The Break Presents: Rajeev Wins
Get familiar with Rajeev Wins, a 27-year-old military brat putting out music for everyone to relate to.
Also check out: “Just Livin'”
And: “David Beckham”
Name: Rajeev W.
Hometown: None. I’m a military brat, but most of the time I just tell people Miami and Jamaica since thats where all my family is.
I grew up listening to: Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, Eminem, N.E.R.D., Sizzla, Capleton, Vybz Kartel, and Jay-Z
Most people don’t know I: Was almost a professional skateboard filmer, love the movie Pootie Tang and I really thought once I graduated college my life would be just like Mike Lowrey’s from Bad Boys [Laughs].
My style has been compared to: Eminem and Snoop Dogg. I’m pretty laid back, but I still say some pretty wild stuff [Laughs].
My standout records and moments to date have been: “Blackout” was a big record for me. The video was dope and I got Shawn Chrys on the remix, so it got some serious rotation. “Margaritas and Gummy Bears” was also a pretty big hit just because its so fun and easy to perform even when I’m drunk.
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To become nationally known and have a solid fan base that loves and supports me and my actions.
I’m gonna be the next: Rajeev. There are plenty of similar artists, but I have my own story and my own style. I’m an asshole, but I’m still your best friend and your closest homie. I just want to put out music that we can all relate to.
