We have featured his work, recently reviewed his “Savage” EP and now it’s time to personally introduce you to the Hip Hop enthusiast that goes by the name, Daley. Some of you may have recently known him as Tazz or even Dalai of the “High Tunez Gang” and “KMT“, but he is the one same original Montego Bay native now making a name for himself in South Florida. Now on the verge of releasing a followup to his 2016 project, let’s kick things into a higher gear with our first Interview with an Artist living completely outside the Jamaican space!
13thStreetPromotions: For starters, tell us a little about yourself. A grand introduction is always necessary to get our viewers super-hyped.
13thSP: You’ve been on the music scene for quite a while as you’ve started out with a group called the “High Tunez Gang”, is that correct? Tell us a bit more about how you got your start on the scene.
The ongoing relationship with Dancehall Music and the Trap Music sub genre of Hip Hop seems to be a promising one. With influences from acts like Migos, Travis Scott, and Lil Uzi Vert to name a few, expect many established and upcoming acts to expand their creativity. Recently we featured a Mix from Jamaican Rapper Jermani and DJ Mac, and today we feature a visual from the single, “Why Me“. Shot and directed by Deth (a.k.a. “ShotByDeth“), Jerms fires off bars while his crew holds it down in the night. The Lo Flame production gives off an eerie sound fitting the video’s dark setting and makes you pay attention while Jerms tells you what his RUDE life is like. Why pree my G? We just want to vibe on the Island wid a bad ting! Watch the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
It’s no secret that Hip Hop and Dancehall have been close siblings over the years. With the increasing popularity of the “Trap Music” genre, there have been more Artists crossing over to get a new audience and test out a new style in their craft. In Jamaica, it has seen its increase starting in late 2015 and newcomer Jermani aims to solidify his name out there with his “Pop Champagne Mix“. With DJ Mac overseeing, Jermani lets listeners in on his “Rude Boy Ting” lifestyle over various original and popular Production. He recently spoke on his debut project stating that it’s his way of bringing a unique sound to the game, showing listeners that he can be versatile in subject matter, and aims to stand out not only in the Jamaican Hip Hop scene, but worldwide.
