Name: Jez Dior

Age: 21

Hometown: Los Angeles

I grew up listening to: Everything that had to do with the Shady/G-Unit/Aftermath camp, other than that is was anything from Nirvana, The Sex Pistols, and shit like that to Blink-182 or The Rolling Stones. I grew up constantly surrounded by music and art, it was never one genre.

Most people don’t know I: Am an avid soccer fan.

My style’s been compared to: Drake, although I don’t hear the similarities. I believe it stems from me incorporating melody within my raps.

My standout records and/or moments to date have been: I hit No. 1 on The Hype Machine with my first two releases “Candles” and “Love Me To Death”. Those two records really allowed me to take off in a way and get some industry buzz going. I was able to release my free album Scarle✝✝ Sage on my 21st birthday on June 12. It was a huge accomplishment for me to finally have a full body of work out.

My goal in Hip-Hop is: To carry the torch, and keep it burning. I want to stand up and know the feeling of winning album of the year at the Grammys with my producer Danny Score someday.

I’m gonna be the next: The next artist that is able to bridge the gap between genre’s. First and foremost i’m just an artist, that happens to rap. I don’t want to be put into a box or stapled to doing only one type of music, even though hip-hop is my first love.
