Mentored by the likes of hip-hop luminaries such as Yasiin Bey, Lupe Fiasco and Grammy winning producer Chad Hugo of The Neptunes, West Coast rapper Jallal just premiered his new music video yesterday for the latest single “The Truth” which features Carrie Bernans, Jackie Fernandez, and Natalie Clark.
His first single off this project was the track “Without Drake, Mos Def and Lupe Fiasco and received over 11 million Soundcloud streams.With his highly anticipated upcoming album Untold Truth, it’s apparent that Jallal is strategically positioned to reach the highest levels of success in the music business.
After the release of his second mixtape Unwilling Fortay Jallal would get an unexpected call from Grammy and Emmy nominated rapper/actor Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) who would say, ‘Yo, I heard your album release was dope. Let’s link up.” Yasiin invited Jallal to a show and the invitation would be the genesis of a bond that continues to this day. Jallal served as opening act for several of Yasiin’s live shows while collaborating with him musically.
Jallal says, “The song comes from a place of feeling down. It addresses the concept of humanity versus celebrity. Even though celebrities are human, they’re expected to be impervious to emotional peaks and valleys.”
