JELEEL! knows how to capture attention. Whether it’s the 20-foot backflips at his shows or his hulking figure, his latest single “GFU!” is a personification of the Rhode Island-born rapper’s REAL RAW! energy.
Fresh off performances at Summer Smash and Splash! Festival, the high-flying dynamo proves to be so much more than his on-stage stunts and unrelenting charisma. Exciting as those moments may be, he’s ready to prove his true worth as an artist. “GFU!” evidently reveals JELEEL!’s next era is all the rage — bringing forth a high-powered banger fit for any club.
“I really love this record as it has aspects from my signature sound but with the new addition of a club music bounce in the drum rhythm.. I’ve also grown a lot since my post album tour, and this song speaks to what comes with that. There’s an influx of new people that are coming into my life now as I’ve gotten more attention, but I’m just trying to do me and be with my day one people!”JELEEL! via release
His debut album, REAL RAW!, set the bar this past May, racking up a staggering 685 million streams and garnering rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
