JAMS THE FLAVA CHILD INTERVIEW
I2G is here with Jams The Flava Child, how’s it going?
Amazing! Summer time chi is around the corner, i know we got the hottest mix tape of the summer in our arsenal. I’m good, just taking the days 1 by 1.
Tell me a little bit about your banging new single, All I Know.
No doubt… All I Know is our first single off the upcoming mixtape “Flava Child Experience”. Its got high energy, fast tempos, it fuses funk with hip hop and electronic music. It showcases what our high energy songs will sound like. Me n Nedim working everyday to push the boundaries of this music shit. Anything less is uninspiring for me.
Do you have any upcoming mixtapes or albums getting ready to release?
Yeah “Flava Child Experience” mix tape is gonna come out sometime in May.
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
I got videos Directed by myself and edited from the best in chicago, shout out @JimmyRegular and @PatBanahan…
What are your current thoughts on the state of hip hop?
I think hip hop is in a really good place. Hip Hop is the fountain of youth, we reinvent ourselves annually, and the world follows suit. But theres certain artists – 1 hit wonders, let em stay 1 hit wonders haha… not every artists is meant to have a legacy in the game !! Its a lot of clones too, i never woke up and wanted to be anyone less than the best version of my myself…
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
Depends what time of day… Early morning, its no playlists, i put on records. I just pull some funky afro soul shit out the crate, make breakfast, and catch a vibe. I got such a versatile palette of music – today I listened to some Outkast, some BiBi Bourelly, some In My Lifetime / Reasonable Doubt Jay-Z, Dave East is cold too, my people were just showing me him. The city kinda stagnant right now tho, they ready for that FLAVA CHILD!!
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
Fsho.. I love performing, I love to connect with the all the beautiful people, so i booked a few shows here and there. I’m live with Murs in Chicago on Cinco De Mayo thats gonna raw. We also with my family The Cool Kids in Chicago on June 1st … but we’ll see what i decide to do with the shows. I want to perform this mix tape with a 4 – 6 piece band and well see what it takes to make that happen.
