It was a pleasure interviewing the upcoming rapper, as he discusses, his recent hit “Like LL” he reached over 1,000 streams in the first week. Here are additional questions we asked:
UN: So just a little about yourself
J.P: I'm from the Bronx, born in the 90s just blocks from the birthplace of hip hop, Im a rapper, photographer.
U.N: You coined the phrase, photorapper can tell me a little about that?
J.P: It's just something that I came up with. I've always had a love for music. But in becoming a photographer people ended up knowing me more for that. It was kind of a reminder to myself and others that I still can do this. I'd go to shows and be taking pictures of all of these rappers perform. Knowing that I should be up there.
UN: What inspired you to rap exactly?
J.P: feel like I've always been a closet rapper from young. Like at least 9 years old, probably before.
UN: So your current song, LL is really good by the way, is he like one of your favorites?
J.P: LL is a great. I get compared to him a lot based off of appearance. So I figured I'd play with that theme and create something using some LL references.
