most useless talent you have?
I would say a useless talent of mine is being able to twitch my nose and ears at will 😄 I think thats a talent 🤔
What’s one of your biggest pet peeves?
My number one pet peeve has to be hypocritical people.
Those who give you advice on something but won't do it themselves really get to me.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I wish I had the ability to heal any disease including mental illness.
Reese's Cups or Kit Kat's? (the world needs to know).
Give me a break 😄 Kit Kat all the way.
