Interview Section With Jwavves
If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?
I would collaborate with Rod Wave. Biggest reason being the amount of passion he puts in his music, and also his message. I feel that music can heal the world and his music heals people. Which is what I want my music to do, touch people in a way that they feel connected to me through my music.
What differentiates you from the next “wannabe” rapper?
What I feel differentiates me from really any rapper is my hunger to win. Also my faith in knowing that one day soon I will be apart of the music industry. A lot of artists want to start a music career and drop only one song then get discouraged when it doesn’t get the love they wanted or the streams were low and give up. Or they don’t want to put the work in to get themselves where they want to be. But with me, I’m down to do whatever to get where I want to be.
How do you plan to breakthrough?
By taking advantage to every opportunity. They say “it takes that one person, or that one song” but I’m not trying to sit and wait for it to come, I’ve got to go and get it.
Difficulties of the come up?
I feel the biggest road block during my come up was me having to do 4 months in jail. It was a little over month after I dropped my first tape, “Different Breed.” I didn’t get to really celebrate and push it while it was out. I came home April 2021, and promised I wouldn’t stop putting my all in the music and since then I’ve created opportunities for myself and been places I’ve waited a long time to be.
Where do you think the future of the music industry lies?
It’ll either get much better or much worse. It’s become so simple to make music that even the artists now with great music out, get put in the shadows of music that holds less value. Personally, I want to see music become valued again as a whole.
