Jerellz – Selfish Society
Born Jeremi Jerell Flores, July 18, 1995, on the Northern tip of Manhattan; the 26 year old New York City native, soothes the sounds of the streets with his unique cadences and word play.
On the rise to become one of Hip-Hop’s most electrifying artists, Jerellz approaches each record as a message and an anthem. Played on Hot97 by FunkFlex, in December 2019, Jerellz was given the honorary bomb drop sound bite by flex donning him one of New York’s undiscovered gems. Shown positive recognition by Jadakiss, DJ Drewski, and more New York hip hop legends, Jerellz has been on the New York music scene for over 7 years, but his latest album Money Hungry 2 has the attention of hip hop aficionados across the country.
“It all started on 565 West 192 street. At first, it was beatboxing for my boys on the block, you know, rapping in the hallways, n*ggas on stairs and shit, and then that just translated to me wanting to make my own songs. You know growing up in New York City, you grow up around hip hop, But I always felt this was a calling for me no matter where I was born.”
