Louisiana, wake up!! Exclusive interview with hip-hop artist JussNel
We have said it many times before, and we'll say it again. The music industry is a tough place. It's certainly not for people with a heart made of glass, as it will be shattered and stepped on many times over. But every now and again we find these great artists that is flying right below the radar of those big industry sharks. JussNel is one of these artists! We have him in the spotlight today, asking him to share some of his thoughts about life in music, his career and influences. Without further ado, lets get to the interview!
What is your musical background? How did you get into music?
I’ve been making music since 2020. I was in the navy for five years and I met another rapper while I was on my ship name Venus vess and after a few bored freestyle sessions he motivated me start putting out music and writing more music. I put 4 songs out that same year but took them down this year.
What's the role of an artist in the society?
I feel like the role of an artist is to be get to a level to where you can help your community and people outside of your community whether that be money, food, or exposure with their music.
Tell me how you have been developing your music this far
I feel like my music is still developing but I’ve been working on my sound quality trying to improve that and the lengths of my songs.
Describe your dream project
My dream project would be an album with features from Lil Wayne, Lil baby, Boosie Badass, Future, and Young Nudy.
What are your biggest influences?
I’d say my biggest influence is Young Nudy I love his beats and his flow, but I don’t bite I try to have my own distinct sound.
How do you define success as an artist?
I think as an artist your successful when you can buy your mama a house and take care of your immediate family’s debts.
What is the biggest challenge of being an artist?
The biggest challenge of being a artist especially from Louisiana is being heard and having people give you a chance.
What is the biggest mistake you have made in your career to this point?
My biggest mistake was not taking it seriously in the beginning and investing in myself as I do now.
What is your biggest accomplishment in your career this far?
My biggest accomplishment this year was putting out my first album (**TRAUMA**) it got over 3,000 streams within the first week of being released.
Anything you would like to tell your fans?
My fans and supporters thank you the continued support and I appreciate all of y’all
