Known for his high-energy shows and versatile rap style, Pell is poised to making a name for himself soon. Here’s a breakdown of the 21-year-old rapper behind the highly stylized “The Wild.”
Standout: “The Wild”
Also check out: “Ocean View 2.0″
Name: Jared Pellerin
Hometown: New Orleans, Louisiana
I grew up listening to: Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Kanye West, The Delphonics, Snoop Dogg
Most people don’t know I: love to read and help serve my community. I also like to wander cities and find new places I haven’t been to.
My style’s been compared to: That of Kid Cudi and various jazz artists. I credit that to my love for making melodic music.
My standout records and/or moments to date have been: Musically, “The Wild” and “Ocean View 2.0″ have gotten the best reception. I recently announced my own tour this fall, Fresh Produce Tour. That was an awesome feeling to see that routing come together.
My goal in Hip-Hop is: To be the greatest of all time. I want to change lives through my music. I want to give people music and words to live by.
I’m gonna be the next: Me. I can’t aspire to be anyone else because that puts a ceiling on how far I can take myself. Sky is the limit.
