"I look into the sky and see these words fall!"
Listen to a few tracks from Jéan P The MC and you will find a story filled with passion, heart, and dedication; things that are lacking in most Hip-Hop artist’ music these days. Growing up in a religious household in Canton, Ohio, the aspiring emcee snuck and listened to classic Hip-Hop against his parents wishes. His parents encouraged him to pursue his dreams but were adamant that he stay true to his upbringing. Losing his mother to cancer and his father to homicide at a young age inspired a strong interest in not only music but literature. His personal tragedies and academic success in high school led Jéan’s path to a Creative Writing degree at Ohio University. Once he settled in Athens, Ohio, he began to record a slew of mixtapes and perform locally, even sharing the stage with major artists such as Curren$y, Stalley, Dom Kennedy & Ace Hood . The 30 year old MC was also featured on MTV's "Get In The Game" with Sway, Juelz Santana & Trinidad James. It wasn’t long before Jéan P The MC became a familiar name in Ohio’s rap scene.
Jéan returned to Canton in 2011. Months later, alongside Virginia producer LAKIM, he signed with acclaimed producer and Ohio native J Rawls' Polar Entertainment. The duo released their single “Shining Bright” but mutually agreed to be free of label ties and remain solo artists. At that point he began recording for his most celebrated project to date, “Hometown Hero”, showcasing his smooth yet aggressive flow combined with carefully selected, hypnotizing beats. Featuring production from Mydus, Count Bass D, oriJanus & more, Jéan P The MC shares a body of music that reflects his environment, touching on topics such as fatherhood, childhood experiences, spirituality, relationships, and his outlook on Hip-Hop, locally and nationally.
Stay tuned as Jéan P The MC reveals more intimate and inspiring stories of his life, his rhyme, and his dream.
