The Break Presents: Julian Stephen

Breakout: “Enrollment”

And: “Jiggy’s Crib”

Name: Julian Stephen

Age: 21

Reppin’: Queens, New York

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Mad people compare me to
Cole, Ye, Drake, Weezy

My standout records and/or moments have been: Any record that touches a fan, or someone can relate to is a standout record to me. A standout moment is when someone plays my music during a party, has it in their playlist or even shows it to one of their friends. Those moments are why I even make music.

I’m gonna change the game by: Showing people that as an artist you’re
not bound to just one sound or style. Like I act, write scripts, I have my own sitcom & I make pop music but at the end of the day I keep it hip hop. Music is universal and hip hop goes beyond urban America and reaches farms, 3rd world countries, & the homes of little rich kids today. It has audiences that go beyond our cities. There’s too many fuckin’ rules in hip hop and in my opinion people are scared to break them for the sake of their “core” and play the game too safe.

I’d Like to Work With: Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Brad Bird, Emma
Stone, Wiz, Will Smith, Michael Bay, SWV, Joan Smalls, Tara Lynn

My goal in hip-hop is: To tell my story and reach out to those individuals that don’t feel comfortable with just being themselves. I want to use my music as a form of education teaching niggas how to get women, chase their dreams and how to live life free.

I’m gonna be the next: I can only show you, and you would have to tell me.
