Minnieapolis, Minnesota - USA
Who can hit record and freestyle on a track from top to bottom without putting pen to paper?
Two words, Just Jimi on his recent release titled 'Like Me.'
Just Jimi ain't no beginner in this game, every music drop demonstrates his ability to transform and evolve as an artist, and Like Me is evident of that.
With producer Hood on the beat, by default, it's certified. Hood emphasized the vibe with melancholy guitar strings and a wicked sample by Jorja Smith, with the chorus from Goodbye setting the tone. Meanwhile, Just Jimi rolls out his flow like a bright gleaming red carpet as he touches on the topic of relationships. He gives the term lover boy a whole new meaning.
"There wasn't an exact moment; I don't know; lately, I go into a studio session with a clear mind to make music centered around how I feel when the production comes on. So it's just drawn from a pool of experiences throughout my life. That specific song talks about the back and forth of a relationship. Mainly the pressures from people. Which I think we can all relate to when in this age of the internet. Everybody has opinions when they're outside looking in" - Just Jimi.
Like Me has the appeal of a mainstream hit while keeping the authenticity of an independent artist. With multiple tracks under his belt, Just Jimi has linked up with producer-engineer Simon Hodapp to create his EP 'SEE YOU NEVER.'
"This project focuses more on me expanding the sounds; the production is INSANE. Simon and I have worked tirelessly on this small offering we want to give you guys. He had me exploring deep on my artist side, a lot of challenging sessions, but it brought out the best music I'll have to date for sure" - Just Jimi.
