Jahmaiki on his musical aspirations and battle with depression

I met this artist while comment surfing through Instagram hashtags. (Just for the record I don't do that anymore; but yes, it was a weird time) Anyways, I was pitching him my services for artist consultations and he agreed and we talked about his music, his style, his rollout for upcoming projects etc.. and it just stuck. He gave me Bryson Tiller vibes, which was super dope to me but with his own twist. We continued to keep in contact and now here we are. He just dropped a new freestyle called Sonder, Check that out as well as the full interview below.
