Meet JAHMED, a rising rapper who grew up somewhere between California and Texas allowing his dynamic influences to shape-shift through regions and decades. Hailing from both California’s Inland Empire, Pomona, and with stints throughout Texas, the artist knows his history and is a narrative-driven lyricist with an attention to detail of a veteran. That’s on full display with his latest single “JEEP”, an energetic, pitch-changing release that was recently debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show. Sonically, it resembles a track that might have released through the earliest TDE days complete with thematic vocal snippets. “JEEP’s meaning to me is feeling immortal and realizing how much worth one holds. It’s a confident and arrogant hook with insecure verses. You can hear fearlessness at the beginning of the record. Towards the end you hear fear of death.”

“The inspiration behind the record is fear and confidence… feeling immortal and untouchable yet feeling afraid and trapped by insecurities. “JEEP” was created in May 2018 and recorded at my apartment at the time in Haltom City, Texas. It took me about 6 months to finish the record completely,” the rapper told HYPEBEAST. Here, JAHMED displays a down-to-earth perspective and reminisces on just how close death is after the tragic passing of his brother all while adding an infectious chorus centered around dropping the top and removing the doors on the American-classic JEEP.

“If I die today, f*ck around, it’d be a holiday/
Job brings smile on all y’all/
N*gga showin’ teeth like he graduate/
B*tch show teeth, I’m a dentist man/
Whip on the curb, got no tints, hanh/
Wintertime with the windows down/
Tell me how the fuck that make sense, hanh.”

“The video for “JEEP” is directed by Polygon. Conceptually, I wanted to show the viewers what I experienced on July 10th, 2010. The death of my older brother. The intro and the outro of the video shows a subtle outline of the incident, not giving the viewers too much at once but enough for speculation until more is revealed,” JAHMED continues. His upcoming project is on the horizon too, with JEEP serving as the focal point for the release. “THEBOOFMOBILE, sonically you can expect a west coast aggressive tone over southern bounce beats. High-pitched vocals and well-polished hooks. I’m highly inspired by albums with strong narratives, albums with a purpose, not just something that’s thrown together. Albums such as Doggystyle, The Chronic 2001, The Doctor’s Advocate, Stankonia… these albums guided me to create THEBOOFMOBILE.

Watch the full video above and stay tuned for his next project to release in the near future. In more music news, listen to Fivio Foreign’s infectious “Lightwork Freestyle”.
