In the midst of an ever-evolving Hip Hop landscape, Jelie is one of the most versatile rappers and producers around.
Jelie, who was reared in Denver, Colorado, is destined to become an unstoppable force in the underground hip-hop scene due to her passion, concentration, and persistence.
She would rhyme along to music and play rapping video games for hours on end. Because she studied Recording Arts in college, music is the medium through which she expresses herself completely.
On the internet, Jelie is one of the most well-known adolescent artists. According to my own experience, I’ve never seen any young artist take branding more seriously than Jelie.
Her songs are based on her own experiences, and she uses her musical skills to convey tales and viewpoints that will resonate with a wide range of people.
Jelie, whose name is pronounced “Jel-eye” is an avant-garde artist who isn’t afraid to defy convention and challenge listeners’ preconceived notions of what music may be. When it comes to her music, Jelie is motivated by a desire to uplift, inspire, and share the tale of her life in her own unique manner.
Using her abilities, she presented a Ted Talk to assist young artists and entrepreneurs expand their businesses.
MrrrDaisy of Music Arena Gh had a private talk with her in which she discussed her brand, aspirations and what she has in store for the globe.
What is your real and official showbiz name?
My artist name is Jelie, pronounced “Jel-eye.” I don’t wish to share my real name via interview.
What drew you to music production in the first place?
My father used to produce when I was a kid. I wanted to be like him, so I started messing around with music apps on the computer. Eventually, I wanted to make beats to go with my raps. It was hard to get beats as a 14-year-old with no job.
What or whom do you go to for inspiration or motivation?
It’s hard to find an external motivation that lasts. I focus on creating momentum toward my goals, and small successes give me the energy to keep going.
What are some of the obstacles you encounter in your career?
Some obstacles I’ve encountered in my career are being too young, being an assumed masculine woman, and being a rapper. At first, I was too young to get into venues, and none of my older artist friends would vouch for me.
Then I realized I was treated differently because of the way I dressed. I’m relatively feminine in conversation, but I like loose clothes and don’t wear makeup. My vigorous rapping style isn’t favourable and is often called “gangster.”
What distinguishes you as a creative individual?
I’m directly involved in every step of the creation of my songs. I write my lyrics, make my beats, record myself, and often mix and master my songs as well.
What’s the significance of the current song or album in your life?
The current song is like the liner notes of my biggest disappointment in other people and a big reason why it’s hard for me to trust normal career-related relationships.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m working on an R&B project. I believe I’ll have a lot of fun with the direction I’ve been taking my art.
What are your plans for the year ahead?
My plans for the year ahead are to focus on the process and make every impression count rather than counting impressions.
