JPEGMAFIA continues to document his world travels following the release of his critically-acclaimed All My Heroes Are Cornballs last year. Outside of touring and an ambitious slate of music video releases, Peggy has given an unfiltered glimpse into his creative life through his ongoing How To Build A Relationship short film series. Today, he presents episode three with a focus on his intentions for 2020: staying close to his fans.

In the third installment of HTBAR, JPEGMAFIA ventured to Cambridge Union to talk about his recent release, “BALD!”, performed an auto-tune cover of TLC‘s iconic hit “Scrubs” and hung out with mysterious masked cowboy Orville Peck while playing video games. The duo talk about artistic and personal growth through touring, James Blake and more.

“”BALD!” is the first strike – I’m just gonna be doing whatever the f*ck I want this year,” JPEGMAFIA told the Cambridge crowd. “I tried to do the, release the album the proper way, the little music industry sh*t – it’s stupid and it’s annoying and it doesn’t lend itself to artists. So for me, I’m stripping that away and taking it straight to the fans. I’m gonna make sh*t and if I wanna put it out, I just put it out straight to the fans, period. That’s my intentions. “BALD!” was the first test of that.”

In episode one of HTBAR, he covered Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby” and had an in-depth conversation with Danny Brown. In episode two, the Baltimore-bred producer and rapper performed Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” and chatted with Lykke Li.
