“The show was to feature the marijuana dispensary aspect but once we did some screen tests and focus groups,” Jonathan tells US Weed Channel exclusively, “That all changed. Basically, we went corporate and sold out. I’m kidding. We felt that it was more important to focus on the family aspect and the emotional reunions with each side of my family — my birth mother and birth father and all my biological brothers, uncles, cousins, etc. I have’t met any of them in person yet and it will all be captured on film. So The Haymaker won’t focus anymore on a dispensary or even really on the music business stuff with various celebrities.”

A song from The Haymaker Reality Series is available this week on streaming sites such as Spotify and Jay Z’s Tidal called “I’ve Been Waiting” with Kanye West’s artist Cyhi the Prynce and Shalé produced by Jonathan Hay, Mike Smith and DJ King Tech of Sway and Tech from Shade 45 (Eminen’s Radio Station). Jonathan shares with US Weed Channel “It’s a very emotional song musically, obviously with an interpolation of Pearl Jam’s Yellow Ledbetter. I wanted the song to be opposite of Pearl Jam’s song. That’s why our version is very piano heavy, with a different guitar approach than the original that Mike McCready played. Guitarist and Co-Producer Mike Smith went somewhere else with the song guitar-wise and he really did it justice. King Tech added the choir to go with Shalé’s singing and Tech mixed it beautifully. It’s a great song and I am glad it’s part of the reality series.”
