Upcoming100: The project you are currently promoting, how did the idea for it come about?
Wes Jamell: Just wanted to give the people an up-tempo club banger from a real n***a.
Upcoming100: There are thousands of artists trying to do what you are doing, what do you think gives you an advantage to break into mainstream America?
Wes Jamell: My lyricism & creativity.
Upcoming100: I’ve heard your latest music and it’s amazing! I can definitely tell your sound has evolved over the past few years from previous songs we’ve heard from you online. What are your thoughts on the evolution of an artist and the evolution of music today?
Wes Jamell: I love the fact that music is steadily evolving. It’s allowing people to show their creativity more than ever. Though I don't agree with some things, I believe it’s good for music as a whole.
Upcoming100: Do you have other passions in life? Do you believe passion is an essential part of success?
Wes Jamell: Basketball is another passion of mine. I do NOT believe there's another rapper out there that can beat me in a game of basketball. And IF they can beat me in a game of basketball, I bet they can NOT make better music…..Any takers?
Upcoming100: With your current success and working with a renowned PR firm such as Starlight PR, What advice would you give to someone just starting out in his or her career who doesn't even have a studio to record but would love to do what you are doing now?
Wes Jamell: If they feel it’s something they want to make a career of, then I’d tell them to save up a little money for studio time. Have their lyrics/song written before they go to the studio and memorize so they won’t take up extra time and end up spending more money than actually needed. All it really takes is one hit single to get noticed nowadays.
