Jameel Mason releases the brand new track 'Big Steppa'. Simmering with a thick, bassy beat, killer hooks and a gritty undercurrent, Jameel commands the flow of the track with ease, allowing his bars to resonate and take the reins. Experimenting with old-school hip hop rhythms with a modern twist, his energy is hypnotic, with each word cutting through the melody and proving why his lyrical flair is truly unparalleled.
Elaborating on the formation of ‘Big Steppa’, Jameel states “Big Steppa was a whole vibe to create – the story is simple. I was in the studio with a dope producer Zeezylit and my two brothers. We were at Ice Cube’s Studio “Ice Cream” in LA. The ceremonial herbs were permeating throughout the room, Zeezy was going through his beats and as soon as I heard the strings to the track, I told him to stop and said “that’s the one”- it took us about 2 hours to complete”.
Discovering a passion for music and rhyming at 10 years old, Jameel dedicated his time to writing raps, channelling all of his frustrations into his craft. After recording his single ‘No Turning Back’, Jameel caught the attention of Eminem, who requested to meet him, however, the New Brunswick native was still playing college basketball at the time and a big game meant he unfortunately never got the chance to meet the rap legend. With the approval from one of his idols spurring him on, his artistry flourished to an exceptional degree, with his two mix-tapes ‘The Sample’ and ‘D4G’ major hits in the Tri State Area as well as one of his biggest hits ‘Quarantine Mami’ racking up over 266,000 streams on Spotify alone. Always growing and developing as an artist, he makes music that is self-expressive and witty, using his outstanding knack for writing to create music that is in a league of its own.
