New single from East Coast rapper JPG gets audiences turnt up
YEMASSEE, SC – A new turn-up song just in time for the summer is making its way along the East Coast from South Carolina rapper JPG. The single is “It’s A Wrap,” and not only does it showcase this young artists unique flow and stand-out style, but it also features a bouncy beat that is ready-made to get people up on their feet and dancing. Telling the story of JPG’s rise from rags-to-riches, and his dreams of making it into super-stardom someday as an internationally known artist, this single is one that is already connecting with a wide fanbase.
“I try to stand out how I rap lyrically,” JPG said. “I know a lot of people don’t rap the way I rap. I’m rapping for people who grew up the way I grew up. I’m talking about where I cam from and how I grew up. I came from the trenches and made it out, and I’m trying to relate to people like that.”
Born in San Diego, but raised in Yemassee, South Carolina, this up-and-coming young musician has been rapping since middle school. It was something he just did on a whim one day for the fun of it, but when people heard him they immediately recognized his natural skill. The encouragement he received pushed him to stick with it, and for the past few years he’s continued to hone his craft. About six months ago he recorded his first song “Made It Out,” and the response has been exceptional.
As a father of two young children, JPG said his goal in this endeavor to pursue a full-time career in music is to take care of his family. Not only did he struggle growing up, but he and the family have struggled in recent years through hard times.
“I became who I became without my mother, who left me when I was young,” JPG said. “I express that in my music. What I create is about where I come from, where I want to go, and how far I’ve come. Sometimes I also rap about past relationships, because I’ve had a hard time with those, as well.”
JPG said his all-time favorite rapper is Lil Wayne because of his metaphors and amazing bars. He also loves more modern-day artists like Gucci Mane and No Cap. He said he hopes to one day create a body of work that put his name in the same conversation as those legends. He’ll continue to build that legacy with another single called “Lifetime,” which should drop later this summer.
