MAMA’S ONLY SON

I had the pleasure of meeting this brother back in like, um 1997 – 98 or earlier through my main man Trev who at the time was living and working in Atlanta, GA. Trev was heavy into crafting and working on his own style of music production and of course when you immerse yourself into any particular vocation, craft or hobby, you always attract like-minds. One of those like-minded individuals who was also into music/song writing and producing was this cat Jahah, who when I met him went by a much different name, and I knew him more for his rapping ability.

Fast forward some years, the brother has flying mileage extending overseas and is a talented crooner, but still pulls out a rap or two when needed. He can write, sing, produce and rap, and on top of that…he’s actually good and actually worth listening to, unlike some current “rhythm and Booboo” we’re familiar with. How dope is that to be able to sing and rap on your own stuff!? “Yo! I need a rap verse on this part right here for this R&B song…” and he says to himself…”Self! Hit me with a 16 bar verse right about here, about that shorty we met at the bar last night.”
SHWEEET!!! check em’ out!
