Jhené Aiko came up quickly and now finds herself among legends, sharing the stage with both Nas and Lauryn Hill. She discusses collaborations with Ab-Soul and Big Sean in this new interview, as well as her recruitment by No I.D. to be one of his first artists as executive vice president of Def Jam.
Growing up in the '90s, she looked up to 2Pac the icon and then 2Pac the artist, citing "Keep Ya Head Up" as her favorite song of all time. Her pun of a title for her debut album, Souled Out, represents what she calls the opposite of "sold out."
