Check out our exclusive interview with Rell Jerv.
I2G is here with Rell Jerv, how’s it going?
Everything is good, you know just out here moving around tranna make something happen.
Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences.
So I’m 24 from Wilmington, DE. Its funny because im a rapper but most of my musical influences are R&B. I started writing gospel songs in church and singing there I really didn’t start rapping until I was 16 but my whole life I was influenced by Usher and Ginuwine, Dru Hill you know people like that. So when I got into rap it started because one of my close friends I reference as my brother who passed away now but I started rapping a few years before he passed.
Tell me a little bit about your new single, Nude.
Nude is just a sexy song. it not too forward or raunchy but just more subtle and grown something you can vibe to and move to a little. It’s something that the ladies can really get into.
Do you have a upcoming Mixtape or album set to drop?
I do I actually have a few things lined up. We will actually be dropping our first studio album later this year called “LIT” which stands for ” Legend in training” we are looking at third quarter or so to release that.
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
We are working on a few visuals some for the singles (Cheated on yourself, Nude, Ms. Sunray) and others are some just to continue to build a catalog and build some more momentum before we release the album later this year.
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
I think the industry is in a weird place there is a lot of different creative minds out there thriving right now and I think its making it a little hard to understand at the moment. However I feel like its coming together and the new lanes are beginning to get carved out which has everyone fitting in their respective places. There is a lot of talent out here and it is coming so fast I feel like we are just now starting to find the new formula and learning how to work through it.
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
Right now there isn’t a lot in my playlist. I have the new Fab and Jada, some Hov, Cardi B and Joyner at the moment but when I am in my creative space working on a project I don’t listen to much. Not because I’d be influenced by it but it takes so much to put together a project when I step away from the studio I just take that time to decompress so a lot of the time I don’t listen to anything.
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
I don’t have any shows coming up but I am working on something big that I can’t really speak on right now contractually but it’s coming in the next week or so where I will be able to announce what’s going on so stay tuned for that for sure.
What is your website information?
Our site is under construction at the moment but you can find me on every social as @RellJerv everything is the same across the board.
