716 Hip Hop: Jeremy Jermaine Jerome with AJ Jordan

Jeremy Jermaine Jerome with AJ Jordan

Friday, June 15

Jeremy Jermaine Jerome is the kind of guy you have to see to believe. Listening to his music almost doesn’t make sense without the visual representation of where it comes from. His music is weird, sometimes abrasive, and kind of all over the place, but so is the man. Jerome’s latest project is a surreal short film called “—–“ (Dash Dash Dash Dash Dash) and there is a lot of bizarre religious imagery and a message about racism to sort through, but his main goal is to just spark conversation—whether it be about religion, racism, or art. Jerome will perform as Just Ending Now this Friday (June 15) at Soundlab along with Artvoice Best of Buffalo winner for “Best Hip Hop Act,”AJ “The Crescendo” Jordan. The Crescendo can be a scary guy to look at—with his white-out eyes, tattooed forearms, and sadistic grin—but his performance speaks for itself and has earned him opening spots for the likes of Three Six Mafia, Kottonmouth Kings, and I.C.P. 12 & Konspiracy open the show. —cory perla
