Rochester-born, Atlanta-raised recording artist Jazz Ingram today shares his new single ‘2AM’. The single is available to buy and stream today on all partners via b4.
Musing on his potential retirement from the party scene, 21-year-old Ingram considers the next best alternative to being out at 2am: being home at 2am. “People party like it’s their profession, you know,” he remarks. “When I wrote this song I was really at the beginning of my ‘I could not go out’ phase. This song is kind of a record of my intentions changing from being out all the time to where I’m at now.” ‘2AM’ is produced by NYC-based hip hop producer and Princess Nokia collaborator Owwwls and is the latest addition to Ingram’s now dependable output of punchy rap gems – or “diary entries”, as he calls them. His growing catalogue of tracks covers everything from his undying love of hip hop (‘Blue Gatorade’) to cathartic midnight freestyles (‘U Turn’), all released through his label partner, the buzzing NYC-based imprint b4.
Born the son of a poet in Rochester, NY, Jazz Ingram’s proficiency with words developed at a young age. Moving with his immediate family to Atlanta, one Jazz’s earliest exposures to rap was via his cousin Audra the Rapper who encouraged him to rap over preset beats.
Uploading his first single at the age of 15 – entitled ‘Make Em Bounce’ – helped build Jazz a small but devoted online following. Now, with 2 EP’s worth of weird and wonderful tracks under his belt, Jazz’s latest cut further cements his cult status as one of Atlanta’s most exciting new voices.
