When it comes to being an artist, Jerrel XL is what you would call a musical trinity. A well-rounded artist who can rap, sing, and produce records, he possesses all the necessary tools to impact the modern Hip-Hop culture. Rap Olympus Media sat down with the rising talent for a talk; here is how it went down.
Where were you born and raised?
New York nomad. I was born in Buffalo but grew up bouncing around Westchester and the Bronx.
What separates you from other artists in your field?
I think what separates me is my perseverance and refusal to quit. I was born inspired. I started taking piano lessons very young and always came up with stuff of my own. I preferred creating over learning others’ music.
How would you describe your sound?
I think my sound is original, soulful, and musical. I bring soul to both trap and Hip-Hop. I deliver timeless flows mixed with modern melodic vocals.
Can you explain the concept behind your newest single?
I am dangerous to play with on multiple levels. My mind is a weapon, wealth is a weapon, and I keep weapons on standby if needed.
Why did you decide to re-release your EP?
I re-released Young God Rising because I had fans asking me to put it back out. So it was remixed and remastered.
What are your plans for the remainder of 2022?
I plan on releasing a full album this year, accompanied by several music videos. Stay tuned for that.
If you had to pick one song to play in a room full of new listeners, which would you choose?
Hmm, great question. Maybe a song titled Higher Vibration off the Young God Rising EP.
