Earlier this year, Pigeons & Planes named Bernard Jabs as one of the best new artists of 2018. His online presence grew with the amount of songs posted on his SoundCloud, and he presented his first video for the single, "Wesson." At just age 17, Jabs is looking to capitalize off his growing buzz with his latest offering, "Big Tymers."
The Tifton, Georgia artist decided to make his actual high school the setting for the accompanying visual, and it serves as a callback to carefree adolescence, as Jabs is seen chilling with his homies in the lunch room, engaging in food fights, and flirting with his schoolmates.
As you probably expected, the song title is a nod to iconic rap duo, Big Tymer$. "'Big Tymers' was inspired by the Cash Money legends Baby and Mannie Fresh," Jabs says of the song. In addition, Lil Wayne also was a major influence in his decision to rap, as he became enticed with the lifestyle presented in his videos.
Jabs has propped himself up in a very favorable position. In addition to forming alliances with producers like Nick Mira (Juice WRLD) and sidepce (Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Pump), he is currently touring with rap veteran Pusha-T.
Jabs' latest single will appear on his upcoming EP, COLDHEARTED.
