Reigning from the classic Hip Hop Streets of Brooklyn N.Y. Jamal “JIMI,” Budd is definitely somebody you want to keep on your radar. His name JIMI originates from the late singer Jimi Hendrix. Growing up when he started to grow his hair, all of the people in his neighborhood would compare him to Jimi Hendrix. Pretty soon the neighborhood, and everyone he knew started to call him JIMI. It became his name. JIMI is a hardworking, tenacious, and meticulous rapper who will stop at nothing to succeed. He’s all about dreaming, believing in your self and making his dreams turn to reality.
His Newest Project dropping in August is Titled “Northern Sippers EP”. It was recorded in four months with his in-house producer Schweppes Daytona who is also a host to the project. The project is based on the phenomena of the “Lean” drink. Now that so many people “Up North” are drinking it, it became something that everyone does, and everybody likes hence the name “Northern Sippers” . The style of the Project is slow, a lot of bass, dark, with a fun gritty sound of beats complemented by witty lyrics. It’s a very free-minded project with a lot of quotes and messages that gives you insight on his life and will be worth the listen.
