Summer is finally here, and with the warm weather amongst us Subhan Sound returns after 2 weeks for another special episode !! Full of dope vibes and great music, so be sure to put those windows down & vibe out to this one :)
The theme of highlighting the city's growing contingent of talented artists continues; as on this episode I am joined by one of the city's rising alternative r'n'b artists, JAIoftheRISE. Fresh off the heels of his latest single "Save No Soul", the homie stopped by to chop it up with me in want resulted in a really dope convo!
During our interview we discuss the Ottawa natives beginnings as an artist, and the struggles he faced in establishing more vulnerability and letting go of fear in his song writing. We talk about this progression in his newer releases, compared to the previous bangers "Ransom" & "Guilty" which made waves when they first came out, and helped JAI establish a global fanbase.
During our conversation we also touch on the importance of self motivation, relying on your own mind to push yourself forward and how this notion of reflection has seeped its way into his lyrical content. We also chop it up about our music influences & his love for A$AP Rocky and the credit he deserves amongst the hip-hop community. JAI also reveals his plans to drop his debut project this summer, and how the culmination of everything he has worked towards has resulted in its creations. From there we discuss the looming Toronto Raptors chance to make history & our mutual love for the hip-hop & R'n'b that came out during the 2012-13 era.
