MTV Upload Of The Week: JessB 'Take It Down'
If you're a Missy Elliott fan, you'll want to take note of New Zealand's hottest up-and-coming rapper. Her name is JessB. and her new single 'Take It Down', featuring Rubi Du is absolute killer!
Of Kenyan descent, JessB grew up in Auckland and naturally gravitated to hip hop from an early age. After opening for Stormzy and performing at some of this year’s biggest music festivals, Rhythm and Vines and Auckland City Limits, as well as collaborations with P-Money and SWIDT, JessB is showing no signs of slowing down.
She just dropped her debut EP 'Bloom' and we’re here for it. She's also a big believer in giving females a voice: “I am very passionate about my role as a female artist and what I want to be saying in my songs. I think it is super important to have a balance between talking on serious issues that affect myself and other people of colour and women of colour, but I also think it is so important to remember that we also need to have fun with life and our friends who we cherish."
‘Take It Down’ is everything you could want from a 2018 hip-hop release – a badass female making music with a message and killer beats. Don’t sleep on JessB cause she’s about to blow up!
