Growing up as a child, the infectious and vibrant energy of 90’s dancehall music and culture stood out the most and heavily influenced my relationship with the arts (and all other relationships).
A blend of reggae/rock steady “riddim” with a hip hop flare, “BLINGALING” delivers a balance of nostalgic 90s dancehall energy with a modern hip hop flow. Peppering in Jamaican patois-laced lyrics, JAHBLESSTHEO projects his boastful energy as a steadfast lover boy.
A groove – driven, hip – hop & dancehall songwriter and performing artist from Washington DC, JAHBLESSTHEO boasts candid big-ups alongside more reserved self-reflections in unique, off-beat demonstrations of self-expression. Often flirting with patois-laced lyrics as a nod to his Jamaican heritage, his jaunty raps and somber ambient chants detail a raw passion love and livity.
