Wes Jamell Showcases authenticity and Originality
with New Single “It’s a Go”
MAYSVILLE, KY – From out of Northern Kentucky – just a few miles down the road from Cincinnati – comes a versatile new rapper and artist named Wes Jamell. This one-time budding basketball star has been shot, stabbed and seen several sides of the street life, but through it all still managed to graduate college – in large part due to basketball, and its that struggle and journey that he has taken to the center stage with his music.
His most recent offering to the world is a single called “It’s a Go.” It’s a personal song full of aggression – with four minutes of straight bars that are so intriguing they literally pull you in, forcing you to give the track your attention. Though the song doesn’t have a chorus, Jamell said anyone who hears the song will be just as entertained in the 4th minute as they were the 1st.
“When I originally made the song I was hearing a lot of sneak dissing and hating going on,” Jamell said. “So this track was specifically made for them nig*as and bit*h-as* nig*as like them. It’s definitely an aggressive track, but the fans won’t fully get to know me until they witness my versatility as an artist. My versatility is something I believe the industry and my growing fan base will definitely be attracted to and appreciate. I’m a very solid dude, yet I have a heart that’s more genuine than most, feel me?”
Jamell said he can’t remember a day when music wasn’t a part of his life. From the time he was a young kid he was surrounded by family members and friends who loved to sing and rap. By age 11 he was writing his own raps and studying some of the greats from 2Pac, Bone Thugs N Harmony, & 3-6 Mafia, to 90’s R&B from R-Kelly to Jodeci, while still being inspired by some artist of today. But to Wes, ORIGINALITY IS KEY!
One of the first songs he dropped a couple of years ago when he first started taking music more seriously was a track called “My Niggas,” which speaks upon him being shot and some other life-or-death situations he and some of his close friends have endured. His city loved the song because they were aware of the authenticity behind it, & quickly attracted to his movement.
“I’m from a small-a*s town, but as far as drugs and all that go I was brought up in the less- fortunate part of the city, so drugs and violence has always been around me,” he said. “It’s very hard to not become somewhat a product of your environment, even though it is possible. But with all the negativity I try and keep my music as positive as I can without sugar-coating things. As a city, we are kind of in the middle of nowhere – being like 45 minutes from Cincinnati and maybe an hour away from Lexington, which are significantly bigger cities.”
Eventually, Jamell said he hopes to put together the kind of career that will allow him to support the people around him – his loved ones and those who have believed in him every step of the way. This new single is the next step toward making that dream happen. The song is available now on iTunes, Spotify and all other major music-sharing platforms – as is a mixtape of the same name, “It’s a Go.” Next in motion is music video for the single that will be shot by Cole Bennett, a videographer who has been taking the professional industry by storm – shooting for the likes of Kevin Gates, Lil Pump, Lil Skies, Lil Xan and Juice Wrld, just to name a few. Bennet said he really liked the song and that “A dope visual to it will definitely set things off,” which Jamell said helps him to believe that he’s up next.
