Much can be said about the current state of hip-hop; as there has been criticism surrounding the music’s artistic integrity. Every once in a while there comes an artist that awakens possibility. An artist with true talent that makes struggle and persistence look effortless.
Born in MD, developed in MI, raised in FL, and fine-tuned in GA, Jamal James is becoming a force to be reckoned with. Feb. 20, revealed an unparalleled phenomenon that goes by the name of Perfekt, which to surprise, can easily back the name up. The class clown turned lyricist aims to be among the legends in the industry with his commercial appeal, witty lines, clever lyrics and animated delivery. Perfekt effortlessly stands out amongst the rest. The vast diversity in his music ranges from rock, pop, hip hop, R&B and rap and they all seem to be maneuvered through freely and comfortably.
The first project “Perfekt Example” (hosted by DJ Tony D, DJ Kutt Throat & DJ Ill Will) released in June 2011 was his break through début to the entertainment industry. This young and upcoming artist has a lot to prove and is expected to do so with a name like “Perfekt”, being compared to some of the greatest such as Jay Z, T.I., Lil Wayne and Ludacris, in addition to the newest rising stars like B.O.B, J. Cole, and Drake, he might just be another great addition to the entertainment industry. If he fails to have you on the edge of your seat with his uncanny rhymes, then it’s a must that you’re lured in by his energy and stage presence. This possible gift to the diehard music fanatics is soon to be unraveled, which leaves everyone with the question….“Who say’s no one’s Perfekt?”
With the release of his of his mixtape “Eviction Notice”, the lyricist is ready to prove that true talent can still shine in the rap game and that hip-hop is far from being dead. Though his musical influences are evident in his music, he manages to incorporate his own voice and uniqueness to his songs. While his music is filled with clever wordplay, memorable hooks and lyrics which prove to be his stock in trade, it’s evident that Perfekt brings something new and refreshing to the rap game.
