Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Jamari is a talented songwriter, singer, musician and rapper who combines soulful Hip Hop and R&B with an infectious rap flow and distinctive voice, creating original music with live piano, bass and guitar. No one in the world can play guitar and rap at the same time as well as he can. Fans say Jamari plays "crazy instrumentals" with the guitar on his groundbreaking tribute to women in entertainment..."My Fantasy." His new song, "Cry No More," speaks to his desire to move away from a life of pain and struggle and is on the level of Jay Z's "Empire State of Mind," Eminem's "Not Afraid" and T.I.'s "Live Your Life" while "Go No Where" delivers a beat you might think came from Dr. Dre, but was produced by L.A.

beat master wowJones, also a Baltimore native. On this track Jamari spits a haunting flow and sings a seductive, melodic hook, which he wrote himself. The music video for his song "Kant Stop," with its head-banging beat, is a hood anthem for the streets and a harsh tribute to the neighborhood where he grew up. He just completed his second music video for his song "Let Me Know," which shows another layer to his diverse talents as he raps to a smooth beat about two women vying for his attention.

His song "Hustler's Blues" mixes a funky blues guitar rhythm with a smooth rap style that delivers words of wisdom about hustling in the streets these days. Jamari writes and performs Hip Hop and R&B from his soul, music that touches your spirit. "This Feeling," "Talk to Me" and "Would You Ride" reveal his "raspy, sexy, smooth lovin' voice," as one fan put it. "Your lyrics are passionate and that is part of the reason I love your songs...even when it sounds like you may be angry there is passion." Jamari's ability to flow over a vicious rap track with biting passion then move to a fun Hip Hop song with a catchy hook reflects elements of Tupac, Biggie, LL Cool J, 50 Cent, Jay Z, Akon and Drake, while his live instruments and soulful R&B combine different aspects of Lyfe Jennings, Raheem Davaughn and Robin Thicke.

As a rapper who sings his own hooks and is loved by the ladies, he reminds us of Drake--just add a guitar, a piano and a real street movement from his own city strongly behind him. Jamari was trained at the age of 12 to become a great jazz guitarist. He attended Douglas Senior High School—home to jazz greats Billie Holiday and Cab Calloway. There he honed his jazz skills by touring Maryland and performing for dignitaries including mayors and governors as part of the Douglas High School Jazz Band.

His jazz guitarist influences include Wes Montgomery, Earl Klugh, Carlos Santana and George Benson. Jamari is well-versed in the concepts of straight ahead, bee bop, contemporary, fusion and Afro-Cuban jazz and grew up listening to Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Chik Corea, Lee Retnoir and Herbie Hancock. Although at heart he is a rapper, his ability to write and sing R&B and rock songs put him on another level as a musical talent and prepares him for a long career as a music artist and songwriter.
