As a music journalist, it’s dope to see an artist’s progression. Jetty has graced our pages once before from his JetWave release awhile back and it was evident in our sit-down that the time in-between has been productive and rewarding for him.

“I have an affinity, an infatuation for words and for what people are rapping about and not knowing what they were talking about which made me have to look up what they were talking about and it’s making me learn more.” –Jetty Santiago

 

Santiago Summers released on August 15th, has 12 tracks and was originally a project that Jetty was balancing between two other projects before the pandemic hit. Jetty talked about the struggle to gain inspiration to create during this time in our interview. You can check out the full interview of our sit-down by clicking the link below.
