Get to know Jaimo, the upcoming Hip Hop artist from South Dakota. Jaimo is making some serious waves with his new album "Timeless". #BuzzMusicExclusive

Hi Jaimo, care to introduce yourself to our readers?

My names is Jaimo, I'm a hip hop artist from South Dakota currently going to school at the university of Florida.

Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
I started rapping and messing around with music when I was 14, I didn't start officially recording until I was 18 and I've been rapping ever since. I've performed at different festivals in the city all the way to frat events at the University. I've also been played on the local radio and interviewed here in Gainesville Fl, multiple times. 

How did you come up with your name? Is there a meaning behind it?

I wish the name had some dope concept behind it but naw, its just a nickname! My name is James so it's kind of a play off that.

Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
I write all my own music and mix and master my own tracks. My style is a cross between RnB and Hip Hop with a lean more towards Hip Hop. I like writing songs for the ladies but I gotta give balance for the fellas as well. 

We’re really into your new song "Lonely"! Can you tell us a bit about it?

The song lonely was so natural to make. I think the ones that come the quickest are usually the biggest records. It was just run to make, it was based off this girl I knew that was upset at her man in a relationship. She had feelings for me but couldn't bring herself to leave the guy she was with. I kinda just wrote about it. 

What are three things you’d love your fans to know about you?
I'm completely independent and I'll have new music dropping soon. Check out my other records, "Timeless" the album was something I worked countless hours on! My Soundcloud has exclusive records on it! 

Who are you biggest musical influences that have helped shape your career?

Honesty the biggest influences on my style would probably be Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and G-Eazy, Also some random other influences would be Lecrae, and Nav as well.

What’s next for you?

Taking over the world. 

Listen to "Lonely".
