“Speaking in car terminology, 'ARCHIVE' is just gear one, and the plan is to increase the gears as time goes on," says JAHMED. "The ultimate challenge is mastering creativity. I feel like I’m expected to be a voice for my faith and for the people around me. I take no interest in doing the norm."

Growing up between California and Texas, the newcomer draws inspiration from both Kendrick Lamar and Three 6 Mafia, balancing lyrically-driven intensity and more intuitive Southern flows. Alongside other rising acts like like Baby Keem and ICECOLDBISHOP, JAHMED is a hybrid rapper capable of delivering nimble deliveries without losing sight of song structure and hooks.

For now, his only official release is "ARCHIVE," but we've heard a couple of the upcoming records and JAHMED is definitely one to watch out for.
