13thStreetPromotions: Jimmy, thanks for having a chat with us at 13thStreetPromotions.com. We’ve finally made that Jamaica/Trinidad link up. For starters, tell us about the Artist named Jimmy October?

Jimmy October: The name was inspired by a couple things. Well firstly I was born on October 9 1994, and I’m pretty connected to the fact that I’m a Libra and the idea of not searching for perfection but for balance. That explains the October. The main reason for the Jimmy is the movie 8 Mile. Eminem played the character Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith Jr. The role of that character really resonated with me because I felt like he was a very regular guy, living a regular life but he had passion. He had raw talent and was determined to be something more. I’m also that regular guy that believes he can use his talents to be something more no matter how much people say its not possible. No matter how much people laughed at the fact that I was crazy for starting to follow this particular dream because they thought it made no sense. I’m Jimmy October.

13thSP: We’ve been hearing your music for quite a while, but tell us how did you get your start? What made you want to pursue a music career?

JO: As basic as this might sound. I’ve loved music from the jump and I’ve only grown to love more.

13thSP: You rap, deejay, sing, produce, and those have caught the attention of many out there. Who have been some of your influences when it comes to creating music?
