Pigeons & Planes and In The Know's new series Making It goes behind the scenes and gets personal with six of music’s most exciting rising artists across genres like rap, R&B, and indie. Get familiar with tomorrow's stars today, and discover what drives them to create and push boundaries. For our third episode, we spent some time with Jelani Aryeh in Los Angeles.
Jelani Aryeh is a teenage artist from San Diego who started a collective called Raised By The Internet after putting out a call for like-minded young creatives on Odd Future, Frank Ocean, and Brockhampton Reddit pages. With genre-fluid music which explores topics like pursuing music over a promising football career, his Filipino/African-American identity, and following his dreams, plus his crew by his side, Jelani looks ahead to releasing his debut album in 2020.
