“No matter what they say I gotta get it. I’m tryna chase my dreams that’s how I’m living. I know they wanna see me fail, they wanna see me fall, but I rise above it all…”
– quote from “Above It All”
Birmingham rapper and producer JusBadd’s just released “Above It All”, which represents a whole new level of music and rap wave in the industry. It is beyond the everyday jams that rappers in this generation are known to produce. The song has a southern vibe and is graciously laced with bits of good old school spirit. The video is nothing like what you come across everyday – it is a complete illustration of the rapper’s life preferences and musical prowess.
JusBadd was born 2 months premature to a devoted nurse and a father who is a naval corpsman. JusBadd was diagnosed at the age of 2 with cerebral palsy, which was to impede his mobility with his legs.
Fortunately, he began his journey as an emcee quite early in life. As early as second grade, he had begun penning down different rap lines. He found his rap writing skills most useful during classes. Nevertheless, he couldn’t take any other step towards a career in music at that age. However, by the time his parents separated and divorced, JusBadd was left to the influence of his counsellor. And on discovering the rap lyrics JusBadd had been writing in class, his counsellor volunteered her office for the young artist to record his very first album.
Fast forward to 2013, Jusbadd continued his pursuit for a career in music by enrolling in a community college. He continued in bold notable steps by harnessing the internet for his career. He enrolled and won various online contests for rappers. And consequently, he received honors and endorsements from the likes of Funk Volume and Jee-Juh.
