JREALITYG is an emerging talent coming out of the Florida area. He got the opportunity to chop it up with @klassikceo and it was indeed a vibe. Check out their convo down below!
Q: What is your Name? Where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
My name is JREALITYG. I’m from Jasper, FL. Shout out to Jasper! My interest piqued as I watched BET’s Rap City: The Basement and 106 & Park during my pre-teen years. Once I discovered I could rap, I set goals for my music to be heard internationally.
Q: Who and/or what inspires you to create?
First and foremost, I love the sport of Hip-Hop. I love to create songs. I love to write my own lyrics and can ghostwrite for other artists of any genre. My kids and a voracious desire to see what I am fully capable of achieving inspires me. I will never give up. Plus, I want to show my kids what sheer tenacity and stick-to-itiveness looks like when you refuse to give up on your dreams, regardless of what’s in your path.
THE CREATIVE PROCESS
Q: How would you describe your sound?
I would say that it’s catchy, lyrical, rememberable and timeless
Q: What is your creative process like?
My creative process comes in variations. Most often, it presents itself as vibes, melodies and different cadences. If I hear a beat I like and it talks to me, I talk back. Ideas always pop up in my head so I immediately express those ideas to my producer.
Q: What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
Jay Z, J Cole, Kanye West, Cyhi, Drake, Rick Ross, Jasmine Sullivan, Ari Lennox and Tink would be my top picks.
Put God first. Go Hard. Believe in yourself and surround yourself with like-minded individuals.JREALITYG’s message to his supporters
Q: What is the most talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?
I’m actually a dope barber. I’ve fed myself plenty of days by cutting hair. I’m also a professional driver. I acquired my CDL license 7 years ago.
Q: What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?
I would open a few barber shops then use the profits to invest in the trucking industry.
Q: Who are some artists/people you admire and why?
Jay Z, Kanye West and Rick Ross. I like what they represent. Plus, all of them came from the trenches. I truly respect the fact that they used whatever they had to become super successful business moguls and entertainers.
Cyhi, I set him aside because of his story and his pen game. He does a lot behind the scenes as a ghostwriter. He motivates me to stay on my A-game.
Q: What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Keep GOD FIRST and never let someone else determine your capabilities.
Q: If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?
The music industry needs not to focus on who has the most money but who creates the best content. The industry also needs to provide more opportunities to those who are less fortunate.
Q: What’s next for you, where would you like to see yourself in the next year?
I see myself performing before larger venues, touring and starring in a few movies. The brand is expanding to include international traffic, endorsements and collaborations. I close my eyes and I see myself on stage performing at the Superbowl, BET Awards, Rolling Loud and the Grammys.
