Hey Jedidiah! How long have you been making music? When did you decide it was something you wanted to pursue!
I've been making music for 7 years now. I was writing before his album came out, but after I heard "Watching Movies With The Sound Off" by Mac Miller I decided that this is what my calling in life was.
We’re bumping your latest track “Mamba Mentality” through the office! Can you dive into the meaning of the lyrics?
Oh man, well a brief summary of "Mamba Mentality" is basically me just flexing. I wanted to show my unwavering confidence in myself as an artist and that my level of technical skill matched with the work ethic was unstoppable. Rap to me is basketball to Kobe Bryant.
What has been one of your most memorable or life-changing achievements as an artist so far?
My most memorable and eye-opening moment as an artist came from the time I performed in front of an A&R from Atlantic Records! She was so helpful with her advice and criticism. It helped steer me in the right direction moving forward
What are your thoughts on mainstream hip hop at present, and your hopes for the genre going forward?
It just depends on the person really. I for one love old school and lyrical rap, but I'm not just a hater when it comes to "mumble rap". As long as there's substance to the lyrics overall then I'll probably be bumping it.
What are the main values you hope to represent as an artist?
Patience, persistence, determination, and confidence. Never let what another person has to say deter you from something you love to do. Stay true to yourself and you'll be surprised what you can accomplish what you put your mind to it.
